Easter Egg Bingo- 24th March 2018

posted 26 Mar 2018, 14:12 by Tracey Richards   [ updated 26 Mar 2018, 23:18 ]

Such a lot of fun was had at this years' Easter Egg Bingo! We had a huge table full of delicious eggs for the children to win, many going home with 2, 3 or even 4 eggs! It was great to see the parents getting into the competitive spirit too, hands held high for their share of mini eggs! 
Just in case there wasn't enough sugar (!)the PTA made the decision to open the tuck shop this year, which went down really well. 
As always, loads of 'Thank yous'- firstly to all of our helpers (grown ups and children!) that helped us in various ways; anyone doing the fast paced job of handing out the mini eggs to our winners, those helping on the tuck stall, Oli Griffin for being a FANTASTIC Bingo caller and our First Aid volunteers, plus of course anyone that helped clear up afterwards. It really is appreciated and we are so grateful to you all for sparing your precious weekends to help us.
We received an overwhelmingly generous amount of eggs from parents, so again thank you. And also a massive thank you to our very supportive Local Supermarkets for their donations of eggs and vouchers;
Co-op Crowthorne 
Waitrose Yateley and Sandhurst 
Tesco Express Crowthorne 
Tesco Meadows 
And very generous donations from Mars.

We hope the children all had as good time as we did organising our first Easter Eggs Bingo! We made a £739.45 profit, brilliant!

Thanks to everyone who helped, attended or otherwise supported our Christmas Fayre.  It was a great success, with many getting the chance to meet Santa in his amazing grotto (photos below) and update him of their gift requirements for this year.  Lots of games were played, items purchased, food and drink consumed, prizes won & much festive entertainment enjoyed.  

Thanks also to our sponsor, Michael Hardy Estate Agents, to our advertisers in the programme, and to those that contributed raffle prizes and other donations to the event.  

We recorded a healthy profit of £3,793.79, taking our total festive earnings to an impressive £4,458.

Sincere thanks to our friends at Wokingham West Round Table, who again brought the magic of Christmas to the streets around Oaklands Schools.  The festive tunes blasted down the ears of local residents brought many out to meet Santa and donate to Oaklands PTA - the looks of wonder and joy on their little faces made it all worthwhile ... and I think some of the kids enjoyed it too.  Boom!  Boom!

Thanks to everyone who turned out to collect donations.  Especially big thanks to the Cluzels for organising the evening and to John Nance for sitting on his backside and being unceasingly cheerful.  We collected £247 for the PTA - a great result!

We had great fun joining the Crowthorne traders on the High Street with our eclectic offer of popcorn, Xmas Puds, light-up tat, putty, Lucky Lollies & prosecco.  Something for everyone there & business was brisk, netting us a fantastic profit of £417.  

Well done & thanks to everyone who helped out & contributed to an excellent village event.  Special thanks to Newman's, who provided power for our popcorn machine, and to the Crowthorne Trader's Association for organising a very worthwhile evening & a great kick-off to the festive period.

Everyone seemed to have a lot of chocolatey fun, with the bingo-lingo in full flow, and the resplendence of new caller, Mr Boomer, rivalled only by the shiny new PTA uniforms.
