Newcastle Academy's Community Craft Fair and WAT a Run!

26th March 2024

This spring, get ready to be a part of something truly special! Newcastle Academy, who all recently joined the Windsor Academy Trust (WAT) family in January 2024, are thrilled to invite you to a day filled with community, crafts, and camaraderie. Join us on Saturday, 11th May 2024, from 11 am to 3 pm for our Community Craft Fair and be a part of the excitement surrounding the WAT a Run – an event that's not just a run but a celebration of our collective spirit and dedication to making a difference.

Discover Local Talents at the Community Craft Fair

Dive into a treasure trove of creativity at the Community Craft Fair with over 60 craft stalls featuring handmade goods perfect for any occasion. The fair isn't just about shopping; it's a full day of entertainment with activities for everyone - from a bouncy castle and face painting to arts and crafts, and even a penalty shootout. It's a wonderful opportunity for the whole community to come together and enjoy a day of fun, laughter, and celebration.

WAT a Run 2024: More Than Just a Run

As one of the newest members of the WAT family, we're excited to host our segment of the WAT a Run for the first time, building on the success of last year's event. This year, the run focuses on a cause that touches all our hearts: eradicating bed poverty in our schools and ensuring every child has access to breakfast. With a fundraising goal of £20,000, we're not just running for health; we're running to make a real difference in the lives of children and families across our communities.

Be Part of the Movement

  • Cheer on the Runners: The runners, made up of WAT Family staff members, symbolise our united efforts towards a common goal. While participation in the run itself is exclusive to WAT Family, we invite everyone to come out, cheer on the runners, and be part of the vibrant atmosphere.

  • Join the Fun: Look out for announcements on fun runs and other engaging activities happening at our schools along the route. These events are open to the entire community, offering another fantastic way to get involved.

  • Donate and Spread the Word: Every contribution, no matter the size, helps us move closer to our goal. Share our cause with your network and consider donating to support our efforts. Your generosity can change lives.
