Friends of Chase Lane
Welcome to our fundraising page!
Who are we?
Friends of Chase Lane Primary School is traditionally a thriving group of fundraisers, including the Head Teacher, staff and parents, who meet about once or twice per half-term to discuss innovative methods by which to boost the school's funds; not only to purchase much needed extra equipment for the children, but also to enrich the children's education by organising and subsidising treats and special experiences.
In the past few years, Friends have been proud to provide extensive funds towards the purchase of major items such as sophisticated computer equipment, outside shade, wet play games and playground furniture throughout the school, as well as providing everyday essentials such as books, glue pots and scissors - and subsidising lots of extra treats such as workshops, musical events and days out for the children too.
As well as providing equipment, we have also organised annual non-fundraising events such as the Reception Teddy Bears' Picnic and the Year 6 Leavers' Discos. We have also provided Christmas presents and other gifts for the children each year.
And of course there have been plenty of fun events organised to raise these funds such as Fairs, Bingo Nights and Discos etc. etc. etc. which have been great fun and excellent value for our children, their families and the local community.
Friends of Chase Lane Primary School will always welcome new members from within the school community and is grateful for the ongoing support of children, family and friends of the school with whom many thousands of pounds are raised every year. Meetings are always fun, friendly and informal. Please contact the school or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to join us or help in any way.
