Book competition update

June 9, 2017

We are in the running to win £1000 for new library books, the competition is very close and every vote counts! To be in with a chance we need to be one of the top 10 most voted-for projects; there are five prizes of £1000 to be won. We’re in the top 10 for now but by no means safe at the top of the list.

Please help us to find some more votes. It will make a huge difference if each parent can get one or two more people to vote for us – it could be a family member or a friend.

Please ask someone to vote for us. They need to be 18 or older and live in the UK – they just need an email address and a couple of minutes, it is totally free to do. Tell them to give all 10 votes to Diptford.

Go to this page to register, vote or to find out more about the new reading scheme:

The last day for voting is Mon 26 June. Thank you once again!

  • Individuals to help direct at the car park – anytime you can make between 7.30am and 5.30pm

This is a big fundraiser for FODS as we usually get a couple of donations for helping out at this event.
