Friends of Bredhurst

This is a group run by parents of children in the school who fundraise to provide money which directly enhances the pupils educational provision.  The FOBS support the school in purchasing new equipment and helping to maintain the swimming pool amongst many other things.

The main yearly fund raising events are Pumpkin Morning in October and May Day in May. These events are very well supported by all parents, staff, governors and the local community.

 

Any volunteers to join this team will be gratefully received.

CHAIRMAN’S REPORT

2017-2018

Well I’m sure that you will agree we’ve had another great year of fund-raising for our little school. The children and school have benefited from lots of different things this academic year with the help of FoBS fund-raising events. These include the £6,000 ICT project, pantomime trip for the whole school, new FoBS shed and leaver’s bibles to name just a few.

We were very excited to finally introduce to our events the firework display last year which proved to be a great success and hope it will stay as part of our fund raising events for many years to come.

So here’s to a new year of fund-raising. Thank you to everyone who helps with FoBS events throughout the year, we really couldn’t do it without your continued support. We’re always very grateful for any new volunteers to join us at meetings and events. Whether you would like to just make a donation or would like to man a stall. As the saying goes “many hands make light work” so come along Mums and Dads, Nans and Grandads etc and join in the madness.

Finally, I would like to say a big thank you firstly to my husband, Adam, for all his continued help & support with everything I rope you into! But I would also like to thank Wendy Miller and Karen Shepherd as they both stand down as Vice Chair and Treasurer. Thank you for all your help and support you’ve given me over the past year, I couldn’t have done it without you.

Thank you!
