School fund-raising for trip to the panto
A drop in numbers has meant St Mary's C of E Middle School at Belford has been unable to put on its usual production, which is also its biggest fund-raising event of the year. So the school has decided to take the pupils to a panto at Newcastle Theatre Royal instead.
It is busy raising money for this, as well as other activities, and has also applied to the local community group for a donation. So far it has had a Hallowe’en fancy dress day and a cake sale, which was a huge success.
The next event is a Christmas fair on December 15, to which the whole community is invited, and there’s also a raffle. Tickets from the school.
