Welcome to the Friends of Cranbourne School!
We are a strong and active team of parents that help raise funds for the school by organising events throughout the year.
Our main events are the Summer and Christmas Fayres which are always very successful. We added a pirate theme to our summer fayre last year and are always coming up with new ideas for games and stalls. Throughout the school year we also ran a disco for the children and a quiz night for the adults.
Our Bag2School collection runs twice a year in October and March and last year we had a record number of bags returned. We continue, almost termly, with our Pre-Loved uniform sales.
The money raised from these events all goes to the school. Last year, funds were used to provide first aid training to all children in year 2 upwards. This training was provided by Keepabeat and received lots of positive feedback from the children, parents and staff. It is hoped this training will continue with each new year 2 group as the children move up the school.
Money has also been used to purchase a new PE shed for the school and lots of classroom resources including whiteboards for all the classes.
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 out at events and of course attending the events.
Everyone is invited to attend our AGM, held in 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 out at any of the events. Look out for our requests and if you can spare 30 minutes to help set up or run a stall, it would all really help and ensures the events can definitely go ahead.
We are still encouraging parents to get involved with Easyfunding when doing their on-line shopping and to also sign up to the Broxbourne Lottery. We now receive regular amounts each month from these organisations. See below for further details. We also continually ask for any parents who work for companies that offer £4£ as this is a great way to boost our funds.
The fully active members of our team at present (September 2019) are:
Suzanne Collicott (Chairperson) - Son in 5ED
