End of year show - " A Balloon For Granddad"
End of year show, representing what four schools and Camphill residents have achieved this year. The four schools and the residents came together to put on a show for the public called "A Balloon For Granddad" which was held in the Camphill Chrysalis Theatre on Thursday 12th July 2018. We raised £135 from the collection bucket which will be split between the schools and Camphill.
Here are some words from the teachers:
"WOW!!!! Weren’t they all wonderful yesterday"
"I wanted to say a massive thank you for allowing me to be part of it all and I very much look forward to being part of next year’s project, I am humbled and proud by all that was achieved yesterday!!"
"Debbie can you also say a personal thank you to Jade and Elin for their unwavering patience and belief in our kids who I think you will agree shone yesterday. And also to your PA Brittany who seemed to be everywhere"
"Hope you manage to get some rest now before you start again, you have earnt it"
Here are the messages from others
"Many thanks for inviting me to the GiV celebrations. A smashing do - once again tears of laughter and general ' being moved' meant that my mascara was dripping off my chin - so good to see all involved having a ball and feeling very proud of themselves."
"Can't imagine how proud you must be of those young people and of today's achievements."
£500.60 was raised through an event held in celebration of International Women’s Day at York House.
Shenley Brook End Fundraising Challenge raised £523!
The students and staff have done an amazing job managing to raise these funds which will be used to support our community volunteering projects.
The funds raised will be used to support ‘Get Involved Volunteering’ 2018.
Part of the funds will be used to buy plants and shrubs so that the young people can work to improve the garden area at York House. We will also be returning to St Francis Adoption Centre to tidy their garden, repaint fences and replace some of the perennial plants. GIV students will also be supporting Camphill, a residential community for people with physical disabilities and special needs, where we will be working on a joint community project, ending with a final performance in the theatre. These projects would not be possible without grants and fundraising efforts and we are extremely grateful to everyone who helped us raise the funds.
