Welcome to the Friends of Cranbourne School!
We are a strong and active team of parents that raise funds for the school by organising events throughout the year.
Our main events are the Summer and Christmas Fayres and last year we also ran a school disco and a pamper evening. We organised collections for Bags2School and children designed their own Christmas cards. Other events that have been organised in the past are quiz nights, fun runs, cinema nights and pre-loved uniform sales.
The money raised from these events all goes to the school. The money has been used for new equipment, updating the computer suite, new outside play equipment, ‘Cran Hages’ allotment and lots more.
We would not manage any of this if it wasn’t for the generous support of all the parents by donating items for our fayres, helping at events and of course attending the events.
Everyone is invited to attend our AGM, which is held each September and we meet monthly to discuss the next few events and come up with new ideas for fundraising. If you are interested in attending our meetings, please get in touch with one of the committee members below. You can also let us know if you wish to help at any of the events. Look out for our requests, via your children's book bags, the FOCS board in the front office and our Facebook page (FOCS Hoddesdon) and if you can spare any time, even just 30 minutes to help set up or run a stall, it would all really help and ensures the events can definitely go ahead.
