You must be joking!

Following great fundraising events for Moors, Mercers and Homlethorpe’s house charities this year, Spynes are excited to invite all children and families of Lime Tree Primary school to take part in a fundraising event for our chosen charity, Home-Start.

On Wednesday 12th July, Spynes will be holding a ‘JOKATHON!’

What you need to do:

  • Choose your favourite joke!
  • Donate £1 to enter your joke in to our Jokathon!
  • Bring it in to school on Wednesday 12th July (clearly marked with your name and class)

Children’s jokes will be shared with their class during the day. Teachers will choose the most popular jokes to be shared in an afternoon assembly. A representative from Home-Start will also be joining us for the assembly to tell us more about the charity and how they help others.

Home-Start volunteers help families with young children deal with the challenges they face. They support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children. Home-Starts across the UK also support families in groups, hold day trips and Christmas parties and help access local services, as well as lots of other support.

On behalf of everyone in Spynes House, we thank you for your support and look forward to hearing lots of giggles and laughter!
