Wisbech Grammar School’s record-breaking harvest fair raises �1,800 for charity

MORE than �1,800 was raised for charity at a record-breaking harvest fair at Wisbech Grammar School.

The heroic effort will see �1,760 donated to Help for Heroes and a further �66 donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Students had their faces painted, sold a range of delicious food and completed a ‘walnut challenge’ - where nuts had to be spooned into an upturned flower pot - during the celebrations.

The school stage was covered in fruit, flowers and produce, which were brought in by the children for the harvest assembly. This was then distributed by volunteers to the Salvation Army, the Rosmini Centre, St Augustine’s day centre and Edina Court.

Jan Wildman, charities co-ordinator, said: “I was absolutely thrilled with the wonderful display of produce for our harvest assembly and very pleased to be able to distribute those gifts to the needy in Wisbech.

“We are also delighted to be sending a record amount for the Wisbech Grammar School harvest fair to Help for Heroes.”
