Vistry, which is building new homes under the Linden Homes brand at its Avisford Grange location in Walberton, gave £250 to Walberton and Binsted CE Primary School to help with the costs of the disco-themed event, which included a bouncy inflatable course.

The fair took place last month and also included activities such as a fun run, tombola, hook a duck and barbecue. With hundreds of students and parents in attendance, more than £4,500 was raised in total.

Vicky Lutyens, secretary of Walberton and Binsted Parents and Teachers Association, said: “The proceeds will go towards an outdoor learning area which is really important to the children. The outdoor structure will be great to provide the children with a visual learning experience that aligns with their topics of study.”
