We are holding a family fun day in memory of Elliot on Saturday 7th July from 12 noon to 5pm. Admission will be £1.00 per person and all proceeds from the day will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

There will be various stalls including, tombola, face painting, crafts, candy floss, ice cream, food and drink, a cake stall, inflatables etc. A selection of classic cars will also be on display including a Rolls Royce, Aston Martin and a Mustang. There will be various activities to take part in such as, Wellie Wanging, target golf, zorb football and not forgetting the “sponge a teacher” stall (volunteers needed!!).

There will be entertainment in the arena throughout the afternoon along with a raffle with some amazing prizes ranging from West End theatre tickets to an MOT at a local garage.

We would be most grateful for any help and support that you feel able to give. Maybe bake a cake for the cake stall or provide a bottle for the tombola stall? We are also looking to borrow a gazebo for the day, so if you can help, please let us know.

Please come along to support us and have a fun day.

Bottles can be dropped off at Student or Main Reception but if they contain alcohol we can only accept them from an adult as students are not allowed to bring alcohol into school.
