A mechanical bull, hobby horse racing and barn dancing were among the activities at Radwinter Primary School’s Wild West-themed summer fundraiser on Saturday (June 25).

More than 300 people attended RadWest, which featured live music from the Steeple Ceilidh Band as well as a licensed bar and barbecue.

Last year’s RadFest event raised £3,000 for the school and the money was used to buy a Clevertouch interactive screen and sound system for the school hall.

Organisers are hoping to equal that amount from the weekend’s event and are looking to purchase another Clevertouch interactive screen for a classroom.

Lynda Henderson, office manager at the school, said: “It was a great day, which was fun for all the family. The hobby horse racing was very popular and we managed to dodge the showers for most of the day.

“The Clevertouch screens cost around £2,000 and we hope to have raised enough for another one.”
