Our school has many fundraising initiatives. Some of these raise extra funds for our school and others support charities, both national and international
FRIENDS OF SOUTH HARRINGAY
Our Parents and Staff Association is known as The Friends of South Harringay. On joining the school you automatically become a member of our organisation.
We are run by volunteers and we rely on the ideas, skills, help and time of people like you to make things happen.
We are a registered charity and have a committee who meet regularly. Our meetings include an AGM, which all parents and staff are welcome to attend. Our main purpose is to raise funds to support the school, as well as promoting opportunities for parents, carers and staff to come together.
The main purpose of the Friends Association is to raise funds to the school to enable them to do projects that they wouldn’t normally be able to fund or prioritise.
Here are some things that we have funded in the past:
Nursery playground equipment
The Bike and Scooter Park
The ‘Podley’ play equipment for both Infants and Juniors
Anti-pollution ivy and green coverage around the playgrounds.
We have committed to funding these projects in the future:
Adding greenery and a gazebo structure in the Junior playground
Buying furniture for the new Junior Library.
2020 has been an strange time for us all and due to strict and ever-changing regulations we have not run any events since March and have decided that we will not plan any of our usual events in Autumn Term 2020. That doesn’t mean we have completely vanished. We are still meeting and putting contingencies in place to help us restart our activities when it is safe and reasonable to do so.
In a ‘normal’ year our events include:
An annual summer fair
Curry and quiz nights
Regular cake sales
Discos and film nights for the children
If you want to donate to us whilst we are not running events there are a number of way you can do this:
When you purchase anything through Amazon log into Amazon Smile and select Friends Of South Harringay as your cause – at no extra cost to you or us.
Buy goods through Easy Fundraising with Friends of South Harringay as your cause. You can purchase from over 400 different retailers including John Lewis, Argos, M&S, Clarkes … (the list goes on).
Please encourage your family and friends to sign up too and raise even more money for the school.
Our fundraising benefits enormously from corporate match funding and donations in kind. If your employers have any schemes we, as a registered charity, could sign up to please let us know.
If you want to get involved for a one-off event, have an idea, or want to be part of the committee please drop us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org we love hearing from you – especially new people who want to get involved in some way.
