School Eco Fair Raises Funds To Replace Equipment Destroyed In Fire
oed Eva Primary School’s annual eco fair has raised about £1000 to replace litter pickers, water butts and eco-equipment lost when fire destroyed part of the school in January.
Pupils from all years made gifts from recycled materials which they sold to parents.
There were also stalls selling homemade cakes and a recycling station where the children and their parents could recycle items such as batteries and clothes.
Jean Reardon, the school’s eco co-ordinator, said: “This has been a fantastic event and everyone in the school has taken part.
“We have a strong eco-friendly ethos at Coed Eva but the fire totally destroyed the nursery and infant school, and we lost lots of our equipment. The money raised from the eco-fair will going a long way to replacing much of what was lost.
“I would like to thanks all of the pupils, teachers and parents that help make this event such a success.”
