Burdett-Coutts Christmas Fair 2016

Burdett-Coutts Christmas Fair 2016

It always seems impossible, until it’s done. “

Nelson Mandela

Last year’s Christmas Fair was a huge success, thanks to everyone’s support and generosity. It was truly a memorable day for all the children and staff at our school.

This year, our Christmas Fair was on Friday 9th December 2016 from 3.45pm – 5pm. Once again our playground and Ground Floor Hall was transformed into a festive winter market with sparkling lights everywhere!

The familiar stalls were there including a magical and dazzling Santa’s Grotto, a bouncy castle as well as stalls selling cakes, hot food, sweets, bric-a-brac, books and Christmas decorations. There was face painting fun for all the children, refreshments like hot chocolate and marshmallows plus a wonderful raffle with lots of unbelievable prizes and much much more.

Everyone visiting the fair took the opportunity to buy that unique gift, or find some stocking fillers and enjoy some yummy food. In a few short hours, we managed to raise a whopping £1,750.99 which is amazing – this money will be going towards enhancing our playground provision.

Thank you to The Friends of Burdett-Coutts, (our parent & staff association) who have helped to raise these much valued funds for the school.Thank you also to all staff and parents who made super suggestions and volunteered their time before and on the day to make our fair such a success.

And another big thank you to the Angela Burdett-Coutts Trustees, Starbucks and Sainsbury’s who donated additional items, food and money to the school.
