The Friends of Ely St John’s Primary School raised more than £1,000 with a spring fete and car boot sale, on Saturday.

Hundreds of people turned out at the school to enjoy a feast of fun that included stalls, games, facepainting, refreshments, uniform sale and bouncy castles.

There was also a police car and fire engine for the children to enjoy as well as some craft stalls. In all, the event raised £1,200 for school funds.

Sam Prigg, who helped organise the event, said: “We were really chuffed with the amount raised especially as the weather wasn’t in our favour on the day.

“There were hundreds of people there and we’d like to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer to help with the events we run during the year.”

Funds raised will be put towards some new outdoor activities for pupils.
