Tombola

We're also looking for donations of chocolate and bottles for a tombola.

If you have anything that you would like to donate, please bring it along on the morning of the competition or hand it in at training.

We're grateful for all donations no matter how big or small.

Parent Helpers

It takes a big team of officials and volunteers to run athletics competitions. Parent helpers are needed to help officiate the field events and relay changeovers (no experience necessary). If enough people volunteer then everyone only needs to help for an hour or so on the day.

If you're available to help, please speak to Alistair or add your name on the entry form.
