Jubilee fundraiser

A GROUP of parents have stepped up to ensure children at their village primary school can have a party to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.

Pressure on resources meant youngsters at William Marshall Primary School in Welney might miss out on celebrating the Queen’s landmark anniversary.

So parents came together to organise a fundraising event that will hopefully raise enough cash for a party. They are also hoping the children will be able to receive a Diamond Jubilee medal and goody bag of memorabilia.

The event is a bingo and raffle evening on Friday, May 11 at Welney Parish Hall, Bedford Bank. Doors open at 6.30pm with eyes down at 7pm. All welcome.

Some prizes have already been donated but businesses that would like to help should contact the school on 01354-610212.
