Local baby shop raises �350 for infant school
When The Baby Store decided to raise money for Christchurch Infant School, they got their thinking caps on and decided to do something a little bit different. The store was emptied of all stock, and turned into a carnival games extravaganza. The store managed to raise over �350, which they donated in books to the local school.
The store’s owners, Joanna Holburn and Carla Antonie, and their five employees were dressed up in costume for the whole day, and hosted traditional games such as Hook A Duck, Basketball and Balls In A Bucket to name a few.
