Our Treasurer, Tracey Bottoms, has been counting, recounting and banking the summer fete profits.
We are very pleased to announce that the PROFIT made from last Saturday is: AN AMAZING £3406.06!!!
This figure may change slightly due to extra credits coming in.
The Summer Fete committee still cannot quite believe that much was raised in two hours.
We would like to say a Special Thank You to -
Sandra and Paul Birley - who ran the lucky envelopes stall - they raised £231.05 which was charity matched by Barclays therefore raising a fantastic £462.10.
Dandara - our main sponsors paid £300 towards stalls and prizes. This meant we were able to offer games like the balloon blast without worrying about covering the costs.
Tescos and Priestleys Farm Shop - for providing the fruit.
Indigo Estate Agents and all the other companies that offered raffle prizes.
Kong and Caught Stealing for playing for free and adding to the great atmosphere.
You - staff/parents/carers/friends/
family - for volunteering, donating things, buying raffle tickets and supporting the day.
The committee members for helping to organise and promote it.
We really hope Mrs Sealey enjoyed her last Russell Lower School Summer Fete as Head Teacher.
The money raised will go towards new outdoor play equipment. If you would like an input in this please join us at our next PTA meeting in September 29th at 345pm - crèche provided (details to follow in the new term).
Our next events should be a Halloween Disco and the School Ball.
The PTA would like to wish you all a relaxing (if that is possible!) and fun summer holidays.
Thank you for all your support
The Summer Fete Committee and the PTA.
