Friends of Debden School
FODS is a group of volunteers that organises fundraising events for Debden School. In the last year our fundraising activities have included Summer and Christmas Fayres, a school disco, children’s film nights, a ramble and barbeque, Rock and Roll bingo night, a Christmas gift sale and a Christmas card art project. We are hoping to raise over £3000 this year to spend on things for the school and children.
Recently we have made a donation to the school for the purchase of new iPads and new books for each class to support the Pie Corbett “Talk for Writing” programme. We have also subsidised a Christmas Pantomime to entertain the children on the last day of term. In previous years we have purchased staging, curtains, PE kits for school teams and lunchtime play equipment as well as funding parties for the children.
We meet approximately every 6 weeks for 1 hour before end of school to plan fundraising events. Our meetings and events are advertised in the school newsletter and on our Facebook page (friendsofdebdenschool). We welcome all volunteers to our group and are always looking for new ideas, and we sincerely hope that you will join us at our next meeting.
Clare Samson, Chair of FODS.
