Thank you!

December has been such a wonderful month for fundraising for the Pre-School and we need to say a BIG THANK YOU to some wonderful people and businesses.  

Thank you to Mike at the Butchers Block for donating 2 vouchers and Aspire Dance for their voucher.   These all went into our Christmas Hamper Raffles at the nativities, where we raised over £200!

Thank you to the grandparent that provided her time and the resources for so many of us to enjoy wreath making – the courses, along with the extra wreaths sold at the Victorian Evening raised almost £250!

Thank you to the staff who have worked really hard this term (and every term!) and have supported our fundraising efforts.  Particularly the staff who ran the stall at the Victorian Evening and helped us raise £250 from the tombola and the lucky dip.  Another fantastic night!

And lastly, thank you to the parents, friends, relatives and children who donated prizes, bought tickets and supported our Pre-Schools!  Thank you for your generosity and we hope you all have a very merry Christmas.
