The Friends of Queen’s Crescent is a charity raising much needed funds for the school as well as supporting the wider community, e.g. organising food bank donations, hampers for local families and outdoor socially-distanced Bubble Bach concerts for children within current government guidelines.
We were looking forward to our traditional Summer Fayre as the last one was held two years ago. Unfortunately, due to current restrictions, it can not go ahead.
We are still launching our popular Summer Raffle virtually. Anyone can take part by sending us an email by 2pm on Thursday 22nd July, 2021. We have amazing prizes to win and prizes are being added all the time, including a Dyson Supersonic hairdryer worth £299.99, a Lovell’s Rest caravan stay for six in Devon £200 voucher, a Travel Counsellors hamper, a 6-month subscription to The Week Junior magazine, Taittinger Champagne, Whittard Afternoon Tea gift sets and Little Voices lessons. We’d like to say a very big thank you to all of our kind prize donors.
