Friends of Southgate (FOS)
We are a small dedicated group of parents who meet with the school every half term to organise events to support the school, to raise money for the children and support them in having some fun!
The majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run. Some of our most popular events are the Summer Fairs and Children’s Discos. Donations are also extremely important. This can be in the shape of time, money, items for sale, donations for raffles or offers of services and skills.
We welcome new FOS members at any time of the year: you could get involved by coming to our meetings and contributing your ideas and suggestions for new activities and how to improve what we already do. You could sell raffle tickets, support or organise the running of events. You could offer your skills, contacts or useful information.
And, of course, we could not survive without all those who offer their time. Just an hour really helps: on the stalls, at the fairs or serving refreshments at school events.
Requests for volunteers are often sent out via letters or our facebook page. It is easy to get involved in a variety of FOS projects throughout the year.
Please contact us with any ideas, suggestions or offers of help that you may have. We really appreciate all your feedback and welcome any assistance regardless of how small.
