UNPLUG: Fundraising for Farms for City Children
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am delighted to be able to write to you to introduce the upcoming ECS UNPLUG, which will take place on Friday 15th February 2019, in aid of Farms for City Children, our chosen local charity of the year.
In the words of founder Sir Michael Morpurgo…
“Unplug is a chance to turn off your screen, look up and just think what might happen. You might bump into an old friend, pick up a pen and write that story you’ve been meaning to, or simply just talk to a friend. The possibilities are endless.”
We are challenging all pupils and staff to take a tech-free day, from dawn to dusk. However, they may wish to extend the challenge over the weekend, or even the whole of half term!
Each member of our community will be invited to take part and encouraged to seek sponsorship from their families and friends. All monies raised will go directly to the charity.
To add an extra layer of excitement, we are challenging the four houses of ECS to see who can raise the most money! This will be the first of many inter-house fundraising competitions this year, so your support is hugely appreciated!
