Hard work from supporters of a primary school has raised ‘invaluable’ cash to support students’ studies.
Portishead Primary Friends of School (PPFOS) has announced its efforts over the 2018/19 academic year raised £17,871.
The money was collected from a series of successful fundraisers, and has funded the school's Anti-Bullying Week, the completion of the school library, forest school resources and much more.
Richard Rioradan, headteacher, said "It is no secret that schools have come under a huge amount of financial pressure and our school has not escaped the harsh realities of what this means on the ground.
"The money PPFOS raises has become an invaluable source of income to us and makes a very critical difference to what we are able to offer."
