"It is a big part of our ethos to instill in the children a desire to be caring and giving. It is wonderful that our pupils participate with such enthusiasm in all the charity work we do here."
A North Somerset school is hosting a car boot and table-top sale to raise money for a school in Africa.
Fairfield School in Backwell has linked with the Macalpine School in the Bandawe region of Malawi and are holding a series of events, in association with the charity
Hooke Court in Malawi, to support the school and provide its pupils with books, pencils and other learning resources.
The charity event will take place on Saturday 16 November when the school is also holding an open day for families wishing to look around.
Fairfield School headmistress, Lesley Barton, said: “We are so excited to be sponsoring the Macalpine School in Malawi and we’re hoping that our car boot sale will
generate some much-needed funds for new educational resources at the school.
“We are so fortunate here at Fairfield to have the very best resources at our fingertips to teach and encourage our pupils but we know that others aren’t so
fortunate. It is a big part of our ethos to instil in the children a desire to be caring and giving. It is wonderful that our pupils participate with such enthusiasm in all
the charity work we do here.
“We’re hoping many people take this opportunity to not only support a wonderful cause but also to have a big clear out of unwanted items just before Christmas!”
Visitors to the event can also enjoy hot dogs, cakes, waffles and hot and cold refreshments on the day. Entry will cost 50p per person or £10 to take a table/car boot
Lesley continued: “The car boot sale will take place on the same day as our open event which is a great opportunity for interested parents to take a look around our
school, meet with teachers and pupils and get a sense of our culture.”
The open event will run from 10am-12pm on 16 November with the car boot sale running from 12pm-3pm.
