The Friends of Preston Primary (FOPPS) are long established. The FOPPS focus on raising money for the school to cover costs of all projects that usual school grants would not cover. The FOPPS meet once a term and come together to plan fundraising events. In the past, these have included an annual Family Fun Night, Christmas hamper raffles, Bingo and Quiz nights, and many other sponsored events. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has meant that many traditional fundraising events cannot currently take place, so we are having to be creative in our thinking!
The FOPPS were pleased to have been able to contribute towards the fantastic Pirate Ship in the school playground. Over the years, the FOPPS have funded:
- the purchase of i-Pads;
- the building and establishment of the raised vegetable garden and the wildlife areas;
- educational visits for all children;
- Christmas presents from the teachers to the children;
- a greenhouse and sheds;
- library refurbishment.
If you are interested in joining our friendly committee, please speak to Mr Walker or Miss Rich, or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out more about what we do. If you have any suggestions for fundraising events then please do not hesitate to let us know your ideas!
