FOH End-of-Year Update

18 Jul 2018

18 July 2018
 
Dear Handsworth Parents and Carers,
 
As we fast approach the end of another school year, the Friends of Handsworth charity committee would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents, carers, children and staff who support us to raise funds which are used to purchase goods and services that enrich the learning of our children.
 
This past year has delivered successful events from the Christmas Fayre, quiz night and the more recent Summer Fete which alone raised a staggering £4,800.  In total, this year, Friends of Handsworth raised £9,000, some of which is used to organise the popular School Disco, Easter Bunny and Santa’s Grotto.
 
Additionally, these funds have purchased iPads, costumes, Guided Reading Books, supported in-school activities such as Science Week, school equipment and proudly donated Handsworth hoodies to the children who are ready to move onto pastures new and embark on their secondary school life. A fuller financial breakdown can be found below.
 
Many parents are involved in running the charity on a voluntary basis, working tirelessly to raise funds.  The amount raised this year saw an increase of £3,900 from last year’s fundraising.  This was possible due to increased parent engagement, and now, more than ever before, we need to get everyone involved to keep the momentum going.
 
We will therefore be delighted if you are able to join us and work with us to keep up the outstanding work.  There will be an AGM on Tuesday 11th September at 9.00am in the small hall.  All existing committee members will either step down or stand for re-election.  Elections will be held for leadership roles and/or new members appointed. 
 
There will be positions of Chair, Treasurer and Secretary to fill so we encourage you to give this some thought over the summer – it is wonderful to be part of the Friends of Handsworth community and really make a difference.  If you are unable to commit to being a member though are able to help on an ad-hoc basis with a business service or skill that will be of benefit then please do let us know - foh@handsworthprimary.org.uk.
 
Once again, thank you for all your support.  Wishing you all a restful, happy and healthy summer break.
 

 
Registered Charity Number 1175489


 

*Money raised at the Summer End-of-Term Tea & Cakes Sale and New-to-you Uniform sales will be added to this total.

Hello there, I was wondering if the information above, especially the date of the AGM and the fact that people are needed to fill positions, could be emailed to everyone? I think it will make it more likely for parents to read it and attend the meeting. Many thanks.

An e-mail went out today. See you at the AGM.
