We are a new charity fundraising committee run by parents of the children in the school, some members of staff and community volunteers. It helps to provide all of those little extras that enhance the children’s time at school.
The social and fund raising events are organised by the energetic committee and continues to provide money for much needed facilities, resources and equipment for the children.
What We Do
Friends events take place throughout the year and have included:
- Community grant applications
- Coffee mornings
- Outdoor tidy-up sessions
- 140 year anniversary celebration
Through such events, to date, we have raised funds of almost £700, which has made a huge difference to the outdoor play area which has been cleaned, tidied, painted, re-planted and generally rejuvenated ready for the new start of term in September 2016.
How Can You Help?
The success of the friends depends entirely on the support of parents, staff and the community. We greatly appreciate any assistance and support. This may be from volunteering a little of you time to help out, coming along and attending events, donating items and prizes or by joining the committee. Donations play a very important role in our fundraising efforts.
Share your fundraising ideas with us, we are always open to new ideas and success stories.
Maybe you work for a company who discards goods when they can’t be sold or would negotiate a great price for items which we may sell or put to good use?
