News from the Friends of Hungerford Primary School – October 2019
The Friends of Hungerford Primary School (formerly PTA) is a charitable organisation formed by parents, which supports Hungerford Primary to provide the best educational experience for our children. We work with the school to provide support, both financial and practical. We fund-raise, make grant applications and try to find skilled induviduals to help us. We also support parents directly with practical solutions such as our second hand school umiform sales. In addition to supporting the school in its everyday needs we are currently building relationships between the school and other Hungerford based groups to raise the profile of the school in the community.
Halloween disco (hair) raises funds
Spookily dressed children and parents had a really fun evening at our family disco last Friday night at Hungerford Town Hall. Prizes were awarded for best costumes and the best carved pumpkins. Our guests were treated to drinks, sweet treats, face painting and professional photos. We are very grateful to the following organisations, businesses and individuals for their generous support:
- Hungerford Town and Manor
- The Naked Grape
- Stuart March Photography
- Suzy’s Facepaints
- The Newbury Building Society
See you at the Christmas Extravaganza!
Friday 13 December
Our popular bottle and chocolates tombola stall returns this year. Buy some tickets, win a prize (fingers crossed) and support your local school.
Hungerford Town Hall, Saturday 8 February 11-2
Back and bigger than before! Second-hand is on trend and eco-friendly. Come and join us for a guilt free shopping experience. Refreshments will also be available.
If you can help with donations in advance of the event or donations of cakes and biscuits on the day please get in touch with us.
We are looking for a sponsor for this event to help cover venue costs and vehicle hire. This event will be marketed to every home in Hungerford with a flyer drop in January, so it’s a great opportunity for publicity. If your company is interested we would love to hear from you. Please email Hungerford.email@example.com
