FERRETS were the central attraction at Kineton Primary School which held a fundraising race night with a difference.

The races, on Saturday, 3rd February, included a jacket potato dinner and refreshments including Fursty Ferret ale.

Sophie Huddlestone, the chairperson of the Friends of Kineton Primary who organised the event, said: “It was an exciting evening. The children got to meet the ferrets, help name them and cuddle them too.”

The 16 ferrets used in the races were from Heart of England Ferret Association and Chase Ferret Rescue group. The event raised nearly £800, which will go towards the purchase of new playground equipment.

There will also be another ferret race fundraiser with a Fish n’ Chip supper at 7pm on Saturday, 10th March at Tiddington Community Centre to benefit Stratford Sea Cadets.
