PICTURE SPECIAL: Spalding High School Spring Fayre raises more than £5,500 towards new picnic benches and play equipment




Spalding High School opened its doors to the community on Saturday when the annual Spring Fayre showed students a new light.

A host of activities and events, including a sponsored car wash by Duke of Edinburgh's Bronze and Gold Award students, saw three hours fly by at the school.

Parents, family members and other visitors were spoilt for choice for what they could take part in, such as a raffle, tombola, guess the name of the cuddly toy, bouncy castle, cake and plant stalls, bush tracker trail and ping pong challenge.

Headmistress Michele Anderson said: "It was an absolutely fantastic day and the students were very well-trained in running their particular activity or stall.

"A number of local businesses supported us tremendously with prizes and the main hall was full of donations of cakes, chocolates and sweets from students and parents.

"We're still counting the money but we think the day raised more than £5,500 towards School Council funds to provide new picnic benches and play equipment to improve the environment around the school.

"Schools are more than buildings, they are about students and the communities they represent which is why our thanks go to everyone who made our fourth annual Spring Fayre such a success."
