Bingo Night, 7th November

Amount raised £860!!

Thank you to everyone who helped to organise, get donations for prizes, the companies who provided  the Bingoprizes,  donations for cake & candy, helped out on the night, and of course everyone who came along to support the event.

It was another wonderful, fun, family night with a fantastic turnout – and we raised a huge sum of money for the school!
