Thank you to those of you who are helping out this evening, please can helpers arrive 10 minutes before start times so there are enough volunteers on site before doors open.

I’d like to say a great big thank you to everyone who came along to the autumn disco last Thursday. Well done to all the volunteers and organisers for helping to make such a successful event; and a huge thank you to all our wonderful children who came along and enjoyed a fun evening. It was a really busy disco, and we raised £264 for school!

All the children were courteous, polite, and full of smiles; it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of.

If you’d like to get involved with Friends of Charlesworth School, please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you!
