Charity Fundraising Day - 15 October 2021

5 October 2021 (by admin)

On Friday 15th October we shall be having our termly fundraiser.

Each Autumn we raise money for our school in Gambia, Abuko Nursery School, where we pledge £200 per year to provide an education for ten pupils who would otherwise not be able to be educated.

In addition, Miss Seton-Jones will be running a sponsored marathon at the weekend to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society. All funds beyond the first £200 will be sent to this cause.

Kindly make your donations via ParentMail.

There will be two events for the children on the day: 


1/ We ask children to find out one fact about Gambia to share with their teacher- it could be about its population, its location, its religions, its culture, its flag- I am looking for a mixture of interesting facts for the children to share in school; and


2/ We shall try to race Miss Seton-Jones in a marathon. She will have to run the full 26.2 miles herself (at the weekend) but we shall share it between the 300 pupils. hence about 140 metres each- a couple of lengths of the all weather pitch should suffice. The first classes should start around 9.30 a.m., and it should be done and dusted within a couple of hours. Beat that, Miss Seton-Jones!


I do hope you will be able to support these two good causes.
