Greetings from the New ‘Friends’ Committee…
Joint Chair - Helen Bridges and Rachel Slater
Secretary - Helen MacMillan
Treasurer - Kirsty Isats
Between us we have children in Reception, Years 1,2,3 & 5.
Contact us via Friends Facebook page or our email: firstname.lastname@example.org
As parents we are all Friends of Swansfield Park Primary School and we as the committee rely on help from the other friends (all of you) in supporting our fundraising events, whether that is by bringing your children to the events we organise, buying raffle tickets, donating prizes or helping us at the events.
All of the money raised goes directly back into school, we pay for the children to have a Christmas lunch in school, we are often able to cover the cost of bus hire for school trips and we are in the process of buying football strips for the school teams.
We are always very keen to hear from anyone who may be able to spare some time to help, this is often helping with tasks like selling raffle tickets, serving in the tuck-shop or running a stall. However small, contributions of help are aways appreciated.
We are keen to set up a group, whether that is via email or a ‘What’s App’ group where we can communicate with people who have expressed an interest in helping at future events, this way we can coordinate offers of help and know in advance if we have enough volunteers. It may be that you can help at one event and not the next or the one after that, there is no pressure to help at each and every event.
If you would like to add your email address or mobile number to our list of potential helpers then please contact us via the email address above.
Upcoming fundraising events include
Freaky Friday Disco 20th October
Christmas Disco 8th December
We will also require help with raffle ticket sales at the Christmas Concerts 12/13/14th December
The next friends meeting is Thursday 16th November at 6pm in school, please come along to meet us and hear what we have planned for the future, offer your help at an event or if you have any fundraising ideas for us to try.
Another way to support the Friends of Swansfield Park Primary is to use www.easyfundraising.org.uk when you shop online. It’s very simple to use and offers cash back to the Friends from merchants like Amazon who do not offer cash back on other cash back sites.
