A big thank you to all those who attended the big breakfast on Sunday 17th March. The day started off dry and bright from 9am when people started coming through the doors at the village hall. There was a choice of continental and/or full English being supplied by a team of helpers. As the breakfast was running until 1pm, we had a steady flow of people coming through all morning. It was lovely to see the village come together, and I think I can say everyone enjoyed themselves and had a good catch up over an endless supply of tea, coffee and toast. My thanks to all those who helped with running the breakfast; it was a great team effort! I also thank all those who couldn’t attend but gave donations.
Our total raised was just over £500. I don’t have a date yet, but we will be having another one soon.
The Little Giants Preschool has had a busy month, starting off with World Book Day and an Usborne Books sponsored listen. The children came dressed as characters from their favourite books and have been collecting sponsorship for how long they have listened to stories for a week. The total amount raised will go towards new books for the preschool and a book for each child. We held a parents evening over 2 nights for parents/ carers to hear about their child’s progress. A fundraising Big Breakfast on Sunday 17th was a huge success and well supported. The Royal Oak held a quiz that evening and, very kindly donated £80 raised that evening. We held a well supported quiz at Herrison Hall, Charlton Down with a huge raffle organised by our fundraising team. The Preschool’s Open Day was on Saturday 30th March, all were very welcome to come and see for themselves what a lovely little preschool we have in Cerne Abbas.
Thank you so much to everyone that came along last night to the first Little Giants Quiz night. Your generosity and wonderful company was very much appreciated. Thank you also for so many of you who helped us to set up and pack away. You raised a huge £485 for the Little Giants Pre-School and we are very grateful
