FRIENDS OF WILLINGDON
The Friends of Willingdon are a group of parents, carers and supporters who seek to provide a link between the school, home and community through the organisation of a wide range of events which are not only a great deal of fun and a fantastic way to make new friends. It is also an opportunity to fundraise for school projects to enhance and enrich all our children’s school lives.
This year we are very proud to present a new minibus to the school – a vision that seemed all but impossible 3 years ago! In recent years we have also given the school a new laser cutter for the DT department and an online IXL English package.
Over the past year we have supported the many activities of the school, including the Sponsored Walk, Christmas Concert, School Play, Fusion Music Festival in the summer. Last year we organised our first ever Firework event, in conjunction with a local primary school, and raised over £2500 for the school. We hosted the annual Christmas Fair as well as organising Bingo and Quiz nights throughout the year. We also attend every parent evening serving hot and cold drink and snacks.
We are always looking for new ways to raise money for the school. We would welcome new members at any time; people with new ideas or those simply wanting to be involved in some way. Please come and join us and find out how you can make this school even better.
