With two weeks to go until the Christmas parties for our Grade 2 and 3 learners, we are appealing to our Edu Fun volunteer community for some help to raise money towards gifts for approximately 200 learners.
In previous years R100 per child has been spent on gifts. As we have so many more kids to accommodate we have tried to get donations, but it's very difficult to get items donated in such large quantities and time is running out.
If you are in a position to make a small donation towards the year-end function/gifts, our bank account details are listed below.
We are hoping to spend R50 on each child this year, but need your help because this means that we need R10 000 and any money spent on the year-end party means that we start 2018 with less money available for the actual education/teaching programme (stationery, books, printing etc.). We are trying not to dip into our already limited funds.
The Edu Fun bank details are:
Bank: FNB. Branch: Randburg. Branch Code: 254005. SWIFT code: FIRNZAJJ.
Account Name: Edu Fun. Account Number: 62242345438
We are most grateful to Tracy Swatts Whitfield, together with the AKA Sorority Inc. who will be providing the lunch and some gifts again on Monday 13th November. This is a great help!
The Tuesday volunteers have also made some lovely suggestions today as to how we can accommodate the smaller group that we work with on Tuesdays for their party on 14th November. This is both exciting for the learners and a huge help!
The actual parties are taking place on Monday 13 November for the Grade 3s and Tuesday 14 November for Grade 2s, but with the help of Gayle Ouzman, we will be doing the shopping early next week as the gifts will need to be sorted and packed. So if you can make a contribution, this week still, it would be greatly appreciated.
Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm.
