NEXT FOBL MEETING DATE 27TH JANUARY 2PM
Who we are....
We're your PTA!
So how do we raise the cash?
We try to use the seasons and calendar events to guide the programme of exciting fundraising activities.
How can you help?
We'd love you to join us for brainstorming with ideas towards improving your school for your kids.
But you don’t have to come to the meetings to help…
Help Friends Of Bracken Lane - Retford raise money by using easyfundraising.org.uk every time you shop online.
What have we done so far?
We have had a very successful year building on the achievements of previous years. Our fundraising income increased to £10,293 for the year ending August 2016.
I think you'll agree that is a staggering amount which we couldn't have done without the help of you, the teachers and of course the children with their endless enthusiasm.
We've been helped tremendously by local businesses through stalls, donations and sponsorship. A special thank you goes to Newton Fallowell who sponsors our advertising boards and the Tag Rugby team, Gap Signs Technology for producing our summer fair advertising banners and Prima Party for donating free use of the bouncy castle for the Easter Bunny Hop.
Through the school events we’re hoping to build a stronger community involving local businesses.
What have we spent the money on so far?
We have made donations totalling £6,609 to the school this year including...
We have also recently agreed to purchase goal posts, a cricket fold, an all weather surface for under the tractor and maypole for the Country Dancers.
Goals for the future.
What our school desperately needs is a Multiple Use Games Areas or MUGA.
This highly durable specialised surface is designed to maximise the play characteristics of a variety of sports and activities, rather than being just for a single sport.
So you can guess it isn't cheap. It's a whopping £30,000!!!!
I think it's worth it. Don't you?
We won’t be forgetting all the other things that FOBL help with. We’ll be still making sure that the school gets all those little extras to help our children enjoy school.
So that's why Friends Of Bracken Lane needs you!
Do you think you could join the team? Help with ideas and fundraising events?
So join us, for all or part of the meeting. Our next meeting date will be on the school calendar.
We know that many people would love to join us but have other commitments so please email us with any suggestions about fundraising ideas or ideas to improve the school.
