Many thanks again, for your fabulous support of our school!
We regularly support the Barnsley Hospice Charity and in the run up to Christmas this year we have the following taking place in school to support the Hospice. We understand that times are hard for people at the moment, however, we want to support our local charity as much as we can.
We have supported the Hospice Chocolate Bouquet Raffle. Thank you so much for supporting this - we managed to sell all the squares on two sheets, raising a wonderful £200 for the Hospice!
We are also taking part in the Rudolph Run as we did last year. Sponsor forms are being sent home on 7th December with the run taking place on Tuesday 15th December. Antlers and red noses will be given out on the day. Money raised for this is split 50/50 between school and Barnsley Hospice. Once again, many thanks on behalf of the school and the Hospice.
We have set up a school lottery. This lottery has been set up specifically to raise money and make a difference for our children! We intended to launch the lottery before the Coronavirus pandemic hit us and therefore we understand that this is not a great time financially for people but we really appreciate your support.
It's a fantastic way to bring Parents, Carers, Teachers and the wider community together, in partnership with our school, and at the same time give something back. We hope to raise funds that can support and enrich the education of our children - we aim to provide extra resources for the children, improve the school environment as well as run extracurricular activities such as music, art and sport. We are currently fundraising towards the provision of sensory areas in and around our school to promote children's wellbeing.
Please see the attached documents which explain how it works and there is a link in the launch a lottery document to click on if you wish to sign up. Tickets are £1.00 per week.
Please feel free to share this with your family/friends/colleagues or anyone that you feel may be interested in joining our school lottery. If you sign up before 19th December 2020 you could also win a truly huge Nintendo Switch Mega Bundle containing:
- Nintendo Switch Neon Console
- Mario Kart Home Circuit DOUBLE PACK (Mario + Luigi)
- 2 Games: Lego Marvel Heroes 2 and Minecraft
- Nintendo Switch case and accessory pack
- Mario and Luigi hat
Your support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck!
