Chocolate Bingo – Friday 24 March 2017

Another fantastic night was had at our Chocolate Bingo event on Friday 24 March 2017 – a highlight of the Spring Term!

We played two games of bingo, then people enjoyed hot dogs and jacket potatoes during the interval which was then followed by the remaining three bingo games.  Each game of bingo was played for a ‘line’ and then a ‘house’.  Winners were able to choose from the many Easter eggs donated on the day by our very generous parents and friends.

The raffle followed the bingo with prizes which included: £50 cash prize, 1 hour free bowling for a family of 6 people, Family Roller Skating Pass, Booths Gift Voucher, Cinema Voucher and Chocolate Hamper.

Our Easter Bunny was named on the night – the winning name Mitsey was picked by Caitlin Hoyle in Year 4. Well done Caitlin!

The Chocolate Bingo was very successful and St John’s CE School PTFA are proud to announce that £456.44 was raised for PTFA funds.

Thank you all so much for all your support!  We look forward to seeing you again at next year’s Chocolate Bingo!
