Macmillan Coffee Morning

15th September 2021

Dear Parents,


It's a tradition at Tweedmouth West to host a Macmillan Coffee Morning each year, this is usually one of our biggest fundraising events that the Year 4 children organise and prepare for. Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances we will not be able to do our coffee morning in the usual way. However, we feel strongly that we would still like to raise as much money as we can for this charity so the Year 4 children have planned to hold a bingo event instead.


Our bingo event will take place during the school day on Friday 24th September. Mrs Robertson will join all the classes virtually and will be our bingo caller.


There will be a prize for the first child in each class who gets the first line, then a prize for the child who gets a full house in each class.


If you would like your child to participate it costs £1 for one bingo card, children in Year 3 & Year 4 are able to have up to a maximum of 5 bingo cards (£5).


In addition to the bingo we are also going to do our usual:


  1. Guess the name of the teddy bear
  2. Guess the teddy bears birthday
  3. How many sweets are in the jar

Your child can participate in all three for a price of £1.


A slip of paper will come home with your child this week, if you want to enter please return the completed slip with £1 in a named envelope.


A photograph of all three prizes will go on the school website and facebook page by the end of the week, a link to the pictures will be shared with you.


The Y4 children will be organising this event so it would be helpful to make sure envelopes and entry slips are clear.


If you are able to donate a prize or if you work somewhere that would donate a small prize e.g. box of chocolate for the children to win this would be much appreciated.


I would like to thank you for your support and hope we can raise as much as we can for Macmillan Cancer Support.


Kind regards

Mrs Poole
