MNDA Fundraising in Memory of Mick Hackett



I want no epitaphs of profound history and all that type of thing. I contributed – I would hope they would say that, and I would hope somebody liked me.” – Brian Clough on how he would like to be remembered.



Do you remember Brian Clough?  Then you may be interested in this very special item we are auctioning along with other items for the MNDA.

This genuine ‘Brian Clough Way‘ metal road sign was specially made for the recent documentary, ‘Shaun Barker – One more time‘, and has been donated by local film director, Ashley Carter.  We are auctioning this along with other items which have been donated for our fundraising for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

A silent auction will run until 3pm on Friday 14th July.  To bid for any of these items, please follow the links to the bidding slip and bidding information below.  Your bid must be received in accordance with these rules.  Good luck everyone and a huge thank you to donors of all items in our Auction.


You can download the bidding information HERE, and the bidding slip HERE.

School Lottery Update


Many thanks to everyone who has signed up for the school lottery so far. It only costs £1 per week and the more people that are signed up, the greater the weekly prize money. There are currently 138 people signed up which means every week someone from our school community wins £40.20. Everyone entered is also in with the chance of winning a weekly £25,000 jackpot.

At the moment the lottery is generating £50 a week towards PTA funds which is great. Please spread the word.
