Thank you very much to everyone who came along on Saturday, made a donation and helped out with our summer fair. It was a great morning in the sunshine and we are delighted to have made a profit of £2712, which is amazing!
We were also delighted with the incredible generosity shown recently for our sonsored run. The final total raised for this was £1612. This money will be used to buy new sporting strips, tracksuits and equipment for our school teams.
Thanks you so much to everyone.
