To everybody associated with The Friends of St Robert Southwell Charity,
We would like to thank you for your kind contributions of time and money which has made this years Christmas Fayre another huge success. With a variety of outside stalls, mulled wine and Santa’s Grotto we managed to raise over £4,000. This includes contributions from significant donors, raffle sales prior to the event and Class Christmas Cards.
For the current academic year to date, the Friends have raised over £5,500 from a variety of events, all of which we could not have done without the significant contribution from the Parents, Carers, Friends and Staff associated with St Roberts. In accordance with our mission statement this money will go a long way to enhancing our school and our children’s learning experience, especially in lieu of recent and continual government funding cuts.
We would like to have a general meeting on Saturday the 6th of January at 4pm at the Norfolk Arms (Crawley Road, Roffey, Horsham, West Sussex RH12 4NB, just down the road from school) to discuss the Christmas Fayre, to understand any concerns or suggestions you have and to discuss our plan for the rest of the year.
We would encourage all who have been associated with the Friends of St Roberts, School Representatives and those who are generally happy to lend a hand or share ideas to attend this meeting.
We would like to wish you a very happy Christmas and a prosperous and happy new year from us all and look forward to your ongoing support in 2018.
