October has only just started, but we have already got the year’s fundraising off to a wonderful start with £2412.79 raised so far thanks to everyone’s support!
Firstly, our MacMillan Cancer Support coffee ☕ morning raised an amazing £154,63 for a fantastic cause that affects so many families. Thank you to all who contributed cakes, donated money and came along to say hello. Well done to Louise & Dean Couldridge for organising the sale.
Secondly, Westbourne’s very first ❤Preloved❤ nearly new sale raised £400, which is a fantastic amount for a first-time event and provided a great opportunity to recycle rather than throw away those items we no longer need, as well as having a lot of fun. Money was also raised for Local Families with Bleeding Disorders and leftover clothing given to the Sutton Lighthouse charity, who thank Westbourne for their kind gift. Thank you to Emily Rees for running the Westbourne table and sorting through the donations.
Finally, thank you to everyone for making the 📙 Pop-up Book store 📘 such an enjoyable and successful event. We raised a total of £1458.16 though the sale of new books, giving us £814.90 to spend on brand new literacy material for school. A further £400 was raised by the ‘Great Westbourne Book Exchange’ mufti day and the children certainly had fun passing on their favourite books to friends and finding new stories to take home.
👏 Could we thank Mr Bovington very much for going above and beyond his regular duties in helping us run our events. We would also like to thank Jo Yuille for storing and coming along to sell second-hand uniform, which we know many parents appreciate very much. Also, many thanks to Mr Miracapillo and the amazing Westbourne staff for giving up free time and helping wherever they could. Thank you too to all the parents who pitched in to help run stalls, set out the halls and clear away after. We really couldn't do it without you!
🎅DON’T FORGET! Saturday November 30th, Westbourne pupils will be really looking forward to the Christmas Fair! If you are able to help in any way, please get in touch via Classlist/Facebook and at firstname.lastname@example.org
