Bags can be dropped off at the school between 7.45 and 9am on Wednesday 30th June. Thank you for you continued support. If you are expecting any difficulty in getting your bags to the school during the time slot please let us know at email@example.com
Let's make this the biggest collection yet!
Our small PTA Committee needs more help if we are to rise to the challenge and put on a wide programme of events to bring the community together to have fun and raise much needed funds for the school.
If you'd like to help in anyway please do get in touch, firstname.lastname@example.org
It's great to be back (nearly) and be able to think about fun filled activities to entertain our children, bring parents and the wider community together and FUNdraise to help support the school.
Have you missed us? ..
We hope that if restrictions permit and it is safe to do so, our first big event back may be a whole school summer party in July.
In the meantime, here's an update on what's been happening over the last year and ways you can continue to help.

After collecting an amazing 1.12 tonnes of clothes (a new record for one school) back in November, raising £449 in the process, wefve arranged another collection with rags2riches for 30th June.
A great opportunity to have a clear out and donate all those good quality clothes the kids have outgrown over lockdown, whilst helping to recycle and raise money in the process. For more info see the attached poster.
