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 me in school any time!

Total raised so far 2017-2018...
Over the summer, thanks to a £10,000 National Lottery Grant, we are having a track around the field laid. 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 will be providing scooters to be used on a weekly class rota and also zebra crossing markings painted on the track to teach and encourage road safety, allowing safe passage for padestrians into the centre of the field.

A NOTE FROM US........
Your generosity and support is second to none...thank you!
The school budget is getting tighter so our help is needed more than ever to ensure that resources and equipment are kept up to date to aid the education of our children. If you can help at any event, I would love to hear from you!!
