School’s Charity Summer Fair

Leicester High School for Girls raised £890 for the Kibworth based, Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital at its Junior Summer Fair, a well-attended event that brought together students, families, and members of the community.

The fair featured various attractions, including tombola and a raffle with prizes such as electric toothbrushes, various hampers overflowing with goodies, teeth whitening and a charming handmade quilt. Additionally, one enterprising pupil took it upon themselves to create stylish scrunchies to sell at the fair, adding a trendy touch to the fundraising efforts.

There was a baking contest with a wildlife theme, judged by Leicester High School for Girls’ Catering Manager, Andy James. The creations, as delicious as they were artistic, were then sold to visitors.

Moreover, Lower School students’ artwork featuring a wildlife theme was on display. Judged by the Head of Lower School, these creative masterpieces showcased the talent of the school’s budding artists.

Attendees enjoyed an Afternoon Tea followed by performances including Miss Loomes’ Ballet’s rendition of ‘Surfin USA‘ and a Maypole Dance by Year 1 and 2.

A highlight of the event was a sneak peek into the school’s upcoming production, “Pantastic”, presented by talented Year 3-5 students.

Sophie Neuberg, Form 1 teacher and chief organiser said, “It was a fantastic event, made all the more special by the presence of so many families. Thank you so much for all the support. particularly from those who generously donated prizes.”
