World Book Day- PTA Book Swap and Cake Sale

Date: 6th Mar 2017 @ 11:17am

Last week the children celebrated World Book Day with a full week of literature themed events- including author visits, dressing up as book characters, a special assembly and a book swap.  The PTA decided to join in with the fun, so on Friday at our usual tea/coffee morning we held a book swap and cake sale.

The idea was to bring along a book to swap, or if people didn't have a book to swap there were some available to buy for a small donation.  We also had a range of delicious cakes available to buy, with all proceeds going towards improving the outdoor spaces at Alma Park- in particular we are hoping to raise money to put towards the repair or replacement of the 'buddy bench' in the junior playground.

The morning was a great success- lots of people found their next read, everyone enjoyed the cake, and the icing on top was that we managed to raise £52.83 for the school.  A big thank you to everyone who made and bought cake, brought along books for the swap, and came along on the day.
