Staines Informer - - NEWS - Char­lotte Tal­bot

MORE than £4,000 was raised to help trans­form a dou­ble decker bus into a school li­brary.

The ‘In­dian Sum­mer’ themed event was or­gan­ised by Lit­tle­ton CofE In­fant School’s fundrais­ing team, and was held at the Or­angery in Shep­per­ton Stu­dios on Fri­day May 13.

Guests were en­ter­tained by Bol­ly­wood dancers, a dhol drum­mer and there was even an ap­pear­ance from Bobby Davro, who led the fundrais- ing auc­tion on the night.

As well as money towards the bus li­brary, the evening also raised funds for Toby’s Trust, which was set up for a child at the Shep­per­ton school who has life lim­it­ing Duchenne mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy.

Sam Saxon, a mem­ber of the fundrais­ing team, said: “The night went re­ally well. We raised more than £4,200 for our schools bus project and £1,100 for Toby’s Trust. Gen­uine Din­ing kindly do­nated the venue too.”

The school’s next event will be the ‘Lit­tle­ton Fes­ti­val’ which will in­clude work­shops, arts and crafts, cow­boy, pi­rate and fairy school, mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment.

The event will be held at the school in Rec­tory Close, Shep­per­ton, on Satur­day July 2 be­tween 10am and 4pm and costs £15 per child.

Dancers from Bi­jou Dance en­ter­tained guests at the school’s In­dian Sum­mer event.
