CHILDREN’S TV presenter Dave Benson Phillips was a special guest at a barbecue held at Bishopswood Primary School.
He entertained children from the Sonning Common special school as well as singing and playing guitar with local youngsters.
Sam Brown’s International Ukulele Club also performed by a large tree in the school’s playing field.
The event raised more than £1,000 towards a new minibus with wheelchair access.
Davina Turnbull, who chairs the school’s parent-teacher association, said she was “thrilled” to have Benson Phillips as a guest and revealed some visitors were starstruck.
She said: “He did a fantastic job entertaining out children and it even encouraged families from neighbouring schools to attend as well.
“He had great enthusiasm despite the heat and he made many children’s - and even adults’ - day.
“The setting couldn’t have been more peaceful and relaxing. It was a wonderful afternoon with a fantastic atmosphere.”
