School Minibus Fundraising

We are looking for a parent and teacher fundraising team to raise £30,000 over 5 years enabling us to lease a school minibus.  This would be used for small group outings, school trips and the many sporting events we attend.

Our first fundraising event will be a Bring and Buy Sale on Friday 6th December at 2pm.  We are asking for toys that are no longer needed or played with, books, bags, DVD’s, unwanted presents, clothes, shoes etc. This is a great opportunity for that pre-Christmas declutter. We ask that donations are in good condition and brought into school from Monday 2nd December.  Further details will follow nearer the time.

Alongside this we will also be holding a dress down day on Friday 6th December, where children are asked to bring in £1 on that day.

Please speak to Mrs Davis or Ms Hagger if you are interested in becoming a member of the fundraising team.
