Thank you and more....
MORE@MORO - a night to remember - thank you!
Monday night may just go down in CSG History! A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who joined in, in any way, and helped to make More@Moro such a special event for the school...
There was a lovely, convivial atmosphere and a great sense of community - with a full house of parents, carers, alumni, staff and other friends of the school. We were bowled over by the passionate support for the school - from the lovely student musicians who serenaded the guests in, to the huge generosity of the donors who gifted such wonderful 'select, but very special' prizes for the auction and raffle, the enthusiastic bidders in the really nail-biting auction, and of course all the guests who brought such warmth and commitment to the school.
We look forward with anticipation to see what artwork Cornelia Parker will create with Begbie's Pink Pringle sweater from Trainspotting! Watch this space ...
It was a huge privilege to be able to host More@Moro in such a beautiful restaurant with a lovely menu of delicious food and wine - so a big thanks to Sam and Sam Clark, Moro founders, their wonderfully talented team.
Together, More@Moro raised a staggering £46,000 for everyone at Camden School for Girls. Elizabeth Kitcatt called the event an astounding triumph - and CASCA is humbled by so many people’s generosity, both before and during the event.
A big thanks to the CASCA More@Moro team also - Kelly, Kate, Sam, Imogen, Greg and Nicki, who worked so hard as a team to make it all happen – as well as to all the school staff who helped behind the scenes, particularly Rosemary, Lynda, Kathy, Jenny, Jackie and their wonderful teams.
If you won a prize, we really hope that you get great joy from it. We still need to link some raffle winners with their prizes, so if you hold a ticket, please email Imogen, email@example.com to let us know.
More@Moro was part of our year-long 60 for 60 campaign to help furnish all the new school spaces. So, if you couldn't join in this time, but want to support the school on 60 for 60 anyway, please do so either at the 60 for 60 Just Giving site or via your ParentPay account.

Please note that we can't accept any items for the Jumble Sale after 6pm on Friday 10 November - so don't leave it to the last minute. We'd have to ask you to take anything home after that time. Best to get it to the school ASAP.
