  1. I am trying to contact someone with a fundraising idea I have for you and wondered if you could put me in touch with the right person I make cushions from sports kit and have done a lot for the Skinners school. (Am happy to send images but you can see some on my instagram ploff_cushions) I am guessing that you probably have a load of lost property kit that I could turn into cushions for you to sell at your ball or other events. They would cost hi £20 each but you could charge £30 … please let me know if this would be of interest and if so who I should speak to. Many Thanks. Amanda Burgess

  2. What a great idea Amanda Burgess, my son has grown out of 3 tour shirts which would look fab as pillows in his bed!
