Quick Fire Donations = Mufti Day! Friday, 6 March

Next Friday, 6 March we have our Mufti Day/Quick Fire Collection Day. This is when the boys can wear Mufti in exchange for goods for our Quick Fire Raffle prizes.
 
It would be greatly received if you or your son can please bring a bag of groceries on Friday morning to the Br Sean Foyer, which will be open from 7.30am. Items such as frozen chickens, meat packs, wine, beer, chocolates, sweets, canned food, jams, teas, coffee, cookies and gourmet condiments are always a great hit. Generally, anything that will look good in the Quick Fire Raffle hampers.

If your son is bringing alcohol on the 6th of March for the Quick Fire Collection, you will need to complete this form. If you would prefer to bring the alcohol in person, we will be holding a collection on Saturday the 7th of March from 8-10am at the bottom of Gate 4.
 
Points will be given to each boy when they drop off their goodies, which will go towards their homeroom only. Triple points for wine, chicken and chocolates!  
 
The Junior and Senior homerooms that collect the most points at the end of the Fair will receive a delicious lunch as a prize.
