This year’s PTA Summer Fayre at Holy Trinity School was once again a truly fantastic event, with everyone from the school and local community enjoying all ‘the fun of the fayre’ after it was officially opened by none-other than Batman, AKA the caped crusader and Holy Trinity teacher, Mr Chris Barth, on Saturday 21st June.

Visitors were treated to a plethora of traders’ stalls and outside activities as well as a falconry display and arena wrestling matches. Lots to do, see, enjoy, eat and win thanks to the generous prize donations from local people and companies amounting to over £1,000 worth of raffle prizes, with this year’s chosen charity KEMP for Kids benefitting from this truly community event.

PA Chair, Mrs Michelle Howles, said: “Once again thank you to the local community and stallholders for helping make the fayre such a spectacular success. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event which will directly benefit both our students and the KEMP for Kids charity.”

This year’s chosen Kidderminster based charity KEMP for KIDS, offers specialist care and support to patients, families and carers dealing with life limiting illness and bereavement. The aim of KEMP is to help families maintain their independence, by supporting them to adapt to changing abilities, so that they can live their lives to the full, for as long as possible.


Students, staff and open morning visitors at Kidderminster’s Holy Trinity International School (HTIS) enjoyed homemade cakes and a hot drink or two, helping raise £600 for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of this year’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.

Taking inspiration from sister IES schools from across the world, each of the four houses dressed in the typical dress of the country and decorated cakes in the national colours of Hungary, South Africa, South America and Britain.

Head student Chelsea Savoy said: “We really enjoyed taking part and helping support such a wonderful charity. Students, parents and staff sampled our many homemade cakes and sweets on sale in the senior school; raising an amazing £600 in just over two hours.

“We would like to thank everyone for attending our coffee morning and at the same time helping support Macmillan Cancer Support.”

Visiting families attending the school’s weekly Open Fridays, held between 8:45am to 11:30am, joined in buying and sampling the many cakes and sweets on offer.

Cure Leukaemia, BBC WM’s Red Alert Appeal, following a sale of fried dumplings and Island Delight patties at the Church of God of Prophecy in Birmingham, has raised over £300 for the charity.

With approximately 110 dumplings and patties sold, Bishop Aldred was overjoyed: “The response to my specially made dumplings and an Island Delight pattie for a donation was overwhelming.”

In addition to those from the local Church of God of Prophecy congregation, Bishop Aldred was delighted to welcome friends from all over Birmingham who responded following announcements on both the radio and social media.

“We completely sold out with many waiting in line!” added Bishop Aldred, who has already been requested to make more fried dumplings, but isn’t promising anything at this point as he said, “It was hard work!”

Bishop Joe, presenter of BBC WM’s Chatback programme, and his team were tasked with doing something a little zany to raise £100 for Cure Leukaemia, so he decided to sell fried dumplings made to his own secret recipe for a minimum price of £1, with Cleone Foods matching the offer with 100 donated patties from their Island Delight branded range.

Said Bishop ALdred: “Special thanks to Wade and Wilma for their superb help with frying the dumplings on the Saturday evening, and for allowing me to fry them at Cleone Foods, not to mention the accessories, bags and serviettes. Also a big thank you to Andy Bailey from Enterprise Data Systems (UK) Ltd for donating £100!”

Island Delight patties:  Cleone Foods’ Island Delight short crust and new flaky pastry patties are available in all major retailers including ASDA, Tesco, Morrisons, CO-OP and Sainsbury’s, as well as foodservice and independent retailers and distributors, with a series of store sampling sessions planned around the country to introduce consumers to the rich, warm and exotic flavours of the Caribbean.
