£6544 raised by Friends of Budehaven

As we approach the end of 2017 we also come to the first full year of the Friends of Budehaven – and what a great year it has been!

In just a short time the Friends of Budehaven have raised £6,544 including just over £700 in the last few days of this term.

In raising this money, we have been able to fund various music equipment, books for the English department, and nets for the PE department. And we are so pleased to be able to contribute to the education of young people throughout the school.

This fundraising has only been possible because of the commitment of a number of people.

First, I would like to say thank you to the Head, senior leadership team, and staff who have welcomed us so warmly to work alongside them.

I would also like to thank those who have contributed through their sponsorship of Friends. These include Zoeftigs, Morrisons, the Co-op, Life’s a Beach, and Lisa Wood.

Finally, I would like to thank those parents who have been involved with the Friends over the last year. You have been incredible and it has been a privilege to have been a part of the team.

To end, I would like to wish you all a very happy time over this Christmas period and look forward to our second year supporting our School.
