School Summer Fayre raises money for Great North Children’s Hospital

A school summer fayre held at Royal Grammar School Newcastle has raised £185 for The Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Donations help the hospital keep pace with continual developments in medical equipment and treatment techniques, as well as providing a more welcoming and comfortable environment for children, teenagers, their families and carers.

Pupils Hannah, Lola, Anna, Meghna and Pranay organised the summer fayre, setting up stalls selling handmade jewellery, popcorn and cakes, with all proceeds going to The Great North Children’s Hospital.

Last week, they visited hospital mascot ‘Hope’ the elephant in Tynemouth, which is part of the Great North Elmer Parade, and even got to meet fellow mascot Fudge as a thank you for their hard work.

Megnha, aged 11 said: “I made all of the jewellery for the stall with my mum, everyone loved it and we sold a lot. We have really enjoyed organising the fayre and it has been so much fun meeting Fudge and Hope!”
