A rugby-themed autumn fair has raised more than £7,000 for Clewer Green First School.
The annual fair was held on Saturday and to celebrate the start of the Rugby World Cup Windsor-based Scrumys was on hand with rugby activities and to offer the chance to meet their mascot Mr Scrumbles.
New for this year’s fair was the opportunity to tour a real army Panther armoured vehicle, a visit from Frozen’s Elsa, go-carts and a hair-braiding stall.
The fair made a £7,400 profit, which will go towards projects at the school in Hatch Lane.
A portion of the money raised will also go towards building an outdoor classroom.
Sharon Norman, co-chair of Friends of Clewer Green, said: “The fair was absolutely brilliant and the profit was once again up on the previous year. We are delighted.
“The army vehicles were a hit with the children and The Windsor Boys' School upper school big band played for us and were amazing again.”
