Loreto Fundraising Committee End of Year Report 2009 - 2010
This year has been a very entertaining and busy one for the fundraising committee. We learnt many invaluable lessons on the way and we made record profits for the school.
Our aim was to have a variety of events with something for everyone. We kept costs and ticket prices to a minimum so that price was not a barrier to attendance – and it seemed to work!
The calendar of events was:
September Table Quiz
November Bag Packing in Dunnes
February Gardening Talk by Rachael Doyle of the Arboretum
April Evening with Pauline McLynn in the Set Theatre
April Car Boot Sale
The important bit, €€€
Our final profit for the year was (imaginary drum roll here) … a fantastic €7,400!
The money we raised has been used to:
- provide a water filter tap for the students so that they have free access to fresh drinking water.
- Buy a new display cabinet for the library.
- Pay for benches and landscaping of communal areas outside.
A BIG “Thank you!” to all on the fundraising committee: Pauline Purcell, Paula McBride, Suzanne Byrne, Sheila Lynch, Brenda Cooper, Jane Gilman, Francis Quigley and Miriam Rice who gave up their time and without whom the events would not have happened.
Thank you to Colm Keher and Michelle who supported us throughout.
Thank you to all the other Parents Association committee members who helped make the events a success.
Thank you to all our sponsors.
Thank you to KCLR who gave us invaluable PR.
And last, but definitely not least, thank you to Barry, the ever present and invaluable school caretaker.
Next year …
We already have a list of events ready to unveil for next year, but we are taking the summer out to mull over our ideas and enjoy the sun!?
