We raised an incredible £5277 from Woolfest this year!! This is fantastic and we are really pleased! And we are hopeful that some Matched Funding will come in as well, which could take us up to the £8500 mark! So a huge THANK YOU for coming and for any help you may have provided before, during or after the event! Massive thanks too to The Highclere Red House, Paper Houses, DJ Chris Pearce, Ab Fab Loos, JV Bouncy Castles, Easy Ice Supplies, The Two Cocks Brewery, and all the local individuals and businesses for donating to the Silent Auction.
Come to our AGM on Thursday 20th September at 6 pm at the school to decide how it should be spent and how we can make sure it truly benefits our school and children. The Committee also needs a new Secretary and some new members, so please come along to find out more. We are a friendly bunch and would be grateful for any time at all that you can spare - even just half an hour once in a while. If we don’t have enough members, we can’t spend the funds we’ve raised this year.
Email email@example.com for more information, or leave a message with the school office.
