Friends of Brentford School Charitable Trust

The Friends of Brentford School Charitable Trust have held two meetings this term.

The Brentford School Charitable Trust aim is to bring together parents/carers and staff to fundraise for the school. The Trust are in discussion as to what the priorities are for the school and this will be  fed-back to ensure the fundraising is focused and links directly back into school.

There have already been some wonderful ideas to start of the fundraising including:

  • A Christmas wrapping stall
  • Staff V parent cricket match – running a BBQ and refreshments
  • Alumni summer ball – running the refreshments

Additional ideas which are been looked into are cash back schemes, the idea being parents/carers relatives etc who spend at various retail shops online, a cashback scheme enables the retailers to give cash-back to the school as a thank you, this can then be fed into the fundraising.

Help needed for different events:

  • Thursday 7th December: serving refreshments at Y11 parents evening 5pm-8pm
  • Monday 18th December: Christmas Fair Christmas Wrapping stall 18th December 3.20pm-5.30pm
  • Thursday 8th & Friday 9th: February: School play February pm performances times to be confirmed.
