The idea is that everyone who wants to be involved is given one name (which you keep to yourself) and throughout the year you can leave your friend little gifts/quotes/pick-me-ups/jokes etc. as often as you like in their pigeon hole, classroom or you can give them to young people to deliver.
Hopefully this will help keep each other smiling especially as the long dark nights draw in.

For those of you who are not familiar with the Club, it is run by the Social Committee to help raise funds for staff events. Throughout the year these funds contribute towards cards, flowers and gifts for staff on occasions such as births, bereavements and retirements. This is a really nice way for us as a staff to let our colleagues know we are thinking of them.
The 100 Club involves a monthly draw with two winners. In previous years the first winner has received £20 and the second winner £10. The worth of the prizes very much depends on the number of staff who participate in the Club each year. To join the Club all you need to do is pick a number(s) from 1-100 (first come first served), and pay £10 per number. This number will last you for the whole year.
For more information, please contact Susan Forrest.
