A spokesman for the association said: "[We were] delighted to have been supported by Stansted Airport passenger community fund for the event and express a huge 'thank you' to them for their support."

Stalls at the event included a barbecue licensed Bar, bounce zone, tombola, raffle, tea and cakes, and even 'splat the teacher'

The event raised £2,700, which will go towards development of the school playground.
