Friends of Crescent are a group of parents, staff and members of the local community who volunteer their time to meet together informally to talk about forthcoming fundraising events and ideas for the future.
Information on up and coming events will be posted on this page and publicised in the school newsletter as they are arranged.
We welcome new parents/carers to join us and help school organise fundraising events such as Summer & Christmas Fairs, Clothing collections, Disco's, Easter raffles etc..
We also work closely with School Ambassadors who keep us up-to-date with the views of all the children in school and how we can help support them with their ideas.
Our next meeting date is:-
Will be confirmed shortly
Do come along to see for yourself how you can help us with our fundraising events. It's also a chance to meet new faces, make new friends, have a cuppa and biscuit!
All the help we receive in school from volunteers for our fundraising events has a direct impact on the success of them, as you will see from photographs of our fabulous events displayed on our Friends of Crescent Notice Boards, in the school newsletter and in school's reception area!
School budgets are very tight and there just isn't enough money to spend on things like books and ICT equipment. In the past the Friends of Crescent Primary group have fundraised enough money to purchase:
This year we are focussing on fundraising for more new ICT equipment for the children as well as new reading books and setting up of a new sensory room.
Your help and support is vital.
We greatly appreciate all of your helping hands and hard work and are looking forward to our next meeting where the group will be sharing ideas and planning for future fundraising events.
A HUGE thank you once again to everyone for your continued help and support.
Wednesday 15th May at the Crescent Centre
