The competition organisers said the winning school would get a special visit from a mystery celebrity.

St Gregory’s staff pinned a host of fun fundraising ideas including a lunch-time rave, red nose bowling and a play dough day on its board, to scoop the mystery guest prize.

Following up on the competition prize, McFly drummer Harry Judd emerged as the mystery guest, who met pupils at the school and serenaded the pupils with a drum performance while they enjoyed a spontaneous Christmas dinner.
