Summer fair at Malcolm Sargent Primary School in Stamford raises more than £4,000





A fun time was had by all at a school summer fete.

Pupils, parents and teachers flocked to Malcolm Sargent Primary School in Stamford on Saturday (July 6) for its annual summer fair.

From inflatables to martial arts and country dancing to a traditional raffle, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

A popular activity among the children was the ‘sponge the teacher’, where pupils could pay to soak some of the staff.

Leah Robertson, who organised the event with Maggie MacCormack, said: “It was really good fun and a busy event.

“The sun came out at the right time for us and the children were all happy.”

Money is still being counted but it’s thought more than £4,000 has been raised.

This will go to the parents and teachers association, and could be used for trips, technology or extra curricular activities.
