Money Matters

The recycling accounts are due to be audited soon, so I thought that, as this year has been rather difficult for me and the school's recycling centre, I would just check on the income for this half of the year and was pleased, as it amounts to £2,326.85.

With the prospect of difficult financial times ahead, the school has abandoned their ambitious plans for a multi -use play area on the meadow and are now hoping to raise just £1o,00 for a new games area. If money raised by the school's PTA is added to the recycling fund, the target should be reached by the end of the year!

There are about 60+ used cartridges packed into the boxes in the photo, all donated by local companies and ready to be collected on July 9th. Some of these businesses have been supporting our recycling centre since it opened in 1994, when this way of raising funds was a novelty
They all deserve a medal!
