PTA Summer Fair 2019 Update


Saturday 29th June was the day of our annual Summer Fair and what an absolutely amazing day it was! We had pony rides, balloon pinata, a bouncy castle & a bouncy assault course, candy floss, BBQ, raffle & tombola, refreshments including the licensed bar, face painting tattoos and a nail bar and so many other stalls, not forgetting our very own Mrs Stillwell in the stocks for 5 minutes, which proved very popular with children and adults!!! 


A colossal £3,356.42 was raised, which is our biggest total to date!!! This included another generous donation of two fabulous Y-not tickets! 

All of the members of the PTA couldn’t be more thrilled of this record breaking amount. 

We will be posting on here shortly where the money is going..........


Thank you to everyone who got involved and gave up their time organising and helping us. For all the donations of cakes & teddies, for the many hundreds of raffle tickets sold and not to mention the countless hours spent in the background by our dedicated PTA members helping with planning to make sure all the children, families and friends of Churchtown had a fantastic day.


We really hope to see you all again next year and thanks a million for your continued support – we couldn’t do it without you all.
