2018 and 2019 really are the years to pull out any fundraising ideas you may have... if you're planning to complete a marathon, triathlon or sponsored walk, please consider using this as a fundraiser for the Playground Appeal.  If you have an idea for a fundraising event that you'd like to put on at school, be it a craft workshop, dance social or bingo night, please get in touch - we'd love to hear your ideas!  But most importantly, join in with the events, come along and have fun in the safe knowledge that your money is going towards a very worthwhile cause.
Please contact us at with any suggestions you might have.
