Santa visits Wisbech primary school as Christmas Fair raises almost �900

SANTA set up his grotto in a Wisbech primary school as a memorable Christmas Fair raised almost �900.

Parents and children filled the classrooms of Orchards Primary School for the Fair, which boasted a host of stalls and activities.

Youngsters played ‘hook a duck’, ‘play your cards right’ and ‘frog hoopla’ before visiting Santa and his winter helpers.

Cakes and refreshments were served and a Christmas raffle boosted the fundraising total, with prizes donated by Fenland businesses.

The school thanked all the guests and volunteers who helped raise the final total of �890, calling the event a “huge success”.
