The Friends of Princecroft School (FoPS) are a group of parents, grandparents and carers who fund raise throughout the year, with all the money raised going to projects that benefit all the children within the school. FoPS is and has been an integral part of the school community for a number of years. Thousands of pounds have been raised and spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s educational experiences and school facilities. Over the years we have organised Christmas fairs, summer fetes, mufti days, pancake races, discos, quiz nights, a ladies’ night, bingo evenings and some members have even jumped out of a plane to complete a sponsored skydive!
The FoPS are about much more than fundraising, they exist to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too – just ask any of the committee members or helpers.
None of the FoPS projects come to fruition without your support, so thank you for your time and hard work so far! We are always looking for new volunteers whether you can spare the time to come and be involved with the committee or help on a stall at a fete or bake a cake, any help is appreciated.
We are a registered charity (Charity No: 1092784), which means we are accountable to the Charities Commission.
