As it comes to the end of an amazing first year, the Friends of Budehaven School (a PTA group supporting the school through fundraising and social events) has raised a massive £4,473. This includes a generous donation from the Co-Op Local Causes Fund of £2,303.72 following a successful funding application.
The Friends of Budehaven (FOBS) is open to all parents. The group regularly provides very welcome refreshments at parents’ evenings and school events, which also adds to funds.
They can be found on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/budehavenfriends/ With Christmas approaching, people are also being encouraged to donate through easy fundraising https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/friendsofbudehavenschool/ and join for free.
The FOBS have some events lined up to end the year including Budehaven Choir singing carols to get everyone into the festive spirit at Wyevale Garden Centre, between 5.30 – 6.30pm at their late night shopping evening on 30th November.
On 15th December, FOBS will be supporting the school to help raise funds for CLIC Sargent at the big Christmas Triangle Late Night Shopping event (7-9pm).
19th December brings a Christmas Music Extravaganza between 6-9pm in school which is well attended by parents and children. FOBS will be serving mulled cider, tea/coffee/soft drinks and mince pies.
One of the most recent purchases for the school has been some much needed 7 aside and 11 aside football goal nets. It is items like this which enrich the lives of children and young people at the school and within the community which FOBs is working towards at a time of increasingly tight school budgets.
