A thank you from The Friends of Cirencester Deer Park School
The Friends of Deer Park School would like to thank everybody who has supported fundraising efforts, whether by buying school uniform from our second hand sales, shopping online with easyfundraising, putting tokens in the Tesco Community Grants boxes in stores, buying refreshments at school events, attending the Quiz & Chilli night, buying our 2022 School Calendar or donating to or bidding on items in our Online Auction.
'We are very grateful for your support. Many thanks to everyone who generously donated items for the online auction. A big thank you also to all our volunteers who have helped to make these events a success.'
Thanks to your support, The Friends have been awarded a grant of nearly £1,000 from the Tesco Community Grants programme to purchase new outdoor seating for the school.
We are still awaiting payments from winning bidders in our online auction and will reveal how much we have raised from this event in the new year. Watch this space!
Miss Brace, Assistant Head: 'I am incredibly grateful for everybody’s generosity. To the Friends for the hours of tireless work behind these events to organise and coordinate. To the local community, including parents, for donating an item, making a fabulous chilli, buying a coffee, putting a blue token in the Tesco box or bidding on an item. This is a vital source of funding for the school. Thank you!'
However, in order to carry on fundraising for the school in the future, we really need your help. We have a small committee and will be losing members next year when their children, who are currently in Year 11, move on from Deer Park School.
Therefore, we are looking for new members to join our committee and shadow existing members before they step down. If we do not recruit more committee members, we will not be able to continue the important fundraising that the Friends have been doing for the school over the past years.
If you are interested in joining our committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support.
