Amazing £1100 raised for 'Tom's Trust' charity
Sunday 10th December was the day planned for the 'Friends of CIS' Christmas Fair. Weeks of planning, by both the school and a committee of parent volunteers, were to culminate in a celebration of Christmas from around the world and provide the whole school community the opportunity to come together and share festive greetings, which also having a lot of fun and raising money for the school’s chosen charity, 'Tom’s Trust'.
However, Sunday the 10th arrived and it snowed and snowed and snowed and it soon became apparent that the roads to The Temple, were treacherous and it would not be safe for the event to go ahead.
Not to be beaten, and to prevent everyone’s hard work going to waste, a reduced fair was run at The Temple after the Nativity Play on Monday and it was fantastic. The true community spirt of CIS was demonstrated by everyone just lending a hand, taking part in the fun and raising an amazing amount for Tom’s Trust, the school total is now over £1,100!!! Thank you to everyone who supported the event.
