*Christmas Fair Update* Witton School raised a whopping £1193 which, given the fact that we haven’t been able to run any events in school for parents, is AMAZING!! This money is going to be used towards additional curriculum resources across the school in 2021. We have also qualified for the Barclays Matched Funding initiative which means that they will match this amount raised with a further £1000 which is great news. We want to say a HUGE thank you for your fabulous support for all of our Christmas fund raising activities over the past couple of weeks. Our parental and community support is amazing, thank you!
The Christmas Fair is our main fundraiser of the year. It enables us to pay for things like our school fun day, in-school theatre visits, subsidise school trips as well as many other activities and resources we strive to offer. Our school budget cannot stretch to anything but the essentials so the school fair is vital to support school funds. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we are unable to hold the school fair this year but we are hoping to still safely carry out some of the usual activities such as the raffle, chocoholics stall(chocolate tombola) and Jolly Jars.
BUT WE DESPERATELY NEED YOUR HELP!
From now until the 4th December we would be very grateful for any contributions towards raffle prizes and the chocoholics stall.
- Raffle: Covid-Style The children will be allocated raffle tickets to bring home. If you wish to buy them, please return the stubs of the tickets bought- along with payment- inside a labelled envelope, to be entered into the raffle. It will be drawn on the 11th December 2020
