FYMS are organising a sponsored swim to raise money for a climbing wall. All children are invited to take part using the sponsorship information below. We are able to claim gift aid which will add an extra 25% to money raised.
All children in Pre-Prep will be offered the chance to see how far they can swim in 30 minutes. For Pre-Prep children (Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) this will be during their swimming lessons during the first half of the summer term.
Prep Children (Years 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8) will be given 60 minutes to show what they can do. A sponsored swim day will take place during summer half term on Friday 2nd June and children may choose a time to come and do their swim. Children who are unable to attend on Friday 2nd June can arrange an opportunity during club time to do their session.
We ask that children seek sponsorship for their swim. Please note there is no set distance required. If children are just starting their swimming journey then they can challenge themselves to achieve a width or a length. If they are a competent swimmer then they will get a chance to show how many lengths they can do in the set time.
FYMS’ target is to raise £20,000 for the project. Many hands make light work! Below is a guide to how the target could be achieved based on 200 children taking part?
200 people raise £10.00 each = £2,000
200 people raise £25.00 each = £5,000
200 people raise £50.00 each = £10,000
200 people raise £100.00 each = Target £20,000
We hope your child is able to take part. When trying to find sponsorship we ask that you find as many people who are not directly connected to Yateley Manor for example family, friends and work colleagues, or extended family members.
Please follow the instructions on the sponsorship form so we can collect the gift aid.
