£5,000 raised – Spectacular Christmas Fayre

Drum roll please…we’re delighted to tell you that our Christmas Fayre raised a fabulous £5000!
This was achieved by your generosity as well as a wonderful donation from SSE as part of their match funding programme. Thanks to Burnside parents Julie, Chris and Jen who work for SSE and made this possible for our fabulous school fundraising. We’re so grateful to them, to you, to SSE!
Every penny of the money raised will go towards enhancing the school experience for each and every pupil at Burnside Primary from P1 through to P7. This includes funding things like school trips, the library, panto, Grow 73 and much much more.
Thank you to everyone who came along on Saturday – we appreciate your support more than we can say, Thanks also to the small team of parent volunteers who turned this year’s event around in just over two months. It was pretty full on and we’ll look ahead to what we can do in 2020 at the start of the year. For now, rest!
If you have any ideas how we can build on the success of this year and make next year’s Christmas Fayre bigger and better, we’d love to hear from you.
Thank you one and all. We’re over the moon

£866 raised – Fantastic Friday Quiz Night!

A fantastic night was had by all who came along to Friday’s Quiz Night at the Cambuslang Rugby Club!
In what was a hotly contested competition, the winners were ‘We’re Not Witty’ who won by 1 and half points (don’t forget the half point!) Congratulations to them once again.
And this year’s wooden spoon winners were ‘Philippa’s Wonderland’…better luck next time ladies!
We’ll pop up some pics from Friday later tonight.
And on top of lots of laughs we also raised an incredible £866 which will go towards funding things like free school trips, the Christmas panto and much more.
Thank you everyone for your support.
Our next big fundraising event will be the Christmas Fayre on the 23rd November and plans are already afoot for some unforgettable social events in the New Year. Watch this space!
