Friends of St Joseph's
We are the fundraising team. Whether you are a parent, guardian, grandparent or friend of a child at St Joseph's you too are a Friend of St Joseph's. Together we can make a difference by raising money for those extras that the school budget may struggle to pay for.
Keep an eye on this page as it will always be up to date on what we are doing, what we have done and how much we have raised after each event.
If you can help out at any event or have any fundraising ideas please contact the school office at any time!

Total raised so far this school year ...
Last summer, thanks to a £10,000 National Lottery Grant, we had a no-maintenance track laid on the field. This will encourage a daily mile walk/run for both children and parents before school/during playtimes/afternoon brain breaks/ PE lessons etc.
Friends of St Joseph's have bought 15 scooters to be used on a weekly class rota and also markings painted on the track to teach and encourage safe use.
Forthcoming Events 2018/19
Our fundraising for this year is now complete. Please send in any remaining sponsor money as soon as possible.
