THE ‘incredible’ support of parents meant a school raised a total of £2,900 at its Christmas fair this year – which will go towards a brand new play area.

Mendip Green Primary School, in Worle, held its Christmas fair on Friday. Before the event children wore non-school uniform for a day to raise money and parents were asked to donate prizes for the tombola.

The school’s pupil and family support advisor Lorraine Young said: “We are very lucky, we’ve got wonderful and incredible parents.

“We had so much stuff donated. We sent children home with trays for parents to fill up and they filled them with all kinds of things, smellies, chocolates, all sorts.”

The event also had a ‘no parents allowed’ room where children could pick a gift to put under the tree for their parents to unwrap on Christmas day.

Lorraine said: “That was one of the nicest rooms, it was really lovely to be in it and hear their stories.”

The school is fundraising for a new play area for its key stage two pupils and for improvements to the key stage one outside equipment.
