Fund Raising

Christmas Fair

We are really pleased to announce that the Christmas Fair and the selling of all the Christmas gift items raised a whopping £780 for school!  Thank you so much to everybody who helped out, and all of you who came along and supported the day. Below are a few pictures from the day, taken by Mr Pollard.

Last year FOBS donated a massive £10,500 to the school:

£ 9,730   towards ‘The Big Build’
£480 for panto bus
£170 for hot chocolates & milkshakes
£120 for YR 6 leavers gifts

Thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered, made cakes, ran stalls, etc.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

This year our fundraising  target is £10,000.

Money raised will go towards replacement of the Trim Trail, repair of the outdoor class room roof, and equipment/storage for Reception’s Outdoor play area.

We are in the process of applying for a £5000 community grant from Aviva Insurance, for the Trim Trail Replacement.  To be in with a chance to win we need your votes between 21st October -  18th November.
