Hundreds raised by fair at Heltwate School
PEOPLE organising big parties flocked to a fair taking place at a school in Peterborough to help them plan it smoothly.
Heltwate Special School hosted the Wedding, Parties and Proms Fair on Sunday, April 29, which had stands by 17 businesses.
The event was organised by the Friends of Heltwate group and raised over £300 for the school.
Friends of Heltwate secretary Louise Goodlip said: “Our wedding parties and proms fair was great fun.
“It was slightly hampered by the horrendous weather, but plenty of people made the effort to come.
“The business were all happy to have participated.
“Our school raised over £335 and so we were thrilled.”
This isn’t the end of the fundraising road for the Friends of Heltwate group.
Louise added: “We are planning it again for next year, only bigger and better.
“We will also put on an arts and crafts fair in November.”
Heltwate Special School is a mixed school offering education to four to 16-year-old pupils.
All of the pupils at Heltwate have either moderate or severe learning difficulties.
