St. Crux News – Update!
We raised a whopping £1000!
All our thanks to everyone who donated, carried, shifted, baked, sold, wrapped and stacked. Well done all. Emma and Gaynor (Class 2)
On December 5th the school will have its annual cafe and bric-a-brac sale at St. Crux church, situated at the end of the Shambles. This is next Wednesday!
Twice a year we have the use of St Crux for this purpose and its a lovely way to make some extra money for the school. This year Emma Cooper (KG1/Cl1) and Gaynor Evans (KG1/Cl2) are organising the day and we very much need your help to make it a success.
We rely on volunteers to staff the cafe and bric-a-brac stalls, provide the food to sell in the cafe inside the church, and bric-a-brac and books to sell outside on the stalls. The rota for the day and a pledge list for items for the cafe is in the main corridor – please sign up to help in any way you can.
We realise that many of you have children in early years, so to make it easier for you to get involved there will be an afternoon school creche open to any children in early years – sign up for a place in the main corridor.
Who and what we need:
Drivers and helpers at school from 8:50 on the day to load up bric-a-brac, books, food etc to take to St Crux
Volunteers to help set up the cafe and stalls at St Crux from 9am
Volunteers to staff the cafe and bric-a-brac stalls
Volunteers to help clear-up at the end of the day and take unsold items to charity shops and the tip
Lots of donations of cakes, sandwich fillings, and soups to serve in the cafe
Donations of bric-a-brac to sell – please only whole, unbroken items.
Please bring your bric-a-brac to school and leave outside the cupboard at the bottom of the staircase leading up to the cafe.
Any food donations should be left on the school entrance table on the afternoon of Tuesday 4th December or first thing Wednesday morning.
With best wishes and thanks in anticipation of your help!
