A fun day will take place this weekend to raise vital funds for the fire ravaged St Mary’s Catholic Technology College in Leyland.
The event marks the end of the first week of term for the pupils after the blaze ripped through the school and put classes on hold.
The fun day, which is to take place at the playing field in Centurian Way, Farington, is the first major fundraising event organised by Friends of St Mary’s Catholic Technology College.
Sunday September 22 will see stalls, bands, dancers, and live music on the field.
There will also be a bouncy castle, owl display, pony rides, electric go-karts and teachers in the stocks.
The event takes place from 12 - 5pm.
This week has seen pupils return to classes in a temporary school set up in Ribbleton. The blaze on September 1 destroyed more than 60 per cent of the school in Royal Avenue and pupils were unable to return for the autumn term for two weeks.
It is now hoped year 7 and 11 pupils will return to the Royal Avenue site in the coming weeks with the rest of the school being brought back to Leyland for the start of the Spring term.
The Friends of St Marys Catholic Technology College is a PTA which will be arranging fundraising events to support the school through the difficult times ahead.
