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.

ANNUAL CHAIRMANS REPORT
2019/2020


What a very good start we had at the beginning of the school academic year 2019. We hosted a brilliant Pumpkin Day fete in October. It had an excellent turn out by parents, pupils & the public.
Then we hosted our 3rd annual Firework Extravaganza, which was the best one yet, again supported by parents, pupils and the public.
We had a wonderful time over Christmas with both KS1 and KS2 performing their Nativity performances at school and at St. Matthews church. Then we started the New Year 2020.
But by March all our lives were turned upside down by the Corona virus Covid 19. We were told to wash our hands, stay 2 metres away from each other. Then we were to stay at home by the Government, so school was closed. We weren’t allowed to mix with Family or Friends unless they were living in our household! The NHS, Teachers & other key workers were rushed off their feet working so many hours and totally exhausted.
So, this pandemic had an enormous impact on F.O.B.S annual fund-raising funds due to us having to cancel our annual May Day fete which normally is our highest fund-raising event of the year. So, this has made a huge dent in our funds for the year.
As the pandemic is still ongoing this will also affect Pumpkin Day & the Firework extravaganza this year, so having another huge dent to our funds.
Although some of the children returned to school all be it in a very different way. This is going to be a very challenging time for F.O.B.S to raise funds for our fantastic little school.
And now with all this said and done, it is with a very heavy heart that I have to say goodbye to you all, and stand down as Chair of F.O.B.S. But I do believe that my successor will do an equally good job of raising funds for this amazing little school.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Karen for being the most amazing Vice Chair…. Karen you’re the best! and hopefully you will take over the baton of F.O.B.S Chair from me.
My biggest thank you has to go to my long-suffering Husband Adam, I really couldn’t have done half the events without all your help.
So we would like to say a huge thank you Bredhurst for everything you have done for Lili-Ann & us over the last 7 years. We are always here if you need our help, and we’ll see you at May Day 2021.

With all best wishes for 2020/2021

Jayne Sullivan
Chair of Friends of Bredhurst School
