THE circus came to Frensham as Edgeborough School hosted nearly 600 people for fairground fun and big tent action in aid of a charity close to pupils’ hearts, robbiesrally.

It was a thrilling afternoon, kicking off with a giant bouncy slide sponsored by 2LK, a toy tombola and face painting among other stalls.

Guests enjoyed a gourmet barbecue courtesy of Fillet and Bean and cooled off with drinks from the bar, run by the Edgeborough Parents Association.

On such a hot day the queue at Dylan’s ice cream was never-ending and Mr Simms’ sweet stall was kept busy too.

All this was followed by a jaw-dropping performance by the troupe from Happy’s Circus.

An amazing £4,000 was raised for robbiesrally, the charity set up by Edgeborough pupil Robbie Keville prior to his death aged 10 from a brain tumour three years ago.

Continued by Robbie’s family, the charity supports other children battling brain tumours, and in 2017 launched robbiesrehab to provide a much-needed mobile rehabilitation unit for children being treated at Southampton Hospital.

This would have been Robbie’s final year at Edgeborough School.
