Friends of Hillside update

It’s been wonderful to see the children back to school and enjoying learning with their friends after such a disrupted year. For Friends of Hillside it’s been a tricky year too as we’ve been unable to run our usual timetable of fundraising activity, so opportunities to raise funds have been limited.

Summer Fayre unable to take place

Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions in place we’re unable to run this year’s Summer Fayre. I’m sure you’ll be as disappointed as we are, as its one of our key fundraising events of the year and one of the most enjoyable! With light at the end of the tunnel let’s hope next school year we’ll be able to run an active programme once again.

Your contributions last year

With your help we managed to raise £3657 last year which is amazing given the circumstances (we usually raise between £8,000 and £10,000 per year). Even without our usual activities we’ve been able to give £3500 towards new outdoor gym equipment and £145 to subsidise the Year 6 hoodies.

A big thank you to all those who have continued to donate.

Donations request

As you can imagine, with little opportunity to fundraise our funds are down considerably on last year. All the money we raise goes to help the children at Hillside, to develop their learning and make their educational journey more rewarding.

We’re working behind the scenes to create a way for you to be able to donate to Friends of Hillside online and we’ll be in touch with the details soon. Any amount you could spare would be greatly appreciated!
