Queensferry High School Parent Staff Association held a very succesful Christmas fayre, departing from the usual school-run stalls and ‘let’ table space to local small businesses and individuals.
The fayre raised £1600 so school departments can now bid for assistance for specific projects from the PSA, whose funds have been earmarked for extra-curricular school events and field trips.
More than 30 stalls were sold, including the school’s own Kenya group, who were raising funds by selling cakes, running a guess the weight of the cake, and other raffles. The handcraft club sold their own Christmas style handmade gifts, which were well received.
Joint chair of the PSA, Karen Leslie said: “This year’s fayre managed to surpass what we raised last year and was a huge success.
“We had a great crowd turn out to support us, which was wonderful to see, as there’s a fair bit of work goes into the organisation behind the day.
“I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone who was involved in the event.”
Liz Martin, one of the event organisers, said: “This year’s fayre was very succesful and we managed to raise more than ever before.
“In the four years we’ve run the Christmas fayre, it’s got better year-on-year.
“There was excellent feedback from both the stallholders and guests alike and the whole thing just had a nice festive feel to it.”
