Year One Fundraising

Miss O’Brien and the class are really excited about African Day on 23 June but we need to raise some extra funds to pay for it. After school on Friday 26 May (the day we break up for half term) we will have a stall selling toys (old and new), books, ice creams and drinks. Please could you let me or Rita (Lora’s Mum) know if you can donate anything or if you’re around to help out. The more the merrier. Thank you. Jude (Kitty and Freddie’s Mum).
