Raffle Prizes

If you have any unwanted gifts which we could use for raffle prizes, we would love to have them too.

Do you have any contacts with businesses who would be willing to donate a raffle prize or if they have any promotional gifts such as badges, pens etc which we could use for prizes? If so, any donations from this source would be appreciated.

Any donations will be gratefully received and the more we have to sell, the more we are able to raise.

Please mark your donation clearly if it is a raffle prize.

Can you help on the day?

We are asking each class to organise and run a stall with the help of their parents and teachers. You will shortly be receiving a letter from your child’s class asking for help to run their stall on the day. We hope you will be able to help. If you can offer any additional help on the day or you know anyone who would be willing to help, any help is appreciated and we cannot run the event without your support. If you think you can spare some time, please let school know by Thursday 29 th March.


On the day there will be a café serving hot food in the school hall. If anyone would like to make and sell different styles of food on the day (as a takeaway option), please let school know. This was very successful at our Enterprise Afternoon last year.

Glitter Tatoos/Face Painting

These are always popular. If we have any talented artists who can face paint, please let us know.


Thank you very much and we do hope you will be able to join us – put the date on the calendar!

.FOLIS Fundraising - Foreign Currency

 Ever come back from your holiday abroad with a pocket full of foreign coins/notes, thrown them in a drawer ready for your next holiday or trip and then never used them? If so, FOLIS can help you out!

 If you have any foreign currency you don’t need, please send to school in an envelope marked FOLIS – Foreign Currency. They can then exchange the donations, through a set scheme, to raise funds for school.
