Dear Parents,

A HUGE thank you for all your support for our upcoming Centenary Ball on 9th March, 2019.  Can you believe we have only a little over 7 weeks before the event!!

We currently have only ONE TABLE LEFT to go, so please do let us know if you wish to attend.  Even if you were thinking you’d like to attend, but not quite sure you can muster up a whole table, do get in touch to discuss your options.

A reminder on ticketing details:

  • Saturday 9th March 2019, Friends of Squirrels will be hosting our Centenary Ball at the Bank of England Sports Centre, Roehampton.
  • Timings: 1830 – 0100
  • Tickets are £110 each
  • If you are able to pull together a table of 10 guests, please nominate a table host, who will be required to provide a list of all the names on his / her table, along with a cheque for £1100, made payable to ‘Friends of Squirrels’

Please get in touch with Yuzi Chen (, for any ticket enquiries.

We will aim to distribute tickets after the half-term, along with further information about our Auction Prizes.

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 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!

Yuzana Chen,

Chair, Friends of Squirrels Ball Committee
