Chris Martin and Mike Skinner support Highgate School’s summer fair

Music stars Chris Martin and Mike Skinner were among more than 1,000 people who enjoyed a school’s annual summer fair.

Pupils at Highgate School’s junior and pre-prep branches could fly through the air on bungee trampolines, rock climb, and ride ponies around the grounds at the Highgate Summer Fair.

A bake sale overflowed with cakes, while a variety of delicious street food was on offer.

Coldplay’s Mr Martin and Mr Skinner, of band The Streets, posed for photographs with charity workers, who were raising money for Cystic Fibrosis Trust, children’s charity Chance UK and the Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, based in Barnet.

More than £15,000 was raised for the three charities at the fair two weeks ago.
