Kellett Ball - Help needed please!
 
Our next big social and fundraising event is the Kellett Ball on Saturday 3 June 2017. Always a highlight of the school calendar, this year’s Ball promises to be bigger and more fun than ever before with the theme to be announced soon. Watch this space!
 
The Parents’ Committee fundraising efforts in previous years have been used to buy a number of great resources across the Prep and Senior schools including: theatre seating, choir risers, Kobo eReaders, iPads, a 3D printer, cooking and play equipment, story sacks, masks, and much more.
 
In order to make the event a success, we do rely on donations of time, skills and prizes from individual parents and companies with connections to the school. We would really appreciate your support, particularly if you can donate in the following ways:
 
Skills
We are looking for a graphic designer or anyone with a working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator (or similar) who can work with the team producing the event programme. Our previous designer has now moved on from the school, so we would love to hear from anyone with these skills. Please email Natasha Lloyd at natasha_lloyd@hotmail.com if you can help.
 
If you are involved in set design/production, or lighting or prop hire or have any contacts in the industry, the decoration team would be very grateful for your support. Please contact Fiona Fleetham at fionafleetham@mac.com.
 
We certainly have some very talented bakers among the Kellett community, as the Great British Bake Off contest at the last school fair will attest! If you can donate your skills in this area, please contact Fiona as above. Likewise, we are looking for advice from a mixologist. Again, if you have skills here please do get in touch!
 
Prizes
Our Live and Silent auctions at previous events have been fantastic fundraisers and we have been fortunate to have had some amazingly generous donations from Kellett parents. Prizes have included week long stays in amazing holiday homes around the world, Cup Final tickets, hard-to-source concert tickets, helicopter rides and so on.
 
If you (or a contact) have any prize donations, please get in touch with fundraising team members Alex Dickson Leach at alex@bloomandgrowasia.com or Lucy Hudson at lucy@bloomandgrowasia.com
