About the Friends
The Friends of All Saints is a charity fund raising committee run by parents of children in the school.
The Association actively supports the school through its fundraising efforts, raising money for all those little extras that help to enhance the children's lives in school.
Our Friends Association activities are enjoyable and we hope that they are a good way for people to meet each other. Through events such as Christmas/Summer Fairs, Discos, Quiz nights, family fun nights and so on we have raised tens of thousands of pounds in the last few years.
What does the money pay for?
These funds have enabled the school to provide extra, valuable resources for the children to use that they would not have been able to otherwise afford. We have also provided funds for a refurbishment of the school playground, ipads for classrooms, a new nature trail for the playground, helped to update the hall with new curtains, a new sound system, whiteboards and many, many other items.
How can you help?
Share your ideas and energy!
The success of the Friends depends entirely on the support of all parents and staff. We greatly appreciate any assistance. This can be anything from being a committee member, to taking a lead role in organising fund-raising events … or even just giving a little of your time to helping out.
Join in the fun!
Very importantly, just coming along to the functions with friends and family will ensure the events are worthwhile. Please support us. Each event raises much money to help provide extra equipment for our children to enjoy and learn by.
Help in school
Perhaps you have a few hours 'spare' time that you don't know how to fill! We always have jobs for willing hands. Each class teacher would welcome a little help. It could be listening to readers or assisting with an art activity, helping on an outing, no previous experience necessary just come along and have a go.
Ask your class teacher how you can help.
