Past Events

November ’16, Our biggest fundraising event of the year was another success.  Great stalls, fantastic raffle and much more was on offer.  Our event sponsors were Cotswold Lettings & Sales from Chipping Norton. The Cooperative from Chipping Norton kindly donated the refreshments for the evening and even sent 2 members of staff to look after the refreshment stall for the evening.  We raised a fantastic £871.22.  Thank you to everyone for your support. We are already planning next years event!

October 2016, we were so happy to have been awarded a grant of £2,400 from Chipping Norton Town Council.  This will be used to make some amazing improvements to our playground – we can’t wait for the work to start in Easter 2017.

October 2016 saw those brains working hard!  Tim Busby kindly did us some quiz sheets to sell.  We raised £54 from this – thank you Tim.

September 2016, we were so grateful to the Cooperative in Chipping Norton for making us their nominated Charity for September. From their ‘Good Cause Fund’ (made from the sale of the plastic carrier bags), we received £480.97. – Thank you so much.

November 2015 we held our annual Christmas Shopping Evening. It was a huge success and we raised £1436.45. We were very lucky to once again have Cotswold Lettings of Chipping Norton as our event sponsor – Thank you.

May 2015 everyone was invited to a fantastic 70′s disco. It was kindly organised by a group of parents from Pre-School.  Everyone that went had a fantastic time and £900 was made on the evening. With the money raised, toys and equipment for the children was purchased – Thank you to everyone involved.

In March 2015, we had a ‘Frozen’ party at the Over Norton Village Hall. The children loved it and not only was it so lovely to see all their faces when Elsa and Olaf arrived, we raised £150 too.

December 2014, our Pre-School children helped raise £24 by creating some wonderful Christmas cards. They were professionally printed so parents could buy them and share with friends and family, showing off their children’s artistic talent.
