Thou­sands raised for char­ity at school’s suc­cess­ful sum­mer fair

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Or­gan­is­ers have hailed an ‘ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic’ day out for the se­cond ever Play Char­tridge, Char­tridge School’s sum­mer fair.

Held on Satur­day (July 2) from noon un­til 8pm, live mu­sic, and a va­ri­ety of fam­ily fun kept the crowds en­ter­tained and helped make the day a ‘great suc­cess’.

A sur­prise ap­pear­ance from award-win­ning mu­si­cian Fin­ley Quaye in the crowd was a high­light, said Sarah-Jane Ax­elby, chair of the PTA, who said he would ‘love to per­form next year’.

Mrs Ax­elby, 41, said it was an ‘ab­so­lute’ suc­cess: “It was an ab­so­lutely amaz­ing day and a fan­tas­tic at­mos­phere. We’ve got a won­der­ful school.”

Mrs Ax­elby would like to say a ‘huge thank you’ to all of the spon­sors, in­clud­ing Waitrose, Jeeped and Coyle White Devine, who were the main spon­sors, and to Gary Bull who helped to put the mu­sic to­gether and co-chair of the PTA El­lie Shea­han.
