The Student Fundraising Team at Abbeywood Community School have been spending a lot of time over the last few weeks planning a phenomenal summer fair. The fair is to be held at the school on Thursday 27th June between 3pm and 6pm. All members of the community are invited to attend and help raise money for the team’s chosen charity.

All of the money raised at the fair will go to the Children’s Hospice South West. The hospice provides care for children with life-limiting conditions and their families across the South West. The care they offer is wide ranging: respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end of life care.

There are plenty of fun and exciting stalls, games and activities planned for the whole family as well as a raffle that includes prizes such as: a trip to PuzzLair Escape Room, a full platter at Nando’s, two annual memberships for Weston Grand Pier, a meal for four at the sensational Bill’s restaurant and many more prizes up for grabs!

There will also be arts and crafts and games such as ‘Outsmart the Teacher’ and ‘Beat the Goalie’ as well as a state-of-the-art hot dog stand! You can even take part in a doughnut eating competition where you can win fabulous prizes. A favourite at any fair, there will also be a tombola and a lucky dip any child would like – a squishee lucky dip.

In anticipation of the big event, the fundraising team said:

“We would like to thank everyone involved and all businesses in helping to make this year’s summer fair the best that it can be.”
