Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Malawi Summer Fun Fundraiser

21 June 2016

Dear Parents

I am writing to you to invite all students, extended family and friends and staff to attend the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Malawi Summer Fun Fundraiser.

This will be held on the School Sports Field and in the Sports Hall on the last day of term July 13 from 2.00-4.30 pm.

There will be:-

  • A huge bouncy castle

  • Human inflatable table football

  • An inflatable assault course

  • Beat the Goalie

  • Lots of fun games

  • Stalls : books, games and toys, cakes, bric a brac and lots more

  • Raffle

  • Ice Creams and Refreshments

Wristbands for unlimited turns on the bouncy castle and other inflatable games will cost £5.

All other games and stalls vary from 20-50p.

As a key part of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award the participating students complete a volunteering section. As you know many of our students have been collecting, sorting and boxing educational supplies to donate to 16 schools in Malawi. It costs £30 to send each box of donated supplied to Malawi. Over the last 4 year we have sent over 200 boxes of books, uniforms and sports equipment to our partner schools in Malawi, so please help us raise the money to send even more!

Next year 3 of the Duke of Edinburgh students hope to join Mrs Symon our D of E Leader on a trip to Malawi to visit the 16 school we have been helping and see how your donations have made a difference.

Please join us for what promises to be a Fun Afternoon to raise funds with our Duke of Edinburgh’s Award students and celebrate the last day of term together.

If you are able to donate raffle items, cakes for the cake stall, books, games and toys or bric a brac please bring these to Mrs Thomas on Reception on or before Wednesday 13 July.

Many thanks in advance for your donations and support and we look forward to seeing you all on the day.

Kind regards

Hilary B Marsden

Headmistress
