Friends of Lockwood Primary School
The Lockwood Primary Friends' Association is a charity fundraising committee run by parents of children in the school and some of the staff. It helps provide all those little extras that enhance the children's lives in school.
All parents automatically become members of the Friends’ Association when their child joins the school. The social and fund raising events organised by the energetic and successful Friends’ Committee continue to provide money for much needed facilities and resources for the children. Most activities are designed to be ‘family events’ but there are some that are aimed specifically at a solely parent audience.
The school is indebted to the work of the Friends’ Association and all the parents who support our school. We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for such fantastic support!
What do we do?
Friends events take place throughout the year and have included:
- Family Fun Evenings
- Fashion Shows
- Quiz Nights
- Summer and Christmas Fayres
- Coffee Mornings
Through such events, we have raised tens of thousands of pounds in the last few years. These funds have enabled the school to provide extra, valuable resources for the children to use.
How can you help?
The success of the Friends depends entirely on the support of all parents, staff and the community. We greatly appreciate any assistance. This can be anything from a little time spent helping out in the background, to coming along to the functions with friends and family or by joining the "Friends" committee.
Share your fund raising ideas with us, we are always open to new ideas and welcome any suggestions from an idea for a stall at the Fayres to a suggestion for a whole event.
Donations play a very big role in our fundraising efforts. We are not just talking about the very important pound for own-clothes day, but prize donations for raffles and competitions, as well as time for wrapping the lucky dip items or secret presents.
Maybe you work for a company who discards goods when they can’t be sold or would negotiate a great price for items we can sell or put in our lucky dips?
