Are you thinking of Summer yet?
Well, it may be a little bit too soon for you but the Events Committee is already starting their planning of the Summer Fair, which will take place this year on 17th June.
So, once again we will be looking for parent volunteers who will be willing to help around the planning of the event and on the day of the Fair.
The early planning work concentrates on trying to source suitable and attractive raffle prizes, as these can contribute hugely to the overall success of the raffle and profitability of the Fair. While we are approaching various local business asking for raffle prizes donations, we would also like to encourage you, dear St Joseph’s parents, to think if you can help by donating a raffle prize or helping source one through your own contacts. Here are just some ideas how this can be done:
· Perhaps you have your own business and can provide a product as a prize or a voucher for a service?
· Or maybe you work for a company that is able to donate a prize and you can directly approach your boss or a relevant person to ask for their support.
· Or you can approach someone whose services you regularly access (e.g. your nail technician, fitness instructor) and ask them to support our raffle through donating a voucher for a free or discounted service.
· Or you just want to simply buy a suitable prize to be included in the raffle.
If you wish to donate a prize or wish to pass information about a business which may be worth approaching, please contact Agnieszka Stephen, P2C mum, by e-mail to email@example.com or on mobile 07708703657.
The prizes can be big or small and each of them will be much appreciated!
