Norman Gate School’s Summer Fete Raises Funds For Cause

FAMILIES, friends and the local community gathered for an afternoon of fun in the sun at the Norman Gate School summer fair last weekend.

Crowds flocked to the school on Saturday, July 13, to join in the festivities and raise money for new school equipment.

There was plenty to see and do throughout the day, including face painting, a bouncy castle, a craft stall, a bottle stall, the ‘hook a duck’ challenge, as well as two tombolas – one for adults and another for children.

Spider-man was also on hand, striking a pose for several selfies. In addition, there were two opportunities to win tickets to see Jack Whitehall in a meet-and-greet event, one at the O2 in London and the second at a studio location.

The event was organised by the Norman Gate Friends Association and raised £1,777 in total.

Those funds will be used to help the school purchase equipment for a new sensory studio and a canopy that will provide an all-weather outdoor classroom.

Headteacher Kelly Wilkie said: “It has been a fantastic afternoon, so lovely to see our families and the wider community enjoying themselves and supporting the school.

“This is a growing event, and I would like to thank Norman Gate Friends for all their hard work.”
