Jam Jars. We need jam jars both filled and empty for both the Summer and Christmas Fayres. Please don’t throw away your jars, bring them to us.

Raffle and tombola prizes. We will need donations for raffle and tombola prizes for both the Summer and Christmas Fayres. Please don’t take your unwanted gifts to the charity shop, save them for the school instead

Ideas. We are always trying to think of new, interesting and fun ways to raise money for the school. Please do let us know if you have any. Come along to one of our meetings or just grab one of us in the playground.

Old Clothes. Not only do we need you to hang onto your old clothes, shoes and belts to fill our "Bags 2 School" bags but Mrs McCormick has also requested that if you have any clothes suitable for dressing up could Cherry Class please have them for role play.

Jigsaws. Mrs McCormick has also requested that if anyone has any jigsaws they are no longer using could Cherry Class please have them too?
