We would really like to see some new faces - don’t worry you don’t have to commit to anything regular if you don’t want to. Maybe you have some ideas to help us raise money so that we can continue to give our support to the children. Maybe you’re into baking and you could help us by baking a cake and donating it to our monthly cake raffle. It might be that you could spare a few hours of your time helping out at a disco. Anything you could do would be invaluable to us. If you can’t do any of these then please continue to support us to raise money through the school discos, cake raffles, Christmas and Summer Fairs and Mother’s and Father’s Day Gifts.

If you would like to help in any way, please leave your details at reception and someone from SWAF, will get in contact with you.

We look forward to seeing you.
