More than £1,000 raised for badminton trip


Parents and pupils have been working hard to raise money for the School’s badminton to Italy later in the year. As well as cakes stalls and other events, they recently organised a Pie and Pea Supper with live music in School – and the evening was so well attended they raised £1027.86p towards the trip.

Parent and one of the organisers, Ally Sanderson, said the evening was a huge success with music from Gigfear, a raffle, a tuck shop and even a quiz.

‘It is fair to say that the School dining hall literally rocked that night and we’d like to thank everyone for their help, especially Clare, from the School’s catering staff, and Taylors for kindly providing all the pies.’

The trip to Italy takes place in April this year.
