Up Up and Away with Chas!
The pupils, staff and parents of Skerton St Luke’s CE Primary School had much to smile about in the sunshine on Tuesday afternoon. The Friends of St Luke’s have worked tirelessly hosting many fundraising events to purchase equipment for an adventure playground area, and along with a successful National Lottery Fund bid, local artist Chas Jacobs was thrilled to officially open the equipment.

To mark the celebration a multitude of colourful balloons were realised to start the Great Balloon Adventure Race, raising £100 for the School Council’s charity, JDRF Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The pupils also took part in an art competition creating pictures of the balloon race in Chas Jacobs’ style.

The School Council would like to ask if anyone should find a balloon tag that they follow the instructions and log onto the school website, as the pupils are eager to see how far their balloons have travelled. The councillors would also like to thank Chas Jacobs for doing the honours and Robinsons Florists of Bare Village for the balloon hire equipment.
