TCSoA Parent Council are thrilled to have kickstarted their fundraising efforts to the tune of £867.33 following the successful MarketPlace Shopping Evening last Thursday, September 24.

The 22 stallholders ranged from jewellery, skincare, gourmet foods, designer products, stationery and homeware - many of which were one-off unique handmade items.

Each stallholder donated a prize for the raffle drawn on the night.

Entry was £3, which included a glass of wine or elderflower cordial with nibbles dotted around the room.

A dedicated team of sixth formers supported the evening by helping keep the snacks topped up and serving the drinks. They even did the washing up - great job lads and lasses.

Special thanks to Penny Wither and Caron Ironside for putting in so much work to make this happen.
