The sudden closure of our schools due to the Covid-19 pandemic meant that the proposed Food Fair at James Peacock School, scheduled for late March, had to be cancelled. As usual, a major part of this fundraising event was set to be the popular annual raffle.
However, as tickets were already on sale before the school closed, it was decided that the raffle should go ahead. With the help of The Bottle Top on the High Street, ticket sales continued and we raised a total of £239.
On Saturday 29th March, the day of the cancelled Food Fair, Rushcliffe Borough Councillor, Jennifer Walker very kindly conducted the draw at her home, witnessed by her family.
On behalf of the school, the Friends’ committee would like to thank everyone who supported the raffle by buying tickets. We’d also like to say a huge “Thank you” to the local businesses and individuals who donated prizes.
