HOLLYCOMBE Primary School held its annual summer fair under a sunny sky, raising more than £3,000 to help support children and teachers.

The event featured an inflatable slide and a merry-go-round from Hollycombe Steam along with an array of fair activities from face painting to hook a duck to guess the weight of the cake.

Two donkeys also paid a visit and were greeted eagerly by the younger children.

A silent auction helped to raise more than £1,000 and included an overnight stay in a yurt donated by Night Pastures, a haircut from hairdressers Mane Street, and a variety of meals from pubs and restaurants.

Alison Arnott, a member of Hollycombe Parents’ Association, said: “It was a great day where children had a lovely time and lots of money was raised for the school.

"We are very fortunate to receive sponsorship and support from local companies, parents and children which all helps to make the day so successful.”

There was also the opportunity for children to display some of the work they have been creating in various clubs, as well as a display from the gymnastics club and a flute recital.

Homemade cakes, flapjacks and brownies were available to buy and children donated books and games to help raise additional funds.
