Newmarket’s Laureate Primary School staged its annual summer fete on Saturday and raised nearly £3,000.
Displays from Newmarket School of Dance and majorettes provided the entertainment while young visitors were able to test their skills crossing an inflatable assault course.
The day was opened by children’s favourite, Peppa Pig, and attractions included raffles, stalls selling crafts and food and drink and a cake sale organised by school pupils.
Jordan Hogg, treasurer of the school’s PTA, which organised the event said: “We had wonderful weather with a lot of children from school and former pupils who came back to enjoy the day with us.
“They particularly enjoyed sponging the school’s chairman of governors Mr Parsley.”
The fete raised £2,957 towards the £5,000 it will cost to improve the Exning Road school’s playground.
A shoot a football through a hoop game held on the day raised an additional £125 for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
“We were pleased with the fact that everyone had a wonderful time,” said Mrs Hogg.
