Welton St Mary’s has a fundraising committee called School Friends. We are a friendly group of mums, dads and grandparents who meet once a month to discuss and organise events for the children and their parents, including:
– Family Easter Bingo
– Three discos a year
– Christmas Shop
– Summer Fayre
We also provide refreshments at Sports Day & Carols on the Playground. During the year we organise the children’s personalised tea towels & Christmas cards.
In recent years we have funded:
– outdoor gym equipment
– Leavers’ Books
– subsidised a whole school trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park
– bushcraft equipment
– two outdoor libraries
– £2000 worth of books for all year groups
We are currently fundraising for a trim trail – a wooden outdoor play area – for the children to play on during lunch and play times.
The School Friends team would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped at any of the events during 2017/18 we’ve held this year. We couldn’t run them without you!
We also want to thank all the parents, grandparents and carers who have come along and supported our events the year. It’s been a brilliant year of fundraising!
Sports Day refreshments raised £700
We provided each child with an ice pole at the end of their events
Despicable Me 3 Film Night raised £214
The Summer Fayre raised £1242
We appreciate any help from parents, even if you can help at just one event during the year. If you’d like to get involved or have any ideas for our calendar please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
