The bus fees we pay go towards the cost of operating the bus but they don’t cover all operating expenses. Subscriptions fall short $10,000 each year on operating costs alone and we collectively need to offset the difference through fundraising, otherwise it will be a case of increasing bus family fees in 2017 to make up some of the shortfall. The bus society may also need to revisit the discounted school charter rate which would impact school trip prices.
Here’s how you can help:
- Invite friends, family, neighbours, colleagues, everyone, to the comedy hypnotist fundraiser. They can buy their tickets online at eventfinda.co.nz. Search ‘Dave Upfold’.
- Please could you help out by providing a plate of baking. We’re providing a light supper in the ticket price and home baking will help us to keep our costs down. Please drop off your baking to Gail in the Resource Room (old Library) on Thursday or Friday next week.
