Thank you and congratulations!
Table Top Sale
Our Table Top Sale was a great success. It raised an amazing £1731 for the school - a record amount! So, many thanks to our 42 stall-holders and 14 rail-keepers who offered lots of great stuff for the customers to buy - and to everyone who donated cakes and items for the CASCA stall. Almost half the tables were run by regulars, who have been setting up stall for many years - it's a popular event!
Everyone we spoke to was pleased with their sales - and some asked for more than one Table Top Sale each year...
A big thanks also to our new team Irene, Sheila Donn and Rachel Orme - who ran the event for the first time this year - and of course our indefatigable Mary Kavanagh who led them through the process. Thanks too to all the school staff who gave amazing help too - Don (school keeper) and Lynda Charlesworth for her counting, as well as Jackie, Karen, Lynn and Jenny who all helped with publicity and administration - essential ingredients for success.
We look forward to next year's event - with our new (now experienced) team!
The Quiz Night also was a fantastic success - and great fun, with delicious food and warm atmosphere. The hall was packed - with a people, laughter and friendly competition on the ever-challenging and entertaining questions. A highlight was the line-up of fake Trump look-a-likes, complete with American accents and now-famous quotes! As always, the CASCA Bar was extremely popular - the fabulous Camden Cocktails a great innovation. Overall, the evening made [almost £6,000] - an amazing amount for the school. Sam and Sam Clark were incredibly generous in donating all the delicious Moro food [as well as the drinks], and the raffle made a record £732.
A huge thanks again to everyone who helped make the evening such a success (listed in last week's Friday News) and to everyone who donated prizes for the raffle. Thanks too to everyone who came along and who supported the event, including parents, friends and staff, and of course our student helpers.
We have lots to look forward to, including a Parents' Forum, CASCA meeting and AGM on Tuesday 16 May (note new date), our annual SummerFest on Friday 9 June, and a new Dance-a-thon on Friday 30 June. Watch out for more details....
Thank you for all your support!
