A PRI­MARY school in Staines is cel­e­brat­ing its most suc­cess­ful Christ­mas fete, thanks to help from the mas­cots of Har­lequins rugby team.

Har­ley and Charley Bear were joined by Santa at Buck­land Pri­mary School on Fri­day as £2,785 was raised in cel­e­brat­ing the start of the fes­tive sea­son.

The money will go to­wards ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, new items and to fund fu­ture events.

Head­teacher Karima Mould said: “The PTA does a fan­tas­tic job ar­rang­ing our Christ­mas fete ev­ery year. All the money goes to en­rich the chil­dren’s cur­ricu­lum by pro­vid­ing work­shops and the­atre groups dur­ing the school year.

“We were de­lighted that Har­ley and Charley from Har­lequins have been able to join us this year.”

Brad Green, of the school’s PTA, said: “This was my first PTA event and I have been amazed with the sheer hard work and or­gan­i­sa­tion be­hind the scenes and the in­put from par­ents and teach­ers.

“A spe­cial men­tion must go to our PTA or­gan­is­ers Kate Thacker and Karen Gunn, who work in­cred­i­bly hard all year round to make it all hap­pen.”

Owen, Maxwell, Bran­don, Cody and Brad Green get a thumbs-up from mas­cots
