Presentation to Lakeside School

Thursday 8 November was quite a special day because it was the day we presented the 50th anniversary wall hanging to Lakeside School.

First of all we reminded the children of how the project got underway, rolling out the paper template that was prepared and first shown to the children in March.

Then the big moment – the finished article!

It was lovely to see the reaction from the children – lots of oohs and aahs and pointing out the bits that they had been involved in making.

Ths school council was then enlisted to run a competition – the children were invited to count or guess how many dragonflies were on the wall hanging.

We then took part in the school’s Christmas Craft Market to raise some more money for the school children in Lesotho, South Africa.

And we were thrilled when we realised that we had raised £150! Adding that to the money that we raised with an afternoon tea in September and numerous individual donations the total raised is now around £900!

We all agreed that we had a lovely day, made very welcome by everyone, treated to a lovely lunch and the whole day was finished off with a yummy supper, courtesy of Monica’s husband!
