GALLERY: School gets a helping hand from Olympic themed summer fair

LAUGHING, smiling, determined fund raisers helped to raise around �1,000 to benefit a March school.

Friends of All Saints held an Olympic themed summer fair on Saturday and pulled in the crowds- and the cash.

“It was a great community event,” said Tanya Roberts, vice chair of the Friends of All Saints.

“It’s an annual event but this year we decided to make it even more of a community event,” she said.

“It was definitely one of our better fund raisers and everyone is delighted.”

“We’re a small group of about eight mums and one dad- and he’s not only the chairman but also my husband Paul,” she added.
