PTA Christmas Fayre

Thank you to everyone who came along to support our PTA Christmas Fayre – it was a great success!

It was a great family event with a magical Santa’s Grotto which was a real hit with the kids, and a Secret Santa Room where children could secretly buy and wrap a present for their loved ones – the children really loved this too! We had a great selection of gift and craft stalls including Tropic Skincare, The Book People, Flamingo Paperie cards, designer perfume with Sorelle, hand knitted items from Crafty Wools, handmade bows with Emily Lockyer and locally made honey from beekeeper Johanna Mills. We had tombolas, homemade cakes, biscuit decorating, glitter tattoos with Sparkle Art Face Painting and Christmas garlands with Ericka Golding. The playground was filled with real Nordmann Fir Christmas trees thanks to Christmas Trees Direct and we served refreshments all evening thanks to generous donations from Papa John’s Pizza in Christchurch, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Warburtons.

Our Christmas raffle was a huge success and raffle winners were delighted with their prizes. Raffle prizes were very kindly donated by The Jetty; Hoburne Brasserie 1912 restaurant, Tropic Skincare, Longdown Activity Farm, Farmer Palmer’s, the Regent Centre, Swanage Railway, BH Live, Lifestyle Active, Moors Valley, Beauty Rediscovered, Monkey Madness, Beales and Marks and Spencer.

Thank you to our very hardworking PTA who devoted a lot of their time to make this a fantastic event; to our St Joseph’s families who donated generously, gave their time to work with the children and helped on the night; and to the children who worked hard making decorations for the event. Thanks also to Stewarts Garden Centre and John Cribb for donating decorations and lights.

We raised an amazing £1,672 which will be used to enrich our children’s school journey. We hope you enjoy the pictures of our event.
