Summer Market 2018

The PTA would like to thank everyone involved in making the Summer Market a huge success, this year 800 people came through the gates!

Thank you to our sponsors Proctors and Back In Balance who supported us at this year’s Summer Market and to all the local businesses and parents who

donated prizes for our raffle and clipboard auction. We would also like to say a big thank you to Christian at Jumping Jacks Bouncy Castles ( who lent us the candy floss machine for the day and to Fay Baker who dropped this off and gave us a masterclass on how to use it! Special mention to Sharon McCallum, who ‘volunteered’ to learn how to make the candy floss and is probably still getting candy floss out of her hair now!!

We would like to thank all the volunteers who helped in the planning and preparation and on the day. Thank you to all the parents who bought raffle tickets, donated bottles for the tombola, made cakes and donated uniform for the second-hand uniform stall.

To the students who took raffle tickets home, took them out of their bags and remembered to sell them!!! The form that sold the most this year was 10GB and they have won a chocolate hamper. We would also like to give a thank you to Leigh in Form 8GA. This student sold an outstanding 100 tickets for the raffle!!! A true superstar fundraiser.

To the staff for donating bottles for the ‘Wheelbarrow of Booze’ and for continuing to support the PTA in the events we organise.

Thank you to Julia Smith for organising the dance display and the students who performed in it. The dance added a lovely atmosphere to the courtyard.

A special mention to Resources who send out emails on our behalf and are always willing to help with printing and laminating and to the Reception team who help with collecting the various items we ask you to donate.

To all the Site staff who are always there to help us move things and come up with ingenious solutions to my never ending questions!

And lastly, to everyone who visited on the day and our fantastic stall holders.

The money has been counted and the last few expense receipts have been submitted and I am proud to announce that the Summer Market raised over £9000!!!

This is an incredible achievement considering this was just the third Summer Market we have put on.

If you work for a company that offers matched giving, then we could increase this figure even further. Please get in touch if you think you may be able to apply for this. We have a couple of parents who do apply for us and between them we get over £500 per event!

We hope you have a great summer and look forward to seeing you at a PTA event next term.
