The Friends of Brabin’s have a long tradition of supporting Brabin’s School. An active committee plans fundraising events and social activities.
All parents become automatic members of the association when their children join the school. The headteacher attends all meetings and there is excellent support from other staff members.
Each autumn term ‘The Friends’ organise a Food Bingo, held at the Village Hall. This is always a well-attended event being very popular with members of the local community. In recent years Dinner Dances have been well supported and raised substantial funds. Other activities have included; triathlon, movie night, quizzes and bingos. Proceeds from these fundraising events are used to enrich the children’s school environment.
The Friends of Brabin’s are now registered with Amazon Smile. We would be very grateful if you can spread the word, and in addition to yourselves, get friends and family to choose the Friends of Brabin’s as their charity to support on Amazon Smile.
