Wednesday 14th September 2016

Hello,

 

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our Fund Raising team to new families and remind our established parents and carers of what we do.

We are a small band of volunteers consisting of four members of staff and two former, retired employees.

 

It is fair to say that our main fundraiser is our Christmas Bazaar which is an opportunity for the children to buy their Christmas gifts at an event especially for them. This is followed by an after school sale which families are able to attend. The Bazaar is a huge task and we start our preparation for it at the end of December and continue all the way up to November of the following year! It involves buying items for the children to purchase at a good price. Items then may need to be mounted, cellophane wrapped etc. to make them appealing to our little shoppers; and although this is an enjoyable task, it can be very time consuming!

 

The funds we raise go towards little extras for the children at Shakespeare Infants, for example we provide our Year 2 children with a disco and refreshments at the end of the year.

 

We feel sure that there are many of you who have some super ideas to help our school to raise some extra funds, and at the same time have more fun! It is your school and we are open to new ideas also if you can spare some time to help, particularly with time leading up to the Christmas Bazaar then that would greatly appreciated.

 

Come and join us for a coffee on Monday 26th September at 2.30pm, we look forward to meeting you and sharing your ideas!

 

Thank you
