Fun at the Fair in Support of Charities

At this year’s Charity Fair, every House organised a stall to raise funds for their chosen charity. 

Modelled on the traditional British village fete, hundreds of pupils passed through the Two Acre Club during the afternoon and had the opportunity to throw wet sponges at their teachers, borrow a dog, have their hair braided, and guess the number of sweets in a large glass jar.

The newly appointed charity representatives from each House did a sterling job of planning and hosting their stall, having first chosen a charity to benefit from the proceeds. Charities included MIND, the Ben Kinsella Trust, the Peterborough Special Olympics, and the WozaMoya project in South Africa. 

Just under £1,000 was raised in two hours, thanks to the efforts of the pupils, and the good spirits of some rather damp teachers.
