HEAD teacher Yvonne Nunn had a soaking after volunteering for the pillory during her school’s summer fair. Ms Nunn braved wet sponges and even a hose pipe at Hampton’s fundraising afternoon last Friday. The event also featured stalls, pony rides and a fire engine with the crew sharing safety messages. School spokeswoman Tracy Self said:

“We had a fantastic afternoon in the sunshine and the fire appliance caused great excitement. The school choir sung the Military Wives’ ‘Sing’ to a packed field. Our ‘Sponge a Teacher in the Pillory’ was extremely popular. Ms Nunn, along with teachers Mr Metcalf, Mr Skew, Mr Gunson and others were all in the firing line for this one. However, there did appear to be a little bit of extra help with the soaking when a hose was seen to come into play.”

The sponge-a-teacher stall alone raised more than £100, and profit from the two-hour event was £1,750. Mrs Self added:

“Full credit goes to the PTA and staff who helped set up and run the event.”
