Friends Novembers Newsletter
We would like to start by thanking everyone for their support with the recent events this month. Firstly our 80’s Top of the Pops night was a huge success. Not only raising over £1000 on the night but also a great social event. The atmosphere and outfits were amazing. Secondly our online auction did amazingly well, topping our original target of£1000 by raising £1660. Local businesses were so generous and supportive of the school. All these funds will go directly to buying much need materials and resources for school. We will keep you posted on what is bought in the next couple of months.
Our Halloween film night was also a success and thank you to all volunteers who helped out. We raised £80.00. We will be doing a Christmas themed film night, dates to be announced later. Please remember siblings are also welcome to attend.
We will be helping out at the school Christmas fete this year so please if you can help even for an hour or so please do let us know. We also need donations of tombola prizes for the adults and children along with any cakes. So please do get baking as we will be having a cake stall on the day. Any cakes or buns can be left at school on the Friday before.
Our 100 club is also up and running. Shiona Slater will be at the school Fete letting people know how they can take part. Please do support this as we need a minimum of numbers sold to be a success.
Bags4school will also be back on Wednesday 6th December so please hold onto any unwanted clothes. We get paid per weight per bag so it doesn't matter what they look like. Bags for this will go out two weeks before and last year we raise £162.04 so it really does help.
Thank you to everyone who bought Christmas cards, this raised £160. All artwork has now gone off the designers and will be send home to each child soon.
Our AGM meeting will be held on Thursday 16th November 3.30pm at school. We would love to see you there, hear your thoughts, ideas and suggestions. Everyone is welcome parents, carers, grandparents.
Thank you also to everyone who filled out our questionnaire, feedback is vital for us so much appreciated. We now have a dedicated website www.friendsofthreshield.co.uk will be updated regularly with attends and information so please do take a look.
Finally with Christmas round the corner if you do any shopping online then please register with easyfundraising.org. All you have to do is sign up and select Threshfield Primary School. Then each time you buy anything the school gets a percentage. It only takes 2 minutes to register and it will mean lots of extra money for school so please, please make the time to use it. www.easyfundraising.org.uk
