Review of FONS Fundraising

Added on by Andy Howe.

Hello from FONS - we would like to share our fundraising totals for the year (so far!) and inform you about the impact your support makes towards your children and the school.

The three Christmas events - The children's designed and printed Christmas cards, the two Christmas discos and the Christmas hampers raised over £500 between them. It was the first time we have split the disco into separate key stages, in light of having close to 200 pupils, and we had a lot of positive feedback from both parents and children.

FONS Chairman Martin Punter was, once again, a great quizmaster and the Quiz night raised over £400. Thank you to parents and staff who supported this event at the beginning of 2016

The Easter Egg Hunt was great fun and we raised a record amount, close to £500. A big thank you to Tracey Jewitt and her team for the revamped hunt on a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

Some of our money has been spent on the new sports tops (see Mr Howe's other blog post for photos) and stay tuned for the children's reviews of First News, also provided through FONS funding.

On behalf on FONS we would like to thank you for your continued support at these events this academic year, especially as we had to unfortunately postpone our biggest fundraiser - the Fireworks. Remember to come and get your refreshments from us on Sports Day (10th June) and keep an eye out for the return of the amazing Big Ride at Castle Combe Track.
