Summer Market 2017

The PTA would like to thank everyone involved in making the Summer Market a huge success, this year over 1200 people came through the doors!

Summer market 2 17Thank you to all our sponsors Proctors, Home Lettings, Charlie’s Little Cyprus Restaurant and Rushmores 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 and Faye at Jumping Jacks Bouncy Castles (www.jumpingjacksbouncycastles.co.uk) who lent us the candy floss machine for the day.

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 stall.

Summer market 3 17To 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 9GB and they have won a chocolate hamper. Well done girls.

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 the teachers and students who performed for us on the day. The music and dance added a lovely atmosphere to the courtyard.

A special mention to the resource area 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 £10,807.58!!!

This is an incredible achievement considering this was just the second 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.

Best wishes,

Christine Stephen
