Quiz Night 2018

Stuart and Oonagh Maltby took over the Quiz Master role this year and we think the event went down well.  Everyone had a good evening at the Shirland Miners Welfare.  The Winners of the Wine, Chocolates and Voucher for a meal at Nando's were the 'Swiss Villans' with an impressive 77 points.  The winners of the wooden spoons this year were the 'Bullawayo Birds', however there were only two people on the team so we think they did a fine job!! £94.60 was raised towards PTFA funds.


Festive Sales & workshop

The Festive sales which ran after celebration assemblies in December raised over £250, along with our Reindeer Dust workshop which raised £127.50. Thank you.


Christmas Raffle 2017 - £323.86 raised!

This year there were a number of prizes that made an impressive Christmas Raffle including the main hamper prize and the 2 First Class tickets to London.  The picture below shows all the prizes laid out ready for the draw.  Thank you for supporting this yearly event.
