Westbourne Fundraising Association (WFA)

 

About us

Westbourne Fundraising Association is a Registered Charity (Charity Number 1180788) that supports the school by running events to raise money for school projects. Our events include the highly successful Christmas and summer fairs, plus book fairs, raffles and cake sales. Over the years we’ve raised thousands of pounds towards a new library, interactive whiteboards, a new kitchen, beautiful landscaped gardens and a new hall. Please send us your comments on things you think were good, or could be improved.

 

Great News (November 2018)!

The parent volunteers are proud to announce that following a successful application, Westbourne Primary School Parents’ Association (also known as Westbourne Parent or Fundraising Association) has been listed with the Charity Commission and entered onto the official Register with the Charity Number 1180788!

 

The Commission recognises that the Association is a charity that aims to advance the education of Westbourne pupils by developing relationships between staff and parents, as well as helping provide facilities and equipment to support the school.

Feel free to look us up on the Charity Commission website!

This is great news and will really help boost the fundraising efforts that all of us make together for our school - parents, carers, grand-parents, friends and teachers of Westbourne pupils!

 

Achieving charitable status will bring the Fundraising Association many benefits, including:

 

 

This is quite new for the volunteers, so if anyone has experience of setting up such arrangements and would be willing to advise and lend a hand, we would be very pleased to hear from you! Please get in touch via Classlist, email wfa.sutton@gmail.com or better still, do feel free to come along to our meetings! 

 

Want to help?

 

All parents of Westbourne Primary School children are automatically members of Westbourne Fundraising Association. Apart from holding events which enable parents to socialise with each other, the Association, through its fundraising activities, generates extra funds, all of which can provide additional equipment or technology for the students.

 

The WFA Committee is made up of a group of enthusiastic members, each of whom has a designated role based on a specialist skill they hold or an experience they can share. We are a hard-working team, dedicated to making sure all our events run smoothly, and importantly make sure our children have fun whilst raising funds towards upgrades of school facilities.

 

If you would like more information about us, or would like to join our team, please check when our next meeting is and come along. Alternatively, you can contact us via the following:

 

  • Dropping a note in the WFA post box via the school office
  • Email: wfa.sutton@gmail.com
