Cardiff Benefayre

Today I headed along to Cardiff to attend Benefayre for some fun and games in the aid of Refuge Charity. If you haven’t heard of Refuge they are a fantastic charity who provide help and emergency accommodation to women and children suffering domestic abuse. Did you know that two women a week are killed by a current or former partner and that thirty women per day attempt suicide as a result of domestic violence? I didn’t. 
Benefit often raise money for Refuge, I’ve given donations in the past when having my eyebrows waxed by them and am always happy to do so as it is such a great charity. Benefayre is an event run by Benefit purely to raise money for Refuge. Despite raising money for such a serious cause they managed to turn it into a real fun day. From the fake grass to the bunting and vintage themed stalls everything was just perfect and exactly what I have come to expect from Benefit. 
We knocked down some bottles of Hello Flawless, threw hoops over giant mascara wands, shot some lemons and picked up some ducks with a long pole! They even had a pretty candy cart, face painting and make-overs. There really was something for everyone.
I met up with fellow bloggers Amy, Stacey, Kelsie and Laura (who by the way are all absolutely lovely, if you don’t already follow their blogs/twitter go follow!).
I’ll be honest, I was absolutely useless at all of the games, but, as they say “it is the taking part that counts”. I really agreed with that quote today as despite only managing to scoop myself one prize (apparently throwing bottles at foundation is where I’m skilled!) I still had so much fun.
In typical blogger style we couldn’t wait to hog the photobooth! 
Well done Benefit for putting on such a fantastic event all in the aid of a great charity. I’m considering going along again tomorrow!
