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 this school year 2019/20 ...
Over the summer we had new red blinds fitted in the school hall. The old ones were no longer fit for use as they were broken and well past their best! We use the screen in the hall daily and with the sun on the back of the school it can sometimes be difficult to see the slides. The new blinds will rectify this problem and they look really smart too! Many thanks to everyone for your part in raising our biggest annual total yet!!
