Friends of Langrish School, aka FoLS
Who are we?
Hello! We are the new committee of parents from across the year groups of the school. We have volunteered our time to raise money to enhance the school’s resources, support the costs of trips and fund external companies who provide workshops in the school. We also hope to give those parents who want to be included a point of contact to get involved in fun activities and events throughout the year
Meet the team
Co-chairs: Steph Croucher, Lizzie Bibby, Carly Smith
Co-secretaries: Louise Gooch, Dave Knight
Treasurer: Tom Clatworthy
Who are we and what are we working towards?
Of course this is all for our children, the children of Langrish School. We all want our kids to have the best resources possible and a fun and exciting environment to learn in. FoLs has previously raised money for interactive white boards, library books, bikes, and workshops. We are now focused on making funds available for the nativity, forest school, an anti-bullying workshop, leavers hoodies and anything else Mrs Wright and her team feel would benefit our kids.
You can help!
VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME OR SKILLS
Please don’t hesitate to come say hi to any of us, we will always hugely welcome and appreciate any ad-hoc support for events. We are sure that throughout the school there are numerous talented parents who may have just the skills we need. We would love a few more committee members so please do get in touch: Folslangrishschool@gmail.com
We also need funds, any donations are so, so appreciated and very much needed. We have a charitable status so this allows for a limited company to pay less corporate tax when they donate to a charity. If you work for a limited company, we would be so grateful if you put us forward as their charity to support.
Our charity name is: Friends of Langrish School and our Charity number is: 1132525

RECYCLE YOUR CLOTHES
In the corner of the car park we have a textile recycle bin; every time it gets gathered up the school gets money for it so please send your old clothes our way.
STAMP YOUR KIDS NAME
Tired of sewing/sticking and re-sticking labels into your kids' clothes? Please buy a stamp, they are fab and will save you so much time and hassle. We get 15% commission when you buy through https://bit.ly/STAMPGU323PJ you can even use the discount code (GU323PJ) on a deluxe bundle.
You can allocate a small part of what you spend with big brands to be donated to us whilst you shop.
