£4,000 raised at Cookham Rise Primary summer fun day

Emma Billingham

The sun came out to play on Sunday in time for the Cookham Rise Primary School summer fete.

The students learned the steel drums, which they performed for visitors, as well as making the most of various stalls and games.

The adults battled over the silent auction, all of which went towards raising a total of £4,000 which will be spent on equipment and educational experiences.

Sarah Rodi, from the school’s PTA, said: “The sun stayed out for us all day and we all had a wonderful time. The kids loved Dave the Disco and the Scratch Samba band.

“The hula hoop contest and Beat the Goalie competition went down a storm.

“The kids enjoyed the facepainting and tattoos by Riva, all the traditional stalls, and the burgers and sausages on the barbecue from Cowderys Butchers were delicious. There was a bidding war on the silent auction, especially for the private wine tasting at the Old Butchers Wine Cellar and for the holiday in Cannes.”
