A message from Jane ...

I will be swimming the English Channel in August in a team of 4, called The Soggy Bottoms.  We will be swimming the week beginning 16th August 2021.  Our team consists of Jane, Liz, Mark and Tom.  We have been training for the past 18 months and hope to make the crossing in about 15 hours.  We will be swimming in a relay, 1 hour swim slots, in turn.
We would like to raise money for Shillingstone CE Primary School.  In particular, we would like to raise money to help pay for transport to take our children to swimming lessons.  It is really important that children learn to swim and have the opportunity to enjoy being in the water. 
We would really like to organise a special sporting day, where we can inspire the children to take up a sporting activity.  It would be lovely to invite a sports coach into school to share their sporting passion with the children.

Many thanks for your support!

2021 is here and we have reset our fundraising thermometer, this year we have set our target to raise £1500! This money will go towards improving buildings and playgrounds, help fund educational field trips, special events and activities, and provide necessary resources and equipment for all the children to use.
