Children had the chance to soak their headteacher when he was in the stocks on Saturday.
Malcolm Drakes agreed to be a target during Broadford Primary School’s fun day and was soaked by pupils and the Mayor of Havering, Cllr Eric Munday.
The school, in Faringdon Avenue, raised £1,200 and there were more than 25 stalls run by Havco volunteers. Children also had the chance to sit in a fire engine from Harold Hill Station.
Malcolm said: “We had a fantastic response from parents, staff, pupils and governors this year which helped to ensure it was our most successful fete to date.
“With £1,200 raised so far the school will really benefit from the generous support of the school community.
