P.T.F.A. Promise Auction

18th January 2018

Dear parents and carers,

The PTFA is busy planning what we hope will be a fabulous night of fundraising for our school. Our second promise auction takes place on the evening of Friday 18th May – which gives you plenty of time to organise a babysitter!

In 2016, the auction raised £3,500 which was used to buy the outdoor climbing wall.

Can you think of something that you could donate to the auction? Are you able to offer your professional services? It doesn’t necessarily have to cost anything other than your time.  Maybe you know someone who would be willing to donate.  It doesn’t matter if lots are duplicated, as the more lots we have, the more successful the event will be.

Here are some ideas:

·         B&B stay

·         Lawn mowing

·         Car washing / valet

·         Hamper of homemade preserves

·         Making a celebration cake

·         Painting and decorating

·         Hobby lesson, e.g. painting, woodcraft

·         Babysitting

·         Baking afternoon tea

·         Carpentry

·         Gift Vouchers

·         Beauty treatments

·         Hairdressing

·         Cleaning or ironing

·         Hamper of local farm produce

·         Weekend use of a caravan/holiday home

·         Handyman/woman for a few hours

·         Bush craft session

·         Horse riding lesson

·         Music tuition

·         Photographic session

·         Sports coaching

·         Cooking a meal

·         Gardening

If you are able to help, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please fill out the reply slip and return it to the school office by Friday 9th February.
