The Friends of Dr Challoner’s Grammar School held their AGM on Monday 6th October. The annual report highlighted the success of several events, most notably the New Parents Social Evening, the Christmas Fayre, the Grand Draw, and the Summer Ball.This year’s events have already got off to a great start with 180 attending the New Parents Social Evening which gave everyone the opportunity to meet parents of their son’s new friends. Tickets are selling fast for the Quiz Evening on October 17th.

The highlight of the evening was the presentation to Dr Fenton of a cheque for £25,000 from the Friends’ fundraising activities last year.

Special thanks were extended to Claire Fowles and Brenda English who are leaving the committee after many years’ involvement. A new committee was elected and, as always, is on the lookout for more parents who are prepared to help out with events. If you feel able to help in any way please contact Sarah Cullen, in writing, through the School office.
