BISM Winter Fair 2018
Christmas carols, howls of laughter and festive cheer welcomed in our annual BISM Winter fair on Friday 14th December 2018 raising money for our chosen charity Hogar Betania.
There were plenty of stalls and games to delight parents and students alike with old favourites like beer pong and festive glitter tattoos plus new additions like Bingo.
Tino the Magician from Kids Parties Spain entertained us with his magical talents and ensured all the children were enthralled with his tricks and turns. New for 2018 we were treated to to an appearance from the world famous Bob Bolton from Bradford, Bingo caller extraordinaire who, accompanied by Bruce on the organ, called several lively games down in the canteen. We hope this will become an annual event and look forward to welcoming Bob back for many years to come.
Ceramics by Messy Monsters joined us once again and the children had the chance to prove their artistic talents by painting some beautiful ceramics - perfect as homemade Christmas gifts! Mrs Rutherford´s tattoo stall was also extremely popular and had children queuing up to get one of her fantastic tattoos. Singing Santa was a great hit belting out Christmas classics to entertain us all - everyone was incredibly impressed with his vocal talents, well done Santa and thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to fit us in! Anna and friends helped raise over 400 euros running the cake and Russian food stall - well done ladies!
Mel and Steph helped spread more than a little Xmas cheer on the bar, knocking out the electrics with the mulled wine on the hot plate ... but fear not Bonnie came to the rescue and kept the wine hot and flowing on the BBQ for the duration!
A special shout out must go to Ava in Year 4 and Aggie in Year 7 who showed some real entrepreneurial spirit with their pop up stall selling homemade slime, stockings, crispie cakes and reindeer food which raised 52 euros for charity. Well done girls- next step ´Dragon´s Den´.
All in all a fantastic time was had by everyone raising a massive €1550 for Hogar Betania. Plenty of food, drinks, entertainment and good friends raising money for a worthy cause was a great way to call in the festive season. A massive thank you to all who participated and made it such an enjoyable day!
