Wish come true at princess fair

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

LIT­TLE pi­rates and princesses en­joyed a fairy­tale sum­mer fair which raised a record-break­ing amount for school funds.

The PTA at St Gre­gory’s Catholic Pri­mary School in Bolling­ton are cel­e­brat­ing rais­ing £1,800 at their sum­mer fair – the most ever raised at the event.

The fair had a pi­rates and princesses theme and saw the chil­dren dress­ing up as their favourite char­ac­ters to join in the fun.

There were prizes for the chil­dren in the fancy dress com­pe­ti­tion in a va­ri­ety of cat­e­gories.

They also met Elsa from the film Frozen, which was an ex­cit­ing high­light for many of the chil­dren.

Ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded a bouncy castle as­sault course, tombola, raf­fle and auc­tion, fun chil­dren’s games, face paint­ing, tat­toos, a bar­be­cue and ice cream.

There was also live mu­sic, street danc­ing and Ir­ish danc­ing dis­plays.

En­trance was free but do­na­tions were taken to go to­wards the im­pres­sive to­tal raised.

Anita Ar­mitt, from the PTA, said: “The PTA at St Gre­gory’s would like to say a huge thank you to ev­ery­body who at­tended our fab­u­lous sum­mer fair.

“It was a great suc­cess and we raised our big­gest amount ever, an as­tound­ing record break­ing £1,800.

“An enor­mous thanks to our hard-work­ing stall hold­ers and very kind do­na­tions from lo­cal busi­nesses who sup­ported us.”
