Finally, the reason we hold these shows is to raise money for Windmill Primary School and Northants Model Makers, at the last show we raised around £1500, with £1200 going to the school. This year the Head has informed that the funds raised will be used for some new IT equipment (I Pads and Notebooks).
Come along and enjoy the show, something for the whole family.
