The Friends of Pontesbury CE Primary School (FOPPS) are the school’s fundraising team. FOPPS is a group of school parents and carers who help raise essential funds to benefit the pupils at Pontesbury CE Primary School.
Over the past couple of years, together with staff, we have helped organise and run discos, beverage sales at sports day, the Christmas fair and a fashion show and have just set up an online second-hand uniform selling page (please see link on the school website). The funds from these have helped fund the new library, purchased a public announcement system, and more recently funded the fabulous Room 8 garden.
In current circumstances our options for fundraising is limited but we are still working hard to come up with exciting ways of raising these vital funds. With lockdown fresh in our minds we have decided to create a culinary time capsule of 2020, a way to remember the term we home-schooled, and share with each other some of the meals that nourished little tummies during the pandemic.
This is where we need your help. If you would like to be part of the FOPPS recipe book of lockdown food, we would love to see your own adapted recipes and were hoping to illustrate the book with photos of your child/ren in lockdown to make a keepsake and everlasting memory of 2020. Please be aware that all recipe books are copyrighted, so we are unable to use a recipe copied from a book.
Please email up to TWO recipes (we might not be able to feature both but will do our very best) that your children loved during lockdown. They can be savoury or sweet, ideally healthy as well as delicious. We will aim to make this a handy resource that will be reached for regularly, and, a banana bread free zone!
Along with your own simple and clear recipes (total 500 words maximum), please attach photos of how lockdown looked for your children, together with their names and ages.
Please email your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org
Recipes and photos to be received no later than Friday the 9th of October.
The books will be on sale very soon so watch this space.
Thank you in advance for your recipes. If you would like to join ‘FOPPS’, to help raise money for the school, meet new people and have lots of fun in the process, please give your details to someone in the school office and you can be added to the FOPPS WhatsApp group.
