Hi everyone,


I hope you all enjoyed our Christmas Fayre on Saturday.


It was a lovely event, great atmosphere and on behalf of the committee, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your support.


If you cast your mind back to October, to our Funky Hair Friday, you kindly donated items towards our Christmas Fayre. All of the items that you sent in were put to good use on the day. A huge thank you for your generosity, it really did make a difference.


I won't name people individually for the fear of accidentally missing someone out...however, I would like to say a heartfelt thanks to all of you that have donated items, baked or bought cakes, ran the cafe, the stalls and the raffles. A thank you to those that created and ran games for the children to play, to the clever ladies who lovingly made beautiful craft items and the team that prepared delicious turkey rolls for us to enjoy. To Astrid with her fab handmade slime, what a sell out! and to the children who sang beautifully. Thank you to the team who created our fantastic magical grotto and a special thank you to Father C and his fabulous Christmas helpers. Also a huge thanks to all of the helpers who worked behind the scenes leading up to the event and for taking the time to help pack everything down and clear away.


As always thank you to Mrs Milford, Janet and Charlotte along with all of the staff at Ellwood School for their continued support and help at all of our events.


And finally, to you, to all of the parents, carers, grandparents and friends who came on the day to make the event happen.


I am absolutely thrilled to tell you, that you have helped to raise a massive .......................... £1173! Wow! What a huge amount raised in just a couple of hours. This money helps us to continue to provide education items and equipment for the benefit all pupils.


Well done and thank you everyone.
