Friends of Brookside
WHO ARE FRIENDS OF BROOKSIDE?
Whether you have been with the school for some time or have little ones in Brookside Nursery, Crispin Nursery or in Early Years, it's time to get involved! Friends of Brookside is a charity, established purely to enhance the educational experience of our children. We run fun events such as Discos, Bedtime Stories, Cake Sales, Easter events, Summer/Christmas Fairs and many more.
If you have an idea for an event, please do get in touch. We are always looking for fresh ideas.
These events raise funds to subsidise various activities organised by the school. Regular contributions have been made to school trips, equipment and school crossing staff. Larger 'one-off' projects have included landscaping at the rear of the school, a school Minibus and the play equipment which opened in summer 2015.
Chair - Kelly Fowler
Treasurer - Ben Grenter
Headteacher - Brian Walton
Deputy Headteacher - Sarah Ashford
The FoB Committee is supported by a team of parent volunteers from across all year groups of the school. The following parents regularly attend committee meetings and help at events:
WE NEED YOUR HELP.......
In recent years, the number of parent volunteers who help run FoB events has dwindled considerably.
*** We cannot run our events without your help ***
We appreciate that everyone has busy lives - we are not asking for a huge ongoing commitment of your time. Just one hour every now and then to help at the odd event would make all the difference. The support from family and friends is vital in determining the future of FoB - all funds raised are put towards resources that support our children. Without more helpers, there is a very real risk that FOB cannot continue - ultimately this means that all these events cannot happen and our children will miss out on the funds that FoB provides.
FUNDRAISING PROJECT 2018-2019
Any ideas and suggestions for future fundraising projects are gratefully received - we are open to any ideas which will benefit the whole school, targets which are fun and exciting to aim for. If you'd like to propose a fundraising idea then please fill in the contact form below, see a member of the committee or drop us a note via the school office.
If you would like to help us please give the office your email address and phone number and we will keep you up to date of events where you can help out.
