Last month we were delighted to receive a letter from Jen Hoddinott, from Friends of Carswell School, after our donation of a brand-new iPad was raffled as the top prize at their summer fete this year.
Situated in Abingdon Oxfordshire (our home town), Carswell Community Primary School does some fantastic work with young people in our town, a cause which we have been happy to support over the last few years.
The Summer Fair is a popular local annual event, which attracts children and their families along with local community members to enjoy an afternoon full of stalls, performances and fun – made special this year with the wonderful sunshine.
We’re sure the prizewinner will get much enjoyment from the iPad – and the school will benefit from the important money raised.
Ms Hoddinott said that “the 2018 Fair was a great success which raised nearly £3,000 of essential funds to help improve the school's facilities and learning resources. Thank you again for your generosity from everyone at Carswell Primary School."
In other community news, our Rugby team, Wheatley RUFC, who we sponsor, begin their pre-season work – with their next friendly, against Crowthorne, arranged for Saturday September 1.
