Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 20th September 2019

20 September 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Next Friday, the children and staff will be taking part in the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The staff and children will be busy making sweet treats in school in preparation for Friday’s celebration. We will of course pay close attention to any allergies our children may have.

We would then like to encourage the children to bring a small donation to school on Friday to raise as much funds as we can for this exceptional charity.

Sadly, we all have friends and loved ones who have been through tough times and the work all our cancer charities do is invaluable. Research is making a huge difference. In the meantime, as the charity say themselves, ‘every penny raised helps Macmillan be right there for people living with cancer.’

I hope you all enjoy the sunshine this weekend.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler

Headteacher
