The great Marsden Gala countdown has begun!

Preparations are well under way for the gala next month!

Donations are flooding into the old gym, but there is still room for plenty more – clothes, furniture, Manchester, books, toys, music, crockery, cutlery, plants, exercise equipment – anything your family has grown out of or no longer needs will be gratefully accepted. The Old Gym is open for drop offs Mon-Fri 7.30am - 3.30pm and Sundays 10.30am-12.00pm. We are keen to welcome more volunteers to our team to help with:
  • Baking for the cake stall, sweet stall and healthy treats stall
  • Preserving for the deli stall
  • Logistics to help set up and clean up on gala day
We also need over 50 more helpers for gala day, so If you haven't already volunteered to work on a stall please do. 

The tombola is great fun when there are lots of good prizes. We need around 700 items -  small containers/packets/bags of lollies, toiletries, stationery, toys etc. Students earn Class and House points for each item they bring. Tombola donations will be collected between 20 February and 3 March so start collecting prizes to make this stall a massive hit with the girls again this year! 

Designer Clothing
Designer Clothing will once again have their pre-sale events on the Friday and Saturday before the gala. Watch out for more information, we've had some great pieces donated already. You won't want to miss it!

Please get in contact if you would like to join our volunteer team – or if there is anything you would like to know. Taking part in gala preparations is a fantastic way to meet other members of the school community and have a lot of fun as well. Thank you so much to all the families that have already been hard at work over the holidays preparing for the gala. You are amazing!
