Friends of Alban - Future Events
The Friends of Alban hold various fund-raising events throughout the year and here are the next ones that we are getting involved with. They are always for a good cause - namely helping the school to provide the things that are just outside budget - but will enhance the children's learning and social experiences whilst at Alban.
Wednesday 6th July - The Alban Summer Concert - Friends of Alban support this by providing refreshments in the interval - it's always a great fun evening and we get to see some of the concert as well! Volunteers needed please.
Thursday 7th July - Alban School Disco - Friends of Alban provide a 'shop' for the children to buy refreshments and we also sell novelty glow sticks. We also run a raffle. Again, a fun (noisy) evening with volunteers needed.
Sponsored Fun Run 2016
Dear Parents/ Carers,
Friends of Alban hold various fund raising events throughout the year.
On Friday 23rd September 2015, we are holding our annual SPONSORED FUN RUN.
The run will begin at 1:45pm and end at 3:00pm.
Every child will be expected to participate in this event and we hope as many as possible will be sponsored. Parents/ Carers are most welcome to join in if they wish. The more the merrier! If you would like to participate in the Fun Run please fill in the request form (these will come out after the summer break) and you will be sent a sponsorship form. If you do not wish to run but would like to come along and support, please do. We would be very grateful if anyone would like to offer their services as either lap counters or at the water station. Again, please let us know by filling in the request form and returning it to the school. If you would like to get sponsorship as a helper, please request a sponsorship form also. To make the occasion even more fun the children can choose to run in fancy dress - theme to be confirmed (poss 70's), and we will be awarding prizes for the best costumes. Please remember that costumes must be appropriate and suitable for running outside.
On the day children will be asked to bring in their sponsorship forms and their costume and/ or water bottle in a named plastic bag. There will be arrangements for them to be able to refill their bottles during the race.
We hope the children will be encouraged to gain a number of sponsors from their family and friends, although we obviously do not want them to pressure anyone or to ask people they do not know well.
Sponsor forms need to be brought to the run so that the number of laps they complete can be recorded. All monies collected should be handed into their class teacher in a named and sealed envelope, date for this to be confirmed. Every child who runs and returns sponsorship money by the agreed date, will be put into a class draw making them eligible to win a £5.00 gift voucher and a prize in the Grand Draw.
