Friends of West Rise

Registered Charity No 1014785

The Friends, a registered charity, was formed 20 years ago to fundraise for the school, and to help and provide refreshments at school events such as sports days and school productions.

 We also support national events such as Children in Need.

The Friends is run by a small group of trustees with help from parents and staff.

All members of staff, parents and carers are automatically members of the Friends.

We hold regular fundraising events such as discos, Xmas fairs, coins around the playground, Easter egg raffles, tombolas, sponsored-spelling and times-tables competitions.

Over the years we have purchased various items for the school including the adventure trail, picnic benches, books for the library, digital cameras, televisions and audio equipment.

Every year the Friends pay for all the children to see a pantomime performance at school by a theatre company.
