A FLINTSHIRE primary school is inviting the local community to come and support their Macmillan event on Friday (October 25).

Westwood Community Primary School in Buckley is hosting its sixth annual Macmillan event as the school continues to support the cancer charity.

Hot drinks and cakes will be sold at the afternoon gathering in the school’s main hall, while children will also be setting up various stalls – including fortune telling - to raise further money.

Information and data gathered from the event will then be used in school lessons for the children to work on a range of mathematical skills.

Mrs Jayne Williams, Headteacher at Westwood Community Primary School, said: “It all started off a few years ago as a project that we linked to our curriculum by having children arguing why certain charities should be supported.

“Now, this will be our sixth annual Macmillan event. The children will be running their own stalls – which can be anything from selling cakes to fortune telling.

“Once again, it’s open to the whole community and we hope the people of Buckley can come down.

“The most we’ve raised is just under £700, so we’ll be hoping to at least match that, if not better it. Then we’ll link everything we do to our maths work by analysing the profits the children make on their stalls, counting money, and a range of other things.

“Because we’re called Westwood Community Primary, I want us to be right in the heart of Buckley and be productive in the community.”

The sixth annual Macmillan event at Westwood Community Primary School in Buckley will take place in the school’s hall between 2.00pm and 3.30pm on Friday, October 25.

The event also follows on from the school’s sixth annual litter pick, which saw a number of students and volunteers clear various areas around Buckley.
