WHERE: The school canteen
WHAT: VOLUNTEER HERE
Santa does his best, but he’s stressed. He’s got a few backroom staff, a couple of IT geeks, nine smelly reindeer, plus a factory full of overworked elves, but they’re tiny and on zero hours contracts.
Santa needs our help with Mr Franceschi’s Christmas list, because he’s asking for a sack of iPads. That’s what Downs Juniors needs (to replace some that are running down) and not just so the kids can watch Dan TDM or play Minecraft like they do at home. No, the school needs them so the kids can learn history and geography and literature and respect for their elders and not to bully their parents and… Loads!
So how can you help? I’m glad you asked. You can volunteer to help at the Winter Fair on December 9th after school. We need you to bake, donate a raffle prize, run a stall, help in the kitchens – something! Anything! Just help by filling in the lovely VOLUNTEER FORM
And don’t think you get out of it if you don’t believe in Santa or Jesus, because everyone believes in Winter (if not then try going out in shorts). So if Hanukkah is your thing, or Kwanzaa or Diwali or Pagan Yule or Liz at 3pm then volunteer, and show the world that Winterval is about generosity of spirit. Ho Ho Hope you sign up.
PS: Non uniform day in return for chocolate donations for the EPIC chocolate-lucky-dip-TOMBOLA confirmed as Weds 7 December.
