A record-breaking £8,908.81 was raised in four hours at Billingshurst Primary School’s Summer Fun Day held held last weekend.

Helen Williamson, the headteacher, said, “We are absolutely delighted with the total that has been raised and none of this would be possible without the vision, commitment and hard work of the BPSCA, our Community Association.”

She added:“The money has supported school visits in each year group as well as provided significant funds for the development of the grounds.”

There was an array of traditional stalls as well as many attractions including Go Karts and a 18ft mega slide.

A ‘Where’s Wally’ stall sparked particular interest from the children.

They had to guess the number of Wallies on a car covered with copies of a group photo of dressed-up teachers.

There were children performances throughout the day as well as a fencing display from the Breakfast Fencing Club run by South Coast Sports.

The school has expressed thanks to all their sponsors, advertisers and families for their support.
