What do we do?

Each year we run a rolling programme of fundraising events.  Typically these include:-

  • School Discos
  • Christmas Fair
  • Quiz and Chips
  • Summer Fair

Please take a look at the school calendar for forthcoming events. We are always trying new events, so if you think we have something missing from our schedule, do let us know.

We also facilitate other fund raising activities such as ‘Bags to School’, Christmas Cards and collection and counting of vouchers, such as Sainsbury’s active kids.

How to join?

We are always on the look out for volunteers – you can make a commitment that suits you. You don’t need to be a committee member if you don’t want to. Just dip in and out as you wish.

  • We are always looking for people who can lend us a pair of hands.
  • Maybe you’ve got skills or contacts that would come in handy.
  • Got a head full of ideas? We’d love to hear from you.
  • Are you new to St William’s and just fancy getting to know people? That’s absolutely fine too!

Whatever your contribution, it will be appreciated. Please join us, or let us know what you think.
