Year 6 Leavers’ Mass

Monday, July 16th, 2012

The Fiona Foundation supported the St John’s school and church on Sunday 15 July by providing gifts of lavender plants to each of the 53 graduating children. It was an emotional day for children and parents alike but above all it was a great celebration of the 8 happy years at the school for the children and the life long friendships that have flourished.

Football kits to order

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Many of you will have seen the Fiona Foundtion logo on the Parish football kit over the last few months. Kevin Savage is still taking orders for these – £30 in adult sizes and £20 in kids sizes. Kevin is a great supporter of the Fiona Foundation and has recently raised over £100 from various football club fund raising opportunities. He’s a top bloke!

John Fitzgerald – Edinburgh in a heatwave!

John recently completed the Edinburgh marathon on a baking hot Sunday morning. What a fantastic achievement! We are really grateful to John who marked his achievement by raising over £600 for the Fiona Foundation. Thanks

John O Hare – Chorlton’s Man of Iron

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

John recently completed the Iron Man challenge. Chorlton has witnessed his staggeringly committed training schedule over the last few months and everyone is so immensely proud of his achievement. The fact that he pulled his hamstring in the opening mile of running the marathon was, of course, no deterrent. The man eats pain for breakfast!

Summer Party Success

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

On 30 June at Manley Mere we had a fabulous day and evening. The weather was kind enough to make the adventure trail grotesquely muddy and yet warm enough for the barbecue and party to be a proper summer occasion. The kids had a great time, the adults seemed happy enough and the 50 or so of us who camped over looked suitably war torn the following morning. The raffle raised a few bob and the prizes were plentiful. Thanks go to Clare and Beth who organised the whole thing wonderfully, to all those who donated the raffle prizes and for everyone for making such an effort to join us.
