29595200_15259008070_r

Saturday 9th June 2018 11.00am-3.00pm

London Fields Streets and Estates will be transformed into a huge ‘Car Boot Sale’ for the day with stall and events run by Local residents to raise funds in support of Queensbridge School.

Wonder the Map Trail and find a Treasure or a Bargain: vintage items and clothes, quality jumble, tea parties, cakes, garden stalls, play streets, kid’s toys, treasures and anything that you don’t want that someone else might need. Recycle and reuse!

Please go to the website (Link Below) for details. The online map has a detailed list of stalls so far.

The jumble trail concept is to have a huge ‘car boot sale’ on our streets. The idea is to have a mini ‘shop’ in your garden or at the front of your house selling bric-a-brac, toys, vintage clothes, cakes, artwork, craft, or whatever you like. Everyone is encouraged to walk around the trail, meeting neighbours, buying, socialising and having fun! 

On the day, there is a ‘Hackney Streets Play’ day on Albion Drive, so half of the street will be closed to cars and kids can play and run around.

In Aid of : Queensbridge Primary School

Every single pupil at Queens bridge Primary School stands to loose around £400 in funding during the next academic year due to government cuts.

Children are the future and deserve the very best education. The Queensbridge staff are inspirationally brilliant and create magic with the resources at their disposal. They need our help to go some way in plugging the shortfall in their budget. 

With your help they are aiming to raise money to fund supplies and equipment. Anything they can raise will benefit the whole school.

All funds will be administered by the Queensbridge PTA. 

They have recently funded a range of exciting projects – school & theatre trips, in-school events such as theatre and science visits, purchases of music, art and play equipment and organised community events to strengthen the links between the entire school community. 

This has only been possibly because of the Amazing effort, activity and generosity of parents/carers/teachers/pupils and families.

Please help them do more. The more they raise the more they can do! Donate below.
