FOBS

 

Friends of Bletchingley Village Primary School (FOBS)

The Friends of Bletchingley Village Primary aim to help support the children’s learning and enjoyment by:

  • developing extended relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school;
  • engaging in fund raising and other activities, which support the school; and
  • providing fun extras for the children

Parents are encouraged to become involved with any of our events. If you think you can support FOBS in any way and would like to find out more, please speak to the chair or any other committee member for further information. Contact details are available from the school office. You can also email froscs@stcatherines.surrey.sch.uk to get in touch.

We currently have a very small committee who organise various fundraising events during the year and we need parents to help co-ordinate, set up, run and clear away. It’s a great way to be involved with your child’s school and it’s also a great way to meet other parents. However we recognise that many of you are working parents, but even if you can spare an hour to help at one of our events or on an ad-hoc basis, we would love to hear from you. It goes without saying that without your support we cannot run the events that go towards funding key resources for the school.

The committee hold an AGM each year which is publicised and everyone is welcome to attend. We are always looking for new ideas so please come along, or volunteer to get involved at one of our events.

For details of who’s on the committee, minutes from our meetings and job descriptions please follow the links on the right.

Easy Fundraising

Easyfundraising is a simple and continuous way for you to raise funds for our school without adding to your workload or costing you a single penny extra!! Simply do your online shopping through easyfundraising.org.uk.

Here’s how it works:

Sign up to easyfundraising at easyfundraising.org.uk/pta-uk by selecting “Support your PTA” and searching for 'FOBS'.

Once you have registered, search for a retailer you would like to shop with…. There are over 2,700 to choose from including Amazon, John Lewis and Argos.

Then click through to the retailer and shop as normal. Everything costs exactly the same.

When you make a purchase the retailer will make a donation to your cause to say thanks for shopping with them.

We've raised over £300 so far! That’s not bad going for just doing a little internet shopping!  We only have a few people signed up, just think how much more money we could earn if all parents signed up!
