Friends of Beaufort

THE FRIENDS OF BEAUFORT SCHOOL

The ‘Friends of Beaufort’ was formed in 2008 by parents and teachers of the school. Once your child joins the school, you will automatically become a member of Friends – how actively involved you become is entirely up to you! Our primary aim is to raise additional funds for the school and the children. This is done by fundraising and social events providing opportunities for parents, teachers and children to raise funds while having fun!

We hold 3 major fundraising events every year which are Fireworks Night, our Christmas Fayre and our Summer Fayre. In addition, we host ‘adults only’ social events such as our popular ‘Quiz Night’ and school discos once a term for the children.

 

Through these numerous events, we have managed to raise funds for a wide range of items, including a school minibus, colourful rugs for every classroom, gazebos to protect the children on sports days and in hot weather and a great many resources for the children, including Early Years equipment. This is to name but a few.

During the last couple of years we have raised more than the minimum amount required to become a charitable organization. This will allow us to claim gift aid on future sponsored events and to claim money from companies, such as Bupa, who often sponsor their workers who help out at charity events by ‘fund matching’.

The Friends of Beaufort has grown increasingly strong over the past two years, buoyed by the support of many parents, grandparents, teachers and other interested parties and we continue to grow stronger still.

The Friends committee welcome any family members/carers and other ‘Friends’ from our community and are open to new ideas or suggestions.

If you would like to become more involved with the organizing and running of these events or can help us out in other ways then please contact us at friends@beaufort.surrey.sch.uk

We look forward to meeting you!
