We were delighted to host the Christmas Fun Day on Saturday, on behalf of the 1st Marske & New Marske Scouts, who are raising funds for the World Scout Jamboree in the United States in 2019, where several students who attend Bydales will be representing the UK. The event was officially opened by our Chair of Governors, Mrs Taylor at 11am and much fun was had by all!
Visitors could meet Father Christmas, partake of the climbing wall, browse the Christmas craft stalls, buy Christmas sweets and Christmas Gifts, hook a duck and much more! There were also stands by PartyLite, BodyShop, Jewellery as well as refreshments and a tombola,
Francesca Marshall, one of the organisers said "It was a well planned, hectic yet successful day. Lots of people attended and feedback, including social media, was very positive. The fun day managed to raise around £1000, which is a great start towards reaching the £26000 target to get the selected Scouts to West Virginia in 2019. We have several more events planned already for the New Year and have a lot more ideas for other events throughout 2018."
Well done everyone!
