Kirkharle Food and Craft Fayre

Well done to everyone who supported us at the Kirkharle Food and Craft Fayre! Boy was it windy and cold but very helpful in helping us to raise funds.

The money will be shared between the two facilities.

Autumn Fayre 27/9/14

Well done to everyone who supported us in our biggest fundraiser of the year. What a fantastic day we all had. The weather was brilliant and we have never seen so many smiles! The fooball was also fabulous. Well done to Cambo football teams who came second and fourth and first at KS1! There were loads of stalls and even a police car for the children to sit in. Many were arrested with handcuffs! luckily they were set free within minutes ! We raised  £2.100 for the children in Cambo First School. SO ONCE AGAIN WELL DONE NEARLY EVERY FAMILY WAS PRESENT!

 

Fundraising last year

Between  April 2013-2014 we have raised funds and provided the school with over £3000. This funding has been used to purchase: theatre tickets, transport, picnic tables and chairs and loads more! The PTA via the parents also pay for the photocopier rental!

This is a great deal of money and the school are absolutely thrilled with the support! How could we function without our community!
