To raise some money for the children's special 'extras' in the absence of being able to hold any fundraising events this past year...

by Westholme Association in Blackburn, England, United Kingdom

Dear Friends and Parents

In the last year, the Westholme Association (we are the Westholme Parent / Teacher Association for those who don’t know) have been unable to hold any events such as the Spring and Christmas Fairs, Balls, termly Uniform Sales. These events are where we raise funds for those special extras that the school and children can request and enjoy.

We need your help to generate £6,500 this year to be able to continue providing the children with those special extras or we will have to cut what we fund.  

Below is just a small selection of the items we have bought over recent years with the funds:-

After school activity resources 

Cricket practice nets and football goal posts

Discos (who could forget Taz!) 

A Drone

Drum Kits

Gym Equipment 

Modern Language Plays

Live Chicks 

Playground equipment 

Prizes for Competitions

Sewing Machines

SPHERO IT equipment  

Sports Award Trophies and  Hoodies for the Y6 leavers

We were also able to contribute to the energy efficient lighting installed in the Croston Theatre. 

 We think you’d agree that we have funded an amazing range of items to benefit all. 

As fundraising events have been on hold since last March and will be for the forthcoming term, we really do need your help. We have decided to hold a VIRTUAL PRIZE DRAW with CASH PRIZES ONLY! No fluffy toys or tins of peaches this year! 

With your help we can continue to fund items for your child/children to enjoy whilst also giving you the chance to win a cash prize. 10% of monies raised from this Prize Draw will be sent to 'Place2Be' an amazing charity which provides mental health support to pupils, families and staff in UK schools.

The Prizes are..... 

 First Prize - £150.00

 Second Prize - £75.00

 Third Prize – £50.00

To enter simply purchase your "ticket" here for £15.00 and you can buy multiple tickets for an increased chance of winning OR donate more if you are able. Entries will be accepted without a donation or pledge, simply email us at the WA ([email protected]) stating your name and email address you wish to be contacted on.

The winners will be announced in the Westholme Weekly on 18th June 2021.

If you are able to, we hope you will support us. We also look forward to a time when we can see you at future fundraising and social events. 

Thank you and Good Luck!
