What's the challenge?

 At the end of each term the students give a performance. The young people love to have an audience (and it is very important for their self-esteem that what they’ve been practising is seen).  Unfortunately not many parents attend these events. Your challenge is to gather a group of five volunteers to watch the show(s) at the end of the summer term (mid-July).  An extra challenge is to raise enough money to pay for a £5 book token for each of the 40 children who will be taking part.

100% matching applies.
