Time for the annual Prep School Charity Fair! Over 300 children, parents, friends and families enjoyed a fantastic afternoon in the winter sunshine, splatting the rat, enjoying a make-over, discovering their most compatible pet spider plant, buying Christmas gifts and sampling an abundance of cupcakes, waffles and delicious hot chocolate.

The children have spent several weeks debating, organising and planning their
own stalls. There were book stalls, toy stalls, a lucky dip, an unlucky dip and even
a bouncy castle. Fortfield Housemistress, Mrs Alice Gould said, “We chose to do a Nerf Gun shoot out. It was so much fun – the targets were suspended in the air and quite tricky to hit.”

Pupil, Brianna Brown, enthused, “I had a great time with all my friends. I decorated a gingerbread man (and ate him), visited the beauty parlour for a glittery make-over and sang very loudly on the karaoke. There were some wonderful Christmas
gifts, really
funny Christmas cards and heaps
and heaps of cake!”

Throughout the afternoon the Charity Fair
raised an accomplished £2505.22, which will
go to the Cheltenham Food Bank and Family
Space.
