A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone for supporting our Fair and Raffle. We were blown away by the generosity of local businesses and stallholders supplying prizes for our 20 prizes & hampers.

Another very successful joint event between Friends of SWGS and the BWS Parents' Association.  Footfall was greater than previous years and we had a fabulous atmosphere with over 50 stalls, outstanding music performances from BWS & SWGS music departments and Salisbury Rock Choir - a new community addition this year. Over 50% of Stallholders returned from previous years and all were extremely happy with the event with record sales. We were so grateful to the higher number of Parent and student volunteers - the success is all down to the number who get involved. Chris Child ran his Second-hand book stall with his incredible team of volunteers, adding over £200 to the total. Across all the activities - café, stallholders contributions, donations, tombola's, games and raffle we have raised over £6,000. The Raffle alone raised almost £3000 towards the schools. This means there will be £3,000 each towards each of the school fundraisers - for BWS this is their Minibus fund.

SAVE THE DATE - we will be back on Saturday 23 November 2024 - thank you for your ongoing support!

Many thanks
