Auction Evening – 24th November
Our Auction evening is drawing closer and the PTFA are working hard organising this special event. We would be grateful if you could support our fundraising evening – it will be held at The Royal Oak on the 24th November with a start time of 8pm. We always have a great night, filled with lots of fun and friendly bidding rivalry! We have around 60 lots with items such as: Cattle Country Vouchers, Gifford Circus Mug, Reiki Vouchers, Meal Vouchers, Horse-Racing Tickets, Go-Kart Vouchers & Fuel Vouchers. We will soon be sending out a list of lots and if you are not able to make the evening please place a sealed bid in on any item that takes your fancy! We will have some extra items on our PTFA Facebook page that can be bid on, so keep checking in.

A big thank you to all parents that have donated lots and raffle prizes! Our raffle will take place after the Auction—raffle prizes consist of vouchers, wine, chocolates, games, wallets, bags, pampering products and various other little knick-knacks.
5 strips of raffle tickets (£1/strip) are attached to this letter. Please could you sell them to family and friends – more tickets are available from Mrs Massey, St Andrew’s School Office if you suddenly start shifting them faster than Lord Sugar’s Apprentices!

There is a prize for the family who sells the most tickets: a big box of chocolates and a bottle of Prosecco!
Please return all money and tickets to the school – with a name and contact number on the back of each ticket by Wednesday, 22nd November.
