BHSA news – thank you and recipe request

Many thanks to everyone who donated their delicious home baking and/or volunteered at our stall at the Dean Gardens open day yesterday. Your cakes and treats drew the crowds, and we raised nearly £500, which will go towards supporting activities and equipment at the school which can’t be funded through their budget. This was our first fundraiser since March 2020 and a great start to the school year!

We need your recipes!

Our next project is to produce a fundraising cook book, but we need your recipes to share!

We’re looking for a range of wonderful dishes:

* signature bakes like yesterday’s bestsellers
* a dish that reminds you of home
* easy family dinners
* the dish you think every young person should be able to make

We are open to all ideas from staff, pupils and parents and carers!

***Please don’t copy directly from someone else’s website or recipe book – that could get us into trouble with copyright.*** Your own twist on a classic recipe is fine, though.

You can use this form to share your recipe with us or email: bhsassociation@gmail.com. Photos would be great, too! https://forms.office.com/r/rxFqnBC25s

We look forward to trying out some of your recipes and hope to have a wonderful book ready in time for Christmas. If you have any questions or if you can help us with publishing suggestions, please email bhsassociation@gmail.com .

Thank you!
Lesley and the BHSA committee

All parents/carers are very welcome to join us for the first Broughton High School Association meeting of the new school year. The BHSA is the fundraising arm of the Parent Council. We are a registered charity.

Our meetings are friendly and informal. We discuss fundraising and social activities, and hopefully this year we will be able to take advantage of more in-person events.

We will meet at The Place, which is part of the rugby development on Raeburn Place, Stockbridge. The entrance is next to the Co-op. Come up the stairs and turn left to find us in the bar.
