Bollywood theme boosts infant school funds
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.
Fundraising committee: Dawn Hare, Rachel Reece Smith, Kim Martin, Samantha Saxon and Kelli Murray.
