Auction of promises

A PROMISE auction at Trinity Primary School in Portishead raised more than �200.

Parents, staff and friends donated services ranging from beauty treatments and osteopathy to gardening and French lessons. Students offered promises too, from washing up to tidying and cleaning.

Pupils transformed a classroom into an auction room before offering the lots to the highest bidders.

Scores of items and services were snapped up by pupils and their families during the after school fundraising event.
