The Friends work hard to plan, organise and facilitiate events and functions to raise money to support the children’s learning.
The 28th September 2018 was the school’s Annual Sponsored Walk along Filey beach and this enjoyable family event raised £909.35 In December 2018 we held a Christmas Fair that was very well attended and which raised £599.68 and in July 2018 our school Summer fair raised an amazing £1035.10. All of the monies raised enable school to bring exciting additional experiences to all the children during the academic year. These include visitors to school and out of school educational visits e.g. Willow Weaving, Chinese Dancing and the Stephen Joseph Theatre for Christmas Performances with more visits planned for the Spring and Summer 2019.
The group work hard and appreciate that not all parents are able to attend the meetings and would therefore welcome any fundraising suggestions that any other parents have. If you would like to share your ideas please write a brief note and address it to ‘Friends of Filey Infants Fundraising Committee’, and send it to the school office.
We look forward to the forthcoming year and will let you know about our next fundraising event in the newsletters and the Friends of Filey Blog section.
