The Friends of Princecroft School (FoPS) are a group of parents, grandparents and carers who fund raise throughout the year, with all the money raised going to projects that benefit all the children within the school. FoPS is and has been an integral part of the school community for a number of years. Thousands of pounds have been raised and spend on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s educational experiences and school facilities. We organise the Christmas Fair, Summer Fete, Mufti days, pancake races, discos, quiz nights and bingo evenings throughout the year. As in most schools, the majority of our funds are raised through the events we run. So you can see there is always something going on.
The FoPS are about much more than simple fundraising, we exist to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too – just ask any of the committee members or helpers. Obviously, as in any organisation, we have experienced some challenges but with the continued support of parents and staff, FoPS has always succeeded in its efforts.
If you would like to get involved we are always looking for new volunteers whether you can spare the time to come and be involved with the Committee or help on a stall at a fete or bake a cake any help is much appreciated. If you would like to be involved please contact us on The Friends of Princecroft School Facebook page, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the school office.
We are a registered charity (Charity No: 1092784), which means we are accountable to the Charities Commission.
