Kinver Country Fayre is organised by a small team of dedicated volunteers, who aim to support the local community, offering financial help to charities and organisations wherever possible.
The Fayre generates funds that enable grants to be awarded to local good causes. It operates as a not-for-profit, charitable organisation, thus ensuring that grant applicants gain maximum benefit.
