What a superb Sports Day and Carnival Summer Fair we had last week. We raised over a £1000 thanks to all of your support and generosity, money that is going straight into the "Outdoor Classroom Fund".
Special thanks to Pennant Riding for bringing their lovely ponies - we know these are a hit. To Ravenscroft and Thackeray for the donation of delicious burgers and sausages. To the talented Gareth Cust for creating the fabulous "Pallet Stalls" ( we now know your skills!), to volunteer helpers cooking, setting up, clearing away, "manning" stalls and "being there" and to the wonderful staff at Ysgol y Llan who arranged such lovely attractions.
It was really lovely to see some "new" faces at the planning meeting for the Fair and to share ideas. The success of Friends relies entirely on AS MANY people as possible joining in. We all have a common aim - making money to enhance the wonderful facilities and experiences which our children enjoy. Please come along to the next meeting - YOUR SCHOOL NEEDS YOU.
We will soon be sending home some more raffle tickets ( to be drawn at the end of the Leavers Concert ). We will be offering a prize to the family which sells the MOST raffle tickets and, as you all know, we normally manage to source some FANTASTIC prizes, so dig deep please. With over 120 children in school, if every child sells just £5 of tickets that would instantly raise £600.
Remember, the sooner we have our Outdoor Classroom the sooner we can all take a break from fundraising!
Thanks once again for your support.
