Time for an elfie? St Paul’s School’s Christmas Fair raises £10k

Every penny of this goes back to funding activities and educational experiences for the children

30 November, 2017 — By Steve Barnett

THERE were plenty of reasons to smile for an “elfie” on Saturday after a primary school in Primrose Hill raised thousands of pounds at its Christmas Fair.

Countless crowds flocked to St Paul’s School in Elsworthy Road to enjoy their much-loved seasonal showpiece. There were all the festive favourites, including carol singing, mulled wine and the chance to browse a whole host of stalls looking for Christmas presents and stocking fillers.

There was also the chance to visit Santa in his grotto, and even take a picture with one of his hard-working elves.

Alex Smith from the Friends of St Paul’s Association said she was delighted with how well-support the event was.

“The fair was a huge success and raised in excess of £10,000,” she said. “Every penny of this goes back to funding activities and educational experiences for the children, from science week to theatre workshops, hatching chicks to trips to the seaside. We would like to thank everyone for supporting us – over 80 businesses supported this year’s fair and, of course, all those who came along to enjoy the entertainment.”
