We are a group of parents who organise fundraising activities for the school. To help raise funds over the last year we have held a Quiz Night, a Christmas Fun Day, an Art Exhibition, as well as selling Christmas cards and tea towels, cake sales and an Easter and Christmas raffle.
We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and welcome new Committee members or people who would like to help out. If you are able to spare any time to help us please leave your name and a contact number with the school office and a member of the Committee will contact you. We meet approximately once every half term and in addition each year we hold an AGM in January to elect the Committee members. All parents and carers are invited to come along.
We hope that you will continue to support our fundraising as every penny raised is used for the benefit of the children.
How your support helps ~ How you can help
Offering to help before events during the year is so valuable - it really is a case of 'many hands make light work'. It doesn't matter if you can't help on a regular basis, or even if you can't come into school. There are always little jobs that can be done from home if you have half an hour to spare e.g. wrapping gifts, preparing raffle tickets etc. We really couldn't achieve what we do without the unseen 'army of help' that exists in school.
You can of course volunteer to be a Committee member. Or you can simply support the AGM and give us your ideas for fundraising events - this is also the time to ask questions or voice your opinion.
You can help by letting us know if you have any contacts or skills we could use - everything is potentially valuable to us.
