The Garth School in Spalding held their annual Summer Fair on Saturday 7th July.
Organised by their Friends Association – FOGS, the event was held on a scorching hot day and brought a record turn out from school kids, relatives, friends and families.
Garth & FOGS staff worked together setting up stalls and games for the Fair goers! There was a Disco Dome Bouncy Castle, ice creams on sale from ‘Laddies of Holbeach’, and a full barbeque from Ye Old Abbey of Crowland. The stalls included a Tombola, Hoopla, Squirt the Sweets, Higher or Lower, Face Painting, Hair Styling, and a new one for this year – The Bush Tucker Trail! Garth Teachers, Charlie and Tess, even braved the stocks!
The raffle attracted a lot of attention this year too, with a £200 1st prize and a £100 2nd prize!
Friends and families of The Garth were very generous on the day and we had many pupils join us, including some past students and their parents!
FOGS managed to raise £566 in total which will go towards upgrading the existing light room, to a multi-sensory room, including some new portable sensory equipment.
Claire Moore, Head of School, said, “We had a fantastic Summer Fair this year, and it was really well attended. It was good to see staff, parents, and pupils, working together to make it happen. A massive thank you to FOGS, and everyone who came along and supported the day.”
