IT'S time to put on those thinking caps to help a mid-Norfolk school to recover from a fire.
Kim Sergeant, a parent and neighbour of Barnham Broom Primary, is to put the proceeds of a fun quiz session he is running at the village hall on Saturday, March 15, (7pm for 7.30pm) towards the drive to re-equip the school.
The fire - being treated as arson - broke out at the newly-reburbished school in January, destroying the main activity room, damaging a classroom and ruining thous-ands of pounds of educational and play equipment.
Afterwards, people from across the county gave money, books and toys after reading about the plight of the children and staff there in the Times and our sister paper, the Eastern Daily Press.
Kim, whose daughter Eve is a pupil, said: “It is a fabulous school. Hopefully, we will be able to help to raise money for a particular piece of equipment or whatever else the headmaster needs to buy.”
Kim has organised quizzes in the past for the school and for the local playgroup.
