Many thanks to all of those who donated prizes and/or bought raffle tickets for the raffle at the Compass Theatre during the performances of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.
Sreeya, Marta, Helina and Tito have been doing some hairdressing in the playground at breaktimes to raise money and their total will be announced in due course.
We reported last week on the sponsored run by Year 3 children which raised a staggering £1500+. Year 4 children will be doing a sponsored times tables test and Year 5 children will be having a 'Soak the Teacher' on Tuesday 12th July.
Lower School will be doing some fundraising next week. There will be a book sale on Monday, at which children can donate a nearly new book and pay £1 for a different one. There will also be a 'soak the teacher' event next Wednesday, which will cost £2. Please do allow your children to bring in some money on these days!
Children have been taking the initiative individually too. Nina S has now raised £95 with her 'Guess How Many Sweets In The Jar' competition. The winner was Amishi in 4T. One of our youngest fundraisers, Poppy H (currently in our Nursery) has completed a sponsored run of her own. She ran 2500m, the furthest she had ever managed, and raised £116.71! We are very proud of children who show initiative and charitable spirit in this way.
There will be a tog day for Relay for Life at the start of next term (Monday 12th September) and the Relay itself will take place on Saturday 10th September at the Roger Bannister stadium in Harrow. We do hope that we will see many of you there - it is a family day and all of the money raised goes to Cancer Research UK. In the meantime, if you would like to buy a 'Candle of Hope' for the very moving candlelight ceremony, please do so by following this link. You should complete the form and send it to Mrs. Stark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your candle will bear your dedication and the candles are lit all around the edge of the track while Relay team members continue to walk through the darkness, to show that cancer never sleeps and nor does the fight against it.
We thank you, as always, for your support for this most worthy of causes.
