The Secret Gift Room Fundraisers...

Christmas Gifts

It was back for 2017!  Following the success of last year’s 'Christmas Gift' fundraiser, FOGS  once again 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.

'Someone Special' Gifts for Mothering Sunday 2018

In celebration of women the children would like to show their appreciation for this Mothering Sunday, FOGS are opening a gift room in school.

On Friday 9th March children, siblings together then a class at a time, will have the chance to choose from a selection of gifts for £3.50 each. They will decorate a name tag and take the gift home hidden in their school bag to surprise someone special to them on Mother’s Day.

The children love participating in the secret gift rooms and always put a lot of effort into choosing what they think are the right gifts, so please do support this lovely FOGS fundraiser.
