Friends of Brightwalton

As part of Brightwalton Primary School, all parents, carers, guardians and staff are automatically members of The Friends of Brightwalton and the Committee would love you to get involved and hear your thoughts and ideas. It is a great way to be more involved in school life, offering you the opportunity to get to know  other families and contribute a little (or a lot!) of your time to such a worthy cause. If you would like to join us, even just for one event, please contact us via the school office.

What The Friends Do:

We are passionate about our school and helping our children be the best they can be. Over the years we have raised money to help the school in numerous ways thanks to the huge effort from children, parents and staff. We always welcome any new ideas and as little or as much support as anyone could offer, so please don’t be shy! Our usual events and initiatives to raise money are:

· Summer Fete    · Christmas Fayre    · Easter Egg Hunt     · Movie Nights    · Disco Nights      · Cake / Refreshments / Raffle Sales     · Local Business Sponsorships

· EasyFundraising (see more below) - our cause: Brightwalton Friends https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/brightwaltonfriends/

All funds raised enrich the children’s education.

Following on from the huge success of the Village Walk back in October 2018, which raised an amazing £2166.21 to help towards the School’s Wellbeing Garden, we are now looking towards helping the school fund the refurbishment of the Technology Room, used for cooking, design technology and teaching groups.
