Friends of St Oscar Romero Catholic School celebrates after receiving £5426 in National Lottery fund

Friends of St Oscar Romero Catholic School based in Goring, Worthing is celebrating today
after being awarded over £5,000 in funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the
largest funder of community activity in the UK.
Friends of St Oscar Romero Catholic School will use their funding to support this year’s
summer fair to be held at St Oscar Romero Catholic School in Goring, Worthing on Saturday
9th July between 12pm and 4pm.

The fair, which promises to be the best yet, has a formidable line up of entertainment not
only from the amazingly talented students at St Oscar Romero School, but also displays by
The Extreme Mountain Bike Show and Huxley’s Birds of Prey. In addition to an afternoon of
outstanding entertainment there will a wide range of games and rides to enjoy and a
fabulous selection of stalls some managed by students building on their entrepreneurial
skills as they sell products that they have made or grown as well as a wonderful selection of
stalls run by local businesses.

The Summer Fair is open to the whole community to attend. The Friends of Romero
recognise that events of recent years have increased social isolation and wanted to host a
fair full of fun and excitement for families and children of all ages, as well as people who
perhaps might not ordinarily come into contact with the school where they could come
together for a truly memorable event.

National Lottery players raise over £30 million a week for good causes across the UK. The
National Lottery Community Fund distributes a share of this to projects to support people
and communities to prosper and thrive.

Natalie Luke, Treasurer for the Friends of Romero Registered Charity said: “Thanks to
National Lottery players, this grant means that we can include a wide range of games and
shows that we would otherwise not have been able to afford. As a registered charity this
means that we can continue to raise funds in support of St Oscar Romero Catholic School and
to enhance the learning and development of students at the school This will bring a big
difference to the school and students alike.
Mr Peter Byrne, Headteacher for St Oscar Romero Catholic school said: "I would like to
say a huge thank you to our Friends of Romero; they are a dedicated team of parents and
friends of the school who work tirelessly to fundraise for our students. Our summer fair is
always a highlight of the year and I warmly invite everyone in our community to join us for
what will be a fantastic day."
During the pandemic, in 2020 alone, The National Lottery Community Fund distributed
almost £1 billion to charities and community organisations across the UK.
