Braving the rain to raise £2,000 at Whitstable primary school fair
TEACHERS braved the rain and wet sponges to help raise funds for pupils at a primary school's spring fair.
St Mary's Catholic Primary School's parents and friends association organised the event with fun stalls and informative visits from police officers and firefighters.
Year 6 teacher Chris Wright and his colleague in Year 4, Nick Bainborough, were placed in the stocks outdoors and youngsters paid to throw three wet sponges at them.
An "imaginary fruit machine" helped raise cash, with three children hiding inside boxes. Each held up a piece of fruit at random when a new contestant played. If all three fruits were the same, the contestant won a prize.

The fair, on Saturday, April 28, raised more than £2,000 for the school in Northdown Road, Whitstable.
Mr Wright said: "It was a fantastic day, despite the rain. It was the first time I had seen an imaginary fruit machine. It worked really well and raised a lot of money."
He added: "We would like to thank the PFA for its efforts. The parents and friends did really well, especially as the weather was so bad and we had to move things inside."
