Trail : home / FOGS (PTA) : 'The Secret Xmas Gift Room' - Fundraiser

The Secret Xmas Gift Room...

It was back for 2016!  Following the success of last year’s fundraiser, FOGS  once again be converted the school library into a Mini Gift Shop where the children could go and choose to buy a surprise gift for mums, dads, grandparents or other grown ups.  These gifts left the room wrapped, labelled & ready to go under the tree! 

Great effort and time went into obtaining some great gifts  - each wrapped gift was priced at just £3.00.

How does it work?

  • Manned by FOGS volunteers, the room is decorated with a variety of presents displayed on a table (just like a shop).
  • Having paid in advance and placed their orders, the children come to the library in small groups and choose their gift(s) from the display + complete a gift label. note: the volunteers have a record of gifts that each child has ordered.
  • Wrapped gifts are then taken home & put under the tree for Christmas Day!
