Local businesses pull together to make Christmas fair a huge success

Wed 09 Dec 2015

A Worthing school has thanked local businesses for helping to make its Christmas fair a great success.

Springfield Infant and Nursery School hosted its festive fete last Friday (December 4th), with Brighton and Hove Albion mascot Gully on hand to switch on its Christmas lights.

Local property specialist Leaders was one of the companies supporting the event, with negotiator Katie Barnes and administrator Holly Revell taking time out of their schedule to run a glitter tattoos stall.

Adam Hills, branch manager at Leaders in Worthing, recently presented the school with a cheque to help fund the seasonal lighting and was delighted the branch could help the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) with its plans.

He says: “A huge amount of hard work goes into ensuring events such as Springfield’s Christmas fair run smoothly and successfully, so we were only too pleased to help.

“Supporting our local community has always been a priority and we look forward to getting involved in similar events and helping more good causes in and around Worthing in 2016.”

Richenda Solomon, head of the PTA and organiser of the Christmas fair, says: “The whole event was a tremendous success, but without the support of local businesses like Leaders we wouldn’t be able to hold it.

“Recruiting volunteers is a particularly difficult aspect of running the fair, so when Leaders offered to give up their valuable time to man one of the stalls we were extremely grateful. We simply couldn’t have had better help than Katie and Holly who came with big smiles, lots of enthusiasm and a will to get involved.”

Leaders is based at 53 Chapel Road in Worthing. Contact the branch today for advice on all aspects of selling, letting, buying or renting.
