Summer fundraising activities

A huge thanks for all your support this year - and what a year it’s been! We’re sad we’ve been unable to run our usual fun events, but we’re giving one last push to raise much needed funds to benefit our children next year. 

Get uniform ready and save money too!

It's that time of year again - the children’s unforms are getting shorter and we need to think of a restock in time for September. Let’s reduce landfill, save ourselves some money and donate to Friends of Hillside too!

  • Please donate your clean, used, unwanted uniforms and leave at the back of the school hall on Thursday 8 July.
  • Come along to our uniform sale at St Paul’s Church Hall on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 July from 14:30 until 16:30. Prices range from just 50p to £3!

Break the rules day returns!

Back by popular demand, break the rules day returns on Thursday 15 July. Add the date to your diary and we’ll share more details soon.

Donation request

As you can imagine, our funds are down considerably on last year (less than half our usual total). All the money we raise goes to help the children at Hillside, to develop their learning and make their educational journey more rewarding. With this in mind, we’re asking for a donation to give us a head start going into the new school year. We know is been a tough year so any amount would be gratefully received.

We’ve chosen to collect funds using Money Pools via PayPal, as this gives us 100% of the donations without commission being taken by the online provider.

How to donate

Join Friends of Hillside

We’re always open to new recruits! Joining Friends of Hillside is so rewarding, a great way to meet other parents and to really enhance your child’s experience at school. It doesn’t have to be time consuming either. Any help you can give with fundraising ideas, or the occasional hour or two to help our activities come to life, is really valuable.

AGM week commencing Monday 13 September

If you’d like to take more of an active role, help to coordinate activities and run events we need new committee members to join the team from September. Some of our existing team’s children will be leaving Hillside this year so they’ll no longer be playing an active role. We’ll be appointing our Chair, Deputy Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Deputy Treasurer during the meeting, so please contact us if you’d like to join this welcoming and supportive team. Without more support we’ll struggle to continue so please join if you can.

If you’d like to get involved or help in any way, contact us by joining the Friends of Hillside Facebook group and sending a message or email
