Lakeside Primary and Cardiff City FC Foundation have organised a sponsored Penalty Shoot Out to take place at school on Thursday 26 April. Every pupil will have the opportunity to take part in this fun event whilst raising funds to replace outdoor play and PE equipment. The Sainsbury’s Active Kids voucher scheme has previously provided us with this equipment but it is unfortunately no longer running.
The proceeds of all sponsorship will be split 50/50 with Cardiff City FC Community Foundation which is a registered charity and the official charity of Cardiff City Football Club. They require funding and sponsorship to support children, young people, vulnerable adults and families that are living in South Wales to achieve their full potential. By using the unique appeal of the Cardiff City FC brand they aim to improve understanding of how to lead healthier, more active lives, with improved access to education and employment, thus reducing the likelihood of offending and re-offending. You can find additional information at www.cardiffcityfcfoundation.org.uk
Sponsorship forms will be sent home with your child shortly and we would much appreciate if you could ask friends and family if they would be prepared to kindly sponsor your child – every little helps. Please could completed forms [along with the sponsored amount] be returned to the school office by Friday 20th April at the latest. The pupil who raises the most sponsorship will receive two tickets for a Cardiff City home fixture game during the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship Season but every form completed and returned with payment will be entered into a prize draw.
Thank you for your continued generous support.
