FoF *FREE* second hand uniform stall

Do you love a bargain? Is “free” your favourite price?! 

Friends of Fishergate will be running a completely FREE (zero pence required) second hand uniform stall on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th November in the lower school hall straight after school, so come along and stock up. 

We have red jumpers, grey trousers, skirts and pinafores in many sizes. We also have shorts and some summer dresses if you want to be smug and get organised for next year!

So please don’t be shy, think of the money you could save and the environmental benefits of not buying new.
