Welcome to The Friends of Bowsland Green page

Here you can see all the amazing things the “Friends” do for the school, and also find out what exciting events are coming up.

Why do the school have a “Friends”?

We are a registered charity and our main aim is to raise funds and provide enrichment activities for the children that would not be feasible within the current school budget. We are very fortunate to have a committee of parents that volunteer their time to help plan and run events which not only raise money but also engage the school community and bring children and their families together.

What do we do?

Throughout the year we run a number of events and fundraising activities to raise money. However, it is not just about the money! We are passionate about being able to use that money to fund experiences for the children, such as the recent Science Day, Medieval Feasts, or something fund like a movie night or disco.  We meet about once a month to discuss what the school may need from us and how we can achieve it with minimal cost, but also how we can raising those funds enjoyable. Our meetings are open to everyone, so please check out our Facebook page or email us FOBowslandgreen@gmail.com if you’d like details of when the next one is.

Who are we?

Emma Moore- Chairperson
Rhian Woodman- Treasurer
Amy- Secretary
Dawn Russell- Committee Member
Steve Marshall- Committee Member
Nichola Palmer – Committee Member

We also have a number of people who come to meetings and offer to help when they can. This is always very welcome”Many hands make light work”, as the saying goes!
