Party business to raise funds for Romford school
Two Romford women are setting up a children’s party business to help raise money for school improvements.
A-List Kids, founded by Angie McGee and sister-in-law Leah McGee, who is a teacher at Redden Court School, Romford, will be hosting birthday parties at the school to fundraise for a new performance area.
The school has had a �6.2m government grant to build a drama studio, arts facilities, canteen and reception area.
But it is still looking to raise between �50,000 and �100,000 for a quad area in the middle of the new buildings to become a performance area with landscaping, trees and benches for the children to sit on at breaks.
The school has held a number of events already to raise funds including a family sports day and raffles.

But Leah, an advanced skills English teacher, said the effort needs an extra boost.
She said: “It is a great way to throw parties for children, but also raise money for the school.”
