ORGANISERS of a school fayre skated their way to success by raising more than £2,000 at their Christmas event.

The Friends of Feckenham First School festive day generated £2,220 - more than double the previous total recorded by the group.

The event featured a mobile ice rink sponsored by companies in the area, as well as a tombola, raffle and stalls.

A spokeswoman for the committee said: “Organisers of the event aimed for a German market feel and they didn’t disappoint with outside stalls beautifully lit by thousands of fairy lights. As well as enjoying the skating, children could also take a starring role in a Living Nativity as Mary or Joseph, complete with a real donkey.”

Headteacher Jeannette Little added: “Despite the cold but clear day, everyone got into the Christmas spirit and had a great time. Father Christmas was a real hit as were our young people singing to the crowds.”
