Christmas Fayre!



Volunteers - we need you!


We need volunteers to run the fayre on the day - slots last two hours (11.30-13.30 or 13.30-15.30). We have a variety of slots left - from the tombolas and books stalls to craft tables and mums and dads stall.


We also need help setting up the evening before. On Friday afternoon and evening we will need to prepare the hall, 8 classrooms, the reception area and the dining hall. As many hands as possible are always appreciated. Arrive from 2pm. We will put on a movie for the children and refreshments are available.


Please get in touch with Hayley at volunteers@foics.org if you can help.

Cakes and Mince Pie Donations


We need stock for our refreshments stall - homemade and shop bought cakes or mince pies are always welcome. Please drop them off at reception from Thursday 29th November right up to the start of the fayre. We also need:


  • Luxury chocolate and treats for our Treat Tombola

  • Wines, bubbles and spirits for our Bottle Tombola

  • Luxury gifts for our Mums and Dads Stall


Matched Funding


If you work for a company that supports matched funding, please do let us know as this is an extremely valuable and no hassle way of raising money for the children. Last year we were able to add £1,500 to the Fayre total through 3 parents supporting us. If you want to discuss this, get in touch with Sophie at treasurer@foics.org.
