South Africa 2019 - September Fundraising Update

Thanks to all of the parents who have contributed to the fundraising in September:-

  • The 'Coffee and Treat' stall has been a success achieving over £150 in week one and £105 in week two.
  • The stall is also selling umbrellas (£22) and key rings (£1) so please encourage others to purchase as both make great Christmas presents.
  • Mr Peter Bucknall, Mr Paul Whitehead and I ran a taxi service on Saturday 29 September for the Crescent 70th celebration hosted at Princethorpe, which added £300 to the fundraising kitty for September.

Future events:- 

Mr Ian Thomas is leading the fundraising for the hospitality package at the Ricoh arena for the Wasps vs Leinster European Cup fixture on 20 January 2019. The deadline for tickets for this event is October half term, so if you are interested in attending please contact him at
The return of 'The Tower Abseil' has been calendared again for the girls and the date is Wednesday 3 April 2019.

If you are interested in sponsoring the tour please email me at and I will send you some information with regards to what has happened in the past. We have been lucky enough to have some sponsors support us with vary amounts from £750 through to £4,000 for different packages, so if you are interested in having your company’s logo on an item of tour clothing, please do let me know.

Many thanks for your support and I will update you on how October goes!
