FESTIVE fun and community spirit shone through at St Francis Primary's annual Christmas fete — which raised £3,000 for school funds.

Parents, teachers and Port Glasgow businesses teamed up with the pupils to produce a wonderful winter event which had a little bit of something for everyone.

Santa was joined this year by Buzz Lightyear, Dora the Explorer and Hello Kitty as scores of people turned out to enjoy the event.

Depute headteacher Margaret Kelly said: "It went really, really well and we reached a fantastic total — 100 per cent of which will be spent on the pupils for school trips and other things.

"We have a very active parent council and there is a great partnership with the staff, so we are able to do really good things together.

"The raffle prizes were excellent and I thank all of the local businesses who supported us.

"Without them we just couldn't do what we do."

Other attractions on the day included face painting, photos with Santa, a beat-the-goalie challenge and a Christmas crafts stall with only eco-friendly wares.

Depute head Margaret said: "When you have days like this you remember what it's all about.

"We have a really good community here with the parish and all the families.

"It's just a pleasure for everyone to be involved in events like this and enjoy days like this."
