11th October 2013

Let us introduce ourselves. We are a local Pre-School, OFSTED and Hampshire Country Council inspected, and a registered Charity. As a charity, we are continuously fund-raising, as fees and refunding alone do not cover our running costs.

Historically, this term is where we hope to raise the most and it is also the term where we most urgently need funds as not all classes are full, all the 4 years-old having just started 'big' school in September. We make a special effort this term with fund raising, with our own nativity production and countless seasonal fund raising initiatives.

One of the most successful events is our Christmas Raffle, for which every child/parent sells tickets. The Raffle will be drawn on Tuesday 17th December at the Nativity. We also sell them on our highly popular Tombola stall at the Potley Hill Primary School Christmas Fair on 23rd November.

We will publish a list of all companies who have donated something towards the Christmas Raffle (before the deadline) which will be on the parent board at the Pre-School, sent home to our 70+ children with their raffle tickets and in the Committee Newsletter going out just before Christmas, it will also be posted on our Facebook page.

The success of our raffle is entirely dependent upon the prizes we are able to offer, and therefore the willingness to purchase our tickets. It is to this end that we are writing to you and other local businesses with the hope that you will be able to donate a suitable prize. All prizes will be given much publicity, but the top 3 will be highlighted as star prizes and printed on the raffle tickets themselves!

We will soon be arranging of our raffle tickets so if you are able to donate please call Gemma Scott-Mercer on 07815744036, email gemma@gemmascott.co.uk or write to me no later than 1st November with your details. Alternatively we can gladly arrange a collection if you are able to help.

Thank you! The children will both benefit and appreciate it if you are able to help.

May we take this opportunity of wishing you a prosperous 2014.
