Latest Update – SAPA News
18th June 2019
On Friday 14th June we had our Summer Party at Bowdon Rugby Club. Thank you to everyone who came and so kindly supported our fundraising efforts, and we hope you had a really lovely evening. Thank you so much to the people and businesses who donated prizes for our prize raffle. We’ll let you know how much money we raised next week.
SAPA Annual General Meeting
Thank you to everyone who came to our AGM. You will be able to read the minutes on our website in a few weeks if you couldn’t make it (www.sapa.org.uk).
In the year since 1st July 2018, SAPA raised just over £10,000, a little up on last year, and we would like to thank everyone for supporting all our events and helping raise this incredible amount.
This year, we will be giving at least £7,700 each to the Prep and College to spend on our boys. The Prep plans to spend it (and £5,500 left over from last year’s SAPA money) on playground equipment for both the infants and juniors; the College will spend it (and the £10,000 we gave them last year) on buying new computers and upgrading existing ones.
Unfortunately, we have some sad news. No one has stepped forward to take on the role of Chair of SAPA or Deputy Chair. We thought about disbanding SAPA, but the schools feel very strongly that this should not happen and they value the work of SAPA in encouraging parents to get more involved with the schools and also, of course, the money helps a lot too. Luckily, all the other committee positions have been filled, and the committee has agreed to try to carry on without a chair. It’s not too late though to step forward… if you would like to help SAPA and think you could be the next chair of SAPA, please contact the current temporary chair of SAPA urgently at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be thrilled if you could help.
At the AGM, a draw was made of the SAPA 100 Club and the winners are:
1st Prize – £42.50 – D Mulholland
2nd Prize – £28.33 – J & S Middleton
3rd Prize – £14.17 – M & DL Ainscough
The next SAPA 100 Club draw will be in October 2019 and then every 4 months. If you want to know more about the SAPA 100 Club, email email@example.com.
N.B. This applies to any/all SAPA events …. if you can help us and work for a company that has a match-funding policy, please ask them if they are willing to match fund whichever event it is.
