Saturday 11th May 2013

The Richmond Fair, our primary fundraising event of the year, is just around the corner. It raises a huge amount of money for the Group and so it really is a question of needing all hands on deck!

The Group has made a conscious decision to run just this one main fundraiser each year so that families are not being asked repeatedly to volunteer their time in support of the Group - with school and other group commitments we understand that people can get ‘volunteered out’! However, for this one occasion, we really do need support from each and every family. It’s also a great way of meeting other families involved in your child’s section. Dads are very welcome particularly if they are handy on a BBQ!

To this end we would kindly ask each family to do the following:
  1. Turn up for your rota slot (a few minutes early so the previous shift cover can hand over
  2. Cake & Bags of Ice – bring a cake or small cakes along with you on the day when you come. These can be bought or homemade - there is a market for both. We need bags of ice to keep drinks cool.
  3. Due to a change in fair regulations we are using a gas barbecue this year so will not require any lumpwood charcoal.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday May 11th - we really can’t do it without you! And as with previous years – fingers crossed for good weather!

The rota and full letter may be downloaded from the links below.
