A father who has had enough of the requests from his daughter’s school for Christmas donations that has come up with his own newsletter. Taking to social media site Facebook, Paul Callan says his little girl needs her own personal assistant (PA) to deal with the demands for art projects and the upcoming fair. Callan in his post mentioned various donations asked by schools on several occasions. He also mentioned the requests made by the school for projects.
He’s received the backing of other parents who said it was ‘priceless’ after reading about: Donations for the critically endangered Guatemalan colour blind tree gecko, Hog roast for the hard of hearing, A scale model of an 11th-century Roman fortress, and Baking 100 gluten-free, nut-free, diabetic-friendly mince pies.

Speaking to global media he said, ‘We are very lucky that Sophia goes to a fantastic school which provides the children with a well-rounded education and access to a wide range of activities and opportunities. The highlight of my week is reading the weekly newsletter, but at this time of the year, it takes me most of the weekend to get through.'
‘We stockpile so many pound coins that our front room resembles a Blackpool arcade at cashing uptime, and most mornings my wife sends a desperate to text to the class mum’s WhatsApp group to check what colour socks Sophia should be wearing that day. ‘I enjoy reading the posts on Manchester Family Facebook, so I thought I’d share my post to see whether other parents could relate,’ he added.
