Scraping it together

girl_scrapingAn massive thank you to everyone who turned up this blustery Saturday to help with preparations for Give & Gain day. Despite the enormity of beige wall facing us, we got  a lot done and people even managed to make it fun… The community that scrapes together, stays together!

Now for the really big push: Friday 16th May.  We need to borrow plenty of equipment to make maximum use of our volunteers – we can’t have helpers standing idle for want of a wheelbarrow!  Please label equipment with your child’s name and class, and hand it in to school reception.  Or if you’re bringing it on the day, please email us now so we know it’s coming.

The complete equipment list is posted below the photos.
