Friends of Fynamore School Association (FoFSA)

FoFSA was started by an enthusiastic and dedicated team of parents, friends and staff when the school opened in 2001. The main aim of the group has always been to support the children and school by organising fun events and raising money to provide extra resources and equipment to benefit the children. During 2012 for example, FoFSA donated £7,790 to the CASTLE project, which was raising funds to improve the outside areas around the school, purchased 6 new cycle pods for the playground and gave art materials to all classes for wet playtimes. FoFSA has also funded the Year 6 Breakfast Club for SATs week since 2012, and has bought presents from Santa, funded the Class Christmas presents every year and purchased a large number of books for the school library. ln 2013-14 FoFSA funds paid for 32 iPads in school. This year FoFSA has paid for a large number of outdoor signs for the playgrounds.

                  

The group continues to play a valuable and important role in the life of the school. We do hope you can support us: new members are always welcome! 

 

FoFSA is a Registered Charity (number: 1094415) and is a member of the NCPTA.

 

Fundraising

The FoFSA Committee plans many interesting and varied activities during the year to appeal to both children and families. These include the School Discos, Popcorn Nights, Bingo Nights, the Christmas Shopping Evening, the 'Spooky Stories' events and the Christmas and Summer Fayres.

 

There are also several regular fundraising activities which help to generate income right through the year. These include the following:

 

Clothing Recycling Bank

We have a Bristol Textile Recyclers clothing donation bank at school. It is located by the bike racks near the car park. If you have any unwanted textiles, please place them in the clothes bank. The bank is for the donation of unwanted clean clothes, bags, belts, soft toys and paired shoes (no duvets, pillows or plastic toys, thank you). FoFSA will receive a payment of £300 per tonne of donated clothes, so please help us to fill the bank.   

 

Easyfundraising 

Raise funds for the school while you shop online. Simple to register and use, at no extra cost to you. Easyfundraising also has a safe and reliable search engine which generates income for us every time you use it. Please click here for further details.

 

FoFSHOP

At our monthly FoFSHOP we sell nearly-new school uniform. FoFSHOP is usually held on the last Friday of each month in the school hall from 3.00 to 3.30 pm (see the school Newsletter for confirmation of dates). Donations of unwanted or outgrown, good quality, purple uniform are always welcome. Please bring any donations to the school office.

                  

If you have any new ideas which could generate regular income, please let us know.
