Proud of Bootham?
Monday, January 27
We are very proud of our Bootham community and it's always a pleasure to welcome Old Scholars, former members of staff, and past and present parents to the school. We want to thank you for the support you've given us over the past year; whether you've generously given us donations or supported us by attending events.
On Wednesday 29 April 2020 we will be holding Bootham's first Giving Day, which will have as its theme, Bootham Proud (#BoothamProud). Giving Days are events that a small but increasing number of schools and universities in the UK are organising to celebrate their alma maters as part of their annual fundraising efforts.
We believe that Bootham's longstanding Quaker ethos, embodied most visibly in the quality of our education programme and strength of our community - along with so much more - is something that the entire Bootham community can be extremely proud of and delighted to celebrate.
We are looking for Giving Day Ambassadors - Old Scholars, staff members and parents, past and present - to help us get the word out and help make this a success, and we'd love to have you support us in doing this.
- Mainly your help to disseminate messages from the Development team on 29 April to your Bootham networks via social media and email.
- We'll send you all you need and just ask that you share it with your contacts. If you're able to reach out to friends who might like to also be ambassadors on the day, we'd be thrilled if you could, and we can help with the comms around this.
- We will also plan social media activities for 29 April that you could be involved in beforehand and on the day, selfies, short videos, etc. - which you share with us to use in our messages, and which you ideally would share on your main social media channels, where appropriate.
Our combined creativity and sense of fun will make Bootham's first Giving Day a guaranteed success, so we look forward to your help in showing why we are all #BoothamProud
