Many thanks to everyone who brought in bottles for the Bring-A-Bottle Non-Uniform Day today, it looks like the bottle tombola at next Saturday’s fete will be very popular! If you forgot your bottle today or would like to donate a bottle (or two!) more please send them in to the school office next week. We would also welcome any donations of toys (for the Toy Tombola being run by Aaron & Chris from Year 5), plants for the plant stall and cakes & biscuits.
Which leads nicely onto the Bake Off which is part of the fete next week. Everyone can enter as many times as they like and all proceeds will be split 50:50 between the PTFA and the Willow Foundation. The Bake Off is a fun event open to everyone so please get involved, and spread the word!
Here, again, are the details:
Cupcakes, Tray Bake, Cake With Layers, Infants (any bake), Juniors (any bake)
Price Per Entry: £1.50p adult & 50p child – Pay on the Day
50% will be donated to The Willow Foundation
Drop Off 10am-12.30pm & Winner announced at 1.30pm
There is no need to register in advance, just turn up on the day.
Cakes to be sold afterwards if donated with, again, 50% going to The Willow Foundation.
The PTFA are still looking for some volunteers to help at the Summer Fete.
We need one or two volunteers to run stalls such as the coconut shy, hook a duck and sweet tombola, and we would also appreciate some help setting up and clearing away. If you can help please speak to the School Office and they will put you in touch with someone from the PTFA. You don’t have to commit to the whole fete – any help is very gratefully received.
Finally, the raffle. In addition to the great prizes printed on the tickets, including £50, gym membership and a hamper, we have now had a Kindle Fire donated as a prize! For your chance to win one of these great prizes just buy some raffle tickets – on sale at just 20p each. A raffle ticket booklet was sent home with each child last week but if you would like more tickets they are available from the school office. Please make sure that all ticket stubs and unsold tickets are returned to the school by the time of the Summer Fete.
The PTFA Summer Fete is the BIG fundraising event of the year and the school would like to thank in advance the PTFA, parents, staff & friends for all the help, support and donations that have been put into this annual event.
Have a great weekend, and we hope to see you on the 13th for the Fete!
