School’s novel way to raise cash

Matlock Bath Holy Trinity C of E Primary School will hold a book fair on Saturday October 15 at the town’s pavilion.

Children, parents and staff at the school have been busy collecting and donating a mountain of books, CDs and DVDs for the sale, which starts at noon.

All proceeds will go into a fund towards the cost of school trips, books and waterproof clothing for outdoor learning.

“Our parents are great at fundraising but being a small school it can be quite hard,” said headteacher Amanda Mee.

“We’re holding the book fair during the illuminations and on a firework night so that we can hopefully attract some of the visiting tourists and really boost our funds.” Everyone is invited and it is still possible to donate books, CDs and DVDs.
