Spring Fundraising Events

Spring term was filled with a great mixture of fun fundraising events for our school!Starting off with a competition to help celebrate the Lunar New Year, with a competition for the children…

We had a lovely selection of lanterns and dragons displayed in the school hall.  A great effort everyone and a big congratulations to our winners!

 

Next up we had our very first virtual balloon race which took place over the February half term.  We had lots of entries and this fun virtual event manage to raise over £400 for the school!  We hope you all enjoyed it!

We also had 2 pop up shops! One for pre-loved uniform and one for World Book Day.  Thank you for supporting these – they are so good for our environment!

Last, but certainly not least, thank you to all of you who joined us for our Family Easter Bingo event!

This wasn’t just a fun night out for the whole family, we managed to raise a whopping £1,045!!

Thank you again for your continued support!

Christmas Tree Sale & Market 2023

Ho ho ho, what fun!

Thank you all for making our Christmas tree sale and market another huge success!

Our amazing friends at Hagg Farm Christmas Trees have done us proud again.  Sharing their busiest day of the season to make our event extremely special.  Our Lostock families and Bird Estate residents showed up to chose a stunning tree.

Hagg Farm Christmas Trees are once again supporting our PTA with 10% of sales on the day being donated to the school and they have so generously chosen Lostock Hall PTA as one of the 5 charities that will benefit by sharing 5% of their seasons total sales.  How amazing is that!

Our market saw a wonderful selection of bespoke items, perfect for Christmas gifts, including the fantastic art from one of our Lostock parents, JOHN SOONAYE
