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!
Through these numerous events, we have managed to raise funds for a wide range of items, including a school minibus, adventure playground, 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 organisation. 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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
