TRADERS were out in force to support a school’s Christmas fair.

Stamford High School held its annual event on Saturday. Plenty of people attended throughout the day and donated £250 on the door.

The money will go to Stamford youth group Teenzone.

Visitors could browse through a variety of stalls including crafts, Fairtrade, wood turning, jewellery, homemade cakes and preserves and plants.

Many traders from the Stamford area had their own stalls and a number donated raffle prizes, including Cook, the Tobie Norris and the Fine Food Store.

Two pupils ran a handmade jewellery stall to raise money for a charity helping the people of Chernobyl.

The fair was organised by the school’s parent association. Chairman Helen Gibbons said: “The raffle did really well and we had a steady influx of people through the door.

“We were lucky with the weather unlike last year when it snowed.”
