Parent Council - Christmas Winners at Bell Baxter
Christmas came early for several Bell Baxter families, as winners of the Parents’ Evenings raffle organised by the Parent Council received their prizes. Top prize, a hamper brimming with festive goodies, was won by Marcus and Louise Dinsley, and a runner-up ‘pamper hamper’ was won by Katrine Voigt. Contributions for these hampers came from members of the Parent Council, Quaker Oats, and local supermarkets Tesco and The Co-op.
There were also several other smaller prizes donated by local businesses and were won by parents as follows: The Falconer Family (Royal Yacht Britannia passes); Jane Heppenstall (Maisie and Mac voucher); Liz Gibson (The Chamomile Room voucher); Leigh Sanderson (Howe of Fife Cafe voucher) and Nicola Stalker (Kettle Produce voucher).
Not to be overlooked, families of second and third year pupils, who have their parents’ evenings in February and March, will have their own raffle - with a chance to win a Scottish Hamper, as well as a varied selection of runner-up prizes.
The Parent Council thanks all parents and staff who participated in this year’s raffle, as well as the local businesses who donated such generous raffle prizes.
