Thanks to everyone who supported the Mile End PTA Summer Picnic last Thursday. It was a great success and the weather made it an especially lovely evening for all to enjoy.
Our Highland Games theme provided us with some really fun activities including throw the wellie, toss the caber and splat the haggis. Well done to Stirling and Crathes who won house points as winner and runner up in the Tug of War competition!
Our Highland dancers and drama students provided us with some wonderful Scottish entertainment, and of course adults were able to enjoy some delicious Scottish ales along with our other Scottish foodie delights!
A special thanks to all of you who helped out on the night. The event simply couldn’t run without your support. We extend our gratitude to Miss Sheppard and her school staff who supported us in planning and running the event.
We also say a huge thank you to all our friends, businesses and partners in the community who donated raffle prizes and made other invaluable contributions to our fundraising effort. Your support was invaluable and is greatly appreciated.
We will shortly be able to announce the final amount raised however indications are we have raised well over £5,500 – a fantastic sum!
See you all next year!
