An Auction of Promises to raise money for Filleigh Primary School was a huge success. The auction, organised by the school's Parents and Teachers Association and held at Filleigh Village Hall, raised \u00A32,500. "We are thrilled to have raised so much at this event," said PTA chairman Donna Norden. "It was a fabulous evening which I hope everyone enjoyed as much as we did." "We'd like to say a big thank you to all the local businesses, individuals and parents who donated items for the auction. We were delighted to get such great support from the local community. "We'd also like to say a big thank you to our auctioneer, David Greatwood, who did such a good job on the night, and also to all the people who came to the event and spent money at the auction."All the funds raised at the event will be used by Filleigh Primary School. The money will be spent on books, educational projects, school trips and swimming lessons.
