We donated a very special hamper to our friends at Market Harborough CE Academy for their Virtual Christmas Raffle and Quiz.
An event which would usually take place at the Academy and be full of Christmas cheer was taken online for the first time but that didn’t dampen the spirit.
Andrew Reeves, PFTA Chair at Market Harborough CE Academy, reached out to local businesses, including Taylor Wimpey to ask for their support.
Andrew said: “This year has been particularly difficult due to the pandemic. The PTFA’s summer fair, cinema nights and cake sales all had to be cancelled and unfortunately we haven’t been able to raise as much funding as we usually would. Not only that, but our events bring people together, children make new friends and parents have a chance to share experiences.
“We reached out to local businesses to support this year’s Christmas Raffle and Quiz and were taken aback by how many have answered our call. The hamper from Taylor Wimpey was gratefully received and I hope the lucky winner enjoys it this Christmas.”
