On Saturday 9th March 2019, Friends of Squirrels will be hosting our Centenary Ball at the Bank of England Sports Centre, Roehampton.  We are excited to announce that the tickets for the Ball will go on sale on Monday 10th December at 10am for £110 per person.

Ticket applications

  • Tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis.  There are a limited amount of tables available, so please ensure you email as close to 10am onwards as possible, to not miss out!  (At the previous Ball, tickets sold out within hours!)
  • Ticket applications will be accepted for complete tables of 10 only.  Please nominate a table host to submit the application, providing a list of all the guests’ names in order to avoid duplicate applications.  Only one table per host, so no block booking please.
  • Please email (not before 10am, as these applications will be discounted), with the reference: CENTENARY SPRING BALL 2019 TICKETS.  No applications accepted before the sale date and time.
  • Successful applicants will be contacted directly, and will then be required to submit one cheque per table, made payable to “Friends of Squirrels”, for the total amount of £1100 (10 tickets at £110 each), via the school office, by Thursday 13th December 2018.  Payments not received by this date will result in your table being released.

As FOS only organise a ball once every three years, and the fact that this particular Ball is a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to celebrate our school’s 100th Birthday, be sure not to miss out on what is sure to be another unforgettable evening!

Should you need any help with table planning, or have numbers slightly over or under, please contact Yuzana (Yuzi) Chen on the email above.

We do hope that we can count on your support for what promises to be a truly wonderful evening and a great fundraising opportunity both for the school and for our nominated charity, the cardiac wing of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Auction Prizes

We currently have some amazing auction prizes we can’t wait to share with everyone!  In the meantime, as with previously successful Balls, we look for kind and generous parents and local businesses who can support our fundraising event, by offering any ‘big-ticket’ items.  If you or anyone you know can kindly donate towards our auction to help raise money to our great cause, please do get in touch with any of the Ball Committee members / FOS (who can direct you to one of us)!  For some ideas of what we are looking for:

Can you or your business donate items or an experience?

– Do you have access to a holiday home, either abroad or in the UK?

– Do you have sporting tickets or access to a box (or via your company?)

– Dinner for 2, 4, 6 or more?

– Sought after theatre-tickets?

Do you have a famous family member or friend that you could ask?

– Are they in the entertainment industry? A backstage tour, TV/film/music studio tour or ticket to a live event would be an amazing prize.

– Are they a writer, poet or artist? Perhaps they could offer a one-to-one experience?

– Are they a sports personality? Could they offer a game of tennis, a round of golf or hospitality tickets?

Please do get in touch if you think you can help?  Any questions in the meantime, do feel free to ask us!

With kind regards,

Yuzana Chen,

Chair, Friends of Squirrels Ball Committee
