On Sunday 4th December, St Bons PTFA threw open the school doors and welcomed in families, friends and the neighbouring community to share in an afternoon of festive fun! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did - we simply cannot wait to share what was raised... READ ON!
Winners a plenty!
We had all the usual fun stalls as well as a few new things such as our 'Higher or Lower' game and an in-person Auction. Both of these proved really popular and we are so grateful to every business who provided such generous prizes to enable us to put these on!
All winning auction bidders have now been contacted and prizes are being distributed. Details on what each lot went for will be released shortly!
A big thanks to our fabulous auction host, Francois!
A Visit from Santa!
Of course we had a visit from the main man, Father Christmas who had so many lovely chats with the boys and girls. I hear everyone was on the Nice List, phew! Thank goodness for that! A huge thank you to Santa and his fantastic Elves for making the children's visit so special.
Turns out Santa is very excited for the World Cup!
Inflatable Snow Globe!
How to make a snow globe more fun? Make it bouncy and big enough to get inside! Our new featured bouncy snow globe was a real hit with kids of all ages. Members of the committee may or may not have tested it out beforehand - all in the name of safety of course....
Name the Elf!
This big fella needed a new name, and fast! Thankfully the smart thinking kids of St Bons were able to come up with some truly wonderful suggestions!! The lucky winner was Jack who named him Mr Mischief! Congratulations Jack, we are sure Mr Mischief is going to love his new home.
Look back at the day with our little video:
So, what was raised?
It is not easy to pull the Christmas Fair together but our amazing team of volunteers worked really hard behind the scenes! The value and volume of prizes they managed to secure meant we were able to put on an online and in-person auction.
Together with the many many people who helped out on the day, we raised a PHENOMENAL.....
We are stunned by this result and cannot thank you all enough!
Most of all however, we hope you and your loved ones enjoyed the festivities!
