Money raised at the hugely successful Bolton School Ball has been donated to the School’s Bursary Fund. The Boys’ and Girls Division Parents’ Associations, who organised the sparkling event in June, were delighted to hand over a cheque for £10,000.

The Ball was held at the A J Bell Stadium in Salford and provided 360 guests with a night of entertainment along a 1920s Gatsby theme. Fundraising was conducted through a fun ‘Heads and Tails’ competition, raffle and pre-event online silent auction.

Sue Hincks, Headmistress of the Girls’ Division reflected: “The 2018 Bolton School Ball was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended. We are hugely grateful to all those who have supported the event, and in particular the local suppliers and School connections who have acted as sponsors and prize donors, without whose generosity the fundraising success would not have been possible.”

Nissa Smyth, Chair of the Girls’ Division PA, and Helen Critchlow, the Boys’ Division Parent Governor, presented the money on behalf of both PAs to the School’s Chair of Governors, Michael Griffiths, at the end of the 2017-18 school year.
