The May Fair was a huge success!

Our May Fair last Saturday was a huge success!

Ignoring the cold and rainy weather, the great people of East Linton turned up at school in droves to enjoy the stalls, games and food.

Everyone had great fun, and as an added bonus, we raised £1100 for the school!! This is way up on the last few years’ takings – so a huge THANK YOU to everyone who supported us.

We would also like to thank all the Parent Council members, the many non-members, all the staff, and the six P7s who gave up their time to run a stall, help set-up/clear-up or ensure that everything ran smoothly. Special mention goes to Bobby the Janitor who worked tirelessly all day.

Every penny raised goes straight to the school! We will be spending most of this year’s profit on:

  • Junior Road Safety – £120
  • Jolly Phonics for Whiteboard (nursery to P3) – £235
  • Rugby balls and frisbee nets for the playground – £200
  • P7 yearbooks – £250

What did you think of the May Fair? Should this be a permanent fixture in the school calendar or should we try a different fundraising event in the Spring next year? We’d love to hear from you. Please drop us an email at elpsparentcouncil@gmail.com. Thanks!

Donations needed for the May Fair

The school May Fair is this Saturday from 11am to 2pm.

 

Have you had a clear-out over the bank holiday? We will gratefully accept donations for our toy and book stalls, for the raffle or tombola, bottles of wine (full or empty with lid!) and items of good-quality outgrown uniform for the thrift shop.

Please bring these items to school this week.

The cafe is always popular at the Fair – please hand in donations of nut-free home baking on the day.

Keep your fingers crossed for sunshine and see you there!

 

THANK YOU TO EVERYBODY!
