An incredible £5330 raised at St. Faith’s Christmas Fair!

It’s that time of year again!  The thoughts and calendars of families across London are filled with everything festive and local communities are pulling together to showcase and share the best of the Christmas season.

On 30th November St. Faith’s school Parents Teachers Association organised the marvellously festive ‘Winter Wonderland’ Christmas fair, which was sponsored by Wandsworth estate agents James Pendleton.  The fair was a tremendous success and raised a phenomenal £5330 towards the development of a new school library.

The school was packed with parents, teachers, and local residents enjoying a fun packed festive celebration featuring stalls, refreshments, fairground rides and a bouncy castle.  Children had a fantastic time visiting the real fire engine, playing ‘Beat the Keeper’ and seeing Santa in his grotto. Meanwhile parents were entertained by Christmas stalls with contributions from local businesses.

The afternoon culminated in a very successful silent auction and raffle, prizes for which were supplied by James Pendleton estate agents who have two local offices on Old York Road.  Raffle prizes included a Wii U, £300 cash and £100 John Lewis vouchers.

The PTA did an incredible job of organising an interesting and varied event in support of the future education of St Faith’s pupils.  James Pendleton’s support was also invaluable to the success of the event and the sponsors were delighted to receive a wonderful branded cake and card from the organising team.

As anyone who’s entered a supermarket, bought a magazine or switched on the TV this week will have noticed, the festive season is well and truly under way.  It’ll soon be time to start plan the decorations, hang the advent calendar and find out what the children would like Santa to bring.  There’s certainly a lot to plan, and St Faith’s School’s Christmas fair on 30th November is sure to help plenty of parents plan for the big day.

The Winter Wonderland themed event, to be held at the school on Alma Road between midday and 3pm, has been organised by the St. Faith’s Parent Teacher Association and is sponsored by Wandsworth based estate agents James Pendleton.  With fairground attractions, Santa’s Grotto and a special visit from a fire engine among the entertainment on offer there will be plenty to entertain the little ones whilst their parents browse the stalls for festive ideas from local businesses.
