      Our school is tiny but our best sellers are always the cake stall (100% profit) and tombola again 100% profit as everything is donated

      Well done on £2400, I'm sure it will make a difference for the school.

      We do a raffle and that makes quite a lot, along with a promises auction. Every family gets a couple of books of raffle tickets to sell with prizes from local businesses, because it's been going a while the contacts are already there, but I know this may be tricky to start with. It's also one less stall to man on the day. Last year we did a sit down tea tent with cakes and that was good along with a BBQ and bar. We are a small school (120 children) but the fundraising is good, a few smaller events throughout the year keep things ticking along but the fete is the big money spinner.

      When you are offended at any man's fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.

      They had facepainting at DD's school fair, that seemed to go down really well. They also had a stall with coloured sands on that you put into bottles, they did a choice of around 5 different bottles and a couple of necklace ones, and that stall was packed.

      Noonoo £2400 is still great. Maybe different school sizes was a factor?

      Cake stall, and teas and coffees

      Hog / lamb roast and BBQ but probably only because the meat is donated

      auction of promises

      raffle

      pony rides

      They made nearly £10,000 but I bet there's a lot of parents somewhere moaning about what a massive rip-off everything was.

      Cake stalls always make a fortune.

      Our school is tiny, 60 pupils, and we raise around £2000ish. Which is a lot per puril

      I donít know which stalls raise most money, but the busiest in our school fayres tend to be sweetie stalls (penny sweets), tatoo & face painting, welshcakes (cooked freshly in front of you - yummy!), any craft stalls where the kids make an item (badges/necklaces/frame decorating/biscuit decorating etc). anystalls where pesterpower is involved do well.

      TBH it depends on the socio economic mix of the school too. The small school in the affluent area in town makes three times as much as our school even thought we have twice as many children.
