Join the BFF!

Could you spare a few hours a month?

We would love to get more people involved! We meet regularly, once a half term, to discuss forthcoming events and fundraising.  You do not have to commit to every event or meeting and you can be flexible with your involvement. You don't need any expertise or special skills, just enthusiasm!  It is very rewarding to know that the children benefit from the fundraising by the BFF. A little of you time can make a huge difference


For more information or to find out when our next meeting is please email us at
