This year our boys and girls have decided to go green with their choice of Christmas crafts they have made to sell at our annual stall in our local Christmas Craft Fayre today.
The children have foraged for natural materials in our woods and have recycled a wide range of materials to make our crafts – from paper tubes to corks. Thank you to our families for donating the materials.
We are delighted to announce that the following festive treats will be available to buy on our stall:
- Handmade Christmas crackers complete with a hat, a joke and a Christmas ornament
- Cork and twig reindeer models
- Pinecone decorations
- Hand painted clay Christmas tree ornaments
- 4 Seasons calendars with our own artwork designs
Family helpers volunteered their time to help run the café and craft stalls. Our responsible girls, also volunteered their time to set up and man the stalls. Maya, Lily and Ruby got busy baking and sold their very delicious delights by asking only for donations. Parents and families also donated home baking for the café. The bakes on offer were worthy of any Bake-Off contestant. I can personally vouch for this having sampled more than a few of the treats on offer! The leftover baking was distributed to older members of our community.
Despite the chilly weather, there was a good turn out at the fayre. The cafe raised an impressive £335.54 for the parent council. Maya, Lily and Ruby’s bake stall raised £31.25 and our pupil craft stall raised £56.00, giving a total of £87.25 for school funds. Very well done to everyone!
We will be sending a shopping list home for the remaining craft items, just in case we can tempt some home sales to boost our fundraising even more! 🙂
Thank you to everyone who contributed, gave their time, and purchased to help support fundraising for our school. We appreciate your efforts so much!
