Summer Gala Day, Sunday 5th July, 11am -3pm
Dear Parents and Carers,
We didn't have a summer fete last year, but this year the Friends of Neatherd have really kindly agreed to run an event on Sunday 5th July. If you've been to one of these events before, you'll know that it will be an excellent day, with free entry, live entertainment, food, activities for old and young, stalls, prizes and sport (see the flyer attached). The reason it's so important this year is because the school needs a new minibus. Our current one is 12 years old and has served us well in its daily use transporting students on fixtures, trips and events; however, everyone would benefit if it could be upgraded. To this end, we're asking for help and support:
- We'll be sending an envelope home this week or next with raffle tickets - maybe you could purchase some?
- We really need your unwanted gifts, teddies, bottles (alcohol is fine!), unwanted crockery* and items that we can make up hampers with - if you have any of these things, could you please bring in to Reception?
- Volunteers - we can't run the size of event without people around to help run the stall and activities. We've got so many ready to go - inflatables, sponge the teacher, bowling, knock-over-tins,
- buzz-off, pin the tail, crockery smash* to name a few - but so far haven't the man/women/youth-power to run them.
If you can help with any of these areas, it would be so very much appreciated.
Bring your donations to Reception at any time, and/or contact the Friends through
firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help out on the day.
Many thanks indeed.
