Santa helps with school fundraiser
A parents and teachers group is celebrating a £2,000 fundraising total after just 12 weeks of work- thanks to a helping hand from Santa.
Staff at Great Gaddesden School can now fund future trips out and purchase much-needed computer equipment.
On top of cake sales, raffles and clothing collections, Friends of Great Gaddesden School (FOGGS) walked parents and staff alongside Santa’s sleigh through Berhamsted streets in December.
FOGGS vice-chairman Clare Rudd said: “It was such a fantastic evening. To see the faces of the children as Santa came past their door was just amazing.”
Group chairman Debbie Bayliss thanked Berkhamsted Lions who invited the group to participate in the collection. “£2,000 will make a real difference to our pupils. We are very proud,” she said.
