EXCEPTIONAL teamwork, fun, friendship and community spirit shone through at a Piccadilly Fun Day which raised a whopping £4,000.

Staged at Our Lady’s School, the popular event was co-ordinated by members of the Catholic church situated on Brooklyn Road and the Friends of the school group, led by headteacher Pauline Lynch.

Everyone pulled together and there was something to suit all tastes with all manner of stalls, competitions, games and entertainment for those attending to enjoy.

Jamaican food, bric-a-brac, inflatables, a tuck shop, wheel of fortune, barbecue, bottle tombola, treasure trail, face painting, hook-a-duck, arts and crafts and support from the Nottingham Fire Service, helped to make the Bulwell community event a big success.

“Fair weather played its part and a brilliant show of teamwork and local support was most encouraging,” said Mrs Lynch.”Half of the money raised will go to the church while the school’s share will be used to benefit our children in their education.

“I would like to offer my sincere thanks to all those who helped on the day, those who spent weeks in planning and preparations and most importantly people in the local community who supported us.”
