FRIENDS OF BARDSEY PRIMARY SCHOOL
Enriching the environment for children at Bardsey Primary School
Friends of Bardsey Primary School (FOBPS) is a charity set up ‘to enrich the environment for the children of Bardsey Primary School’. In meeting this vision we aim to:
Develop relationships between the parents, staff and wider community.
Engage in activities that support the school and advance the education of the pupils.
Provide and assist in the provision of facilities for education at the school.
The way we work
We work with the school to identify suitable fundraising targets. Ideally we like to support some smaller projects within the school that benefit a particular group or class and undertake to fund a larger project which benefits the whole school.
All parents and staff can be involved and a committee is formed to run FOBPS. This main committee decides how to take forward the interests of FOBPS and sub-groups are formed to organise particular aspects.
We have raised over £50,000 for the school over the last three financial years through fundraising, grant applications and awards.
Our committee currently consists of:
Hannah Tebbet (Chair); Beth Hailey (Vice Chair); Jo Kay (Secretary); Emma Foulds (Treasurer); Ellen Parker and Chloe Roylance.
Our fundraising aims
Currently, we are raising funds to provide for a range of different projects throughout the school.
Can you help us help the children?
We are very keen to have anyone who would like to get involved and either take a place on our committee, be a class rep, help organise events or get involved in other tasks. Whatever your skills or interests, then we have something you could help with, please contact us!
Could you be a FoBPS helper?
If you feel you'd like to help but only can offer to do so on an "ad hoc" basis perhaps you could one of FOBPS many hands?
We have set up a FOBPS helpers WhatsApp group. The purpose of the group is to distribute tasks prior to, during and after fundraising events.
This might be collecting money on entry to an event or selling sweets or drinks at an event or just helping to tidying up after event.
Some tasks will be a couple of hours of your time, others will be far less.
So if your happy to be added to the WhatsApp group so you can see the tasks the committee need help with please email your mobile number to firstname.lastname@example.org
