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.
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.
