ACE: Fundraising for Arise School – Forthcoming Events

Arise School has grown amazingly in the last few years as a result of money raised through ACE. This year, we need to raise enough money to furnish the last two classrooms, including 40 desks and chairs for each. Like all the other school furniture, these will be made locally generating work in the local community. We also need to build a second toilet block, with showers, to meet the rapidly growing number of children.

Our next fundraising event in aid of ACE is:

1. A Polish Story’: Friday, 27th April, 2018:

Below is a flyer about our next event, ‘A Polish Story’, to be held on Friday 27th, April at United Reform Church Hall, Higher Lane, Rainford, WA11 8AL.

Yvonne Taylor, a personal friend, will be telling the powerful story of her mother’s deportation from Soviet occupied Poland to hard labour in Siberia and, eventually, to a Polish life in Lancashire.

Tickets cost £5, including Polish Apple Cake, tea or coffee.  Numbers are limited so please purchase in advance: tel Sue 01744 28535, Liz 07810515332 or Yvonne 01744 883824. Details are also on the flyer.

Whilst we know that many of our supporters live at a distance and will not be able to join us, please forward this email and the flyer to anyone you think may like to attend.  If you would like to support the event and are unable to make it on the night, any donations would be greatly appreciated, including raffle prizes.

If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us either by


2. ACE Charity Fun Quiz: Saturday, 13th October, 2018:

By popular request, we will be holding our second Fun Quiz for the charity on Saturday, 13th October at Bishop Road Police Club, St. Helens, WA10 6SX. Last year’s event was a sell out and much enjoyed by all. Details to follow nearer the time but, meanwhile, please make sure the date is in your diary and keep the evening free.

Thank you for helping us to raise money for Arise School.
