Friends of Holy Rood  School is a registered charity who raise funds for this fantastic school to benefit all the children. 

Without the funds we have raised, the children would not have the amphitheatre, iPads, Chapel Tabernacle, playground equipment, and other vital facilities that enhance their daily experience at school. 

Our fundraising gives pupils, parents and families the opportunity to enjoy some memorable events – from the eagerly anticipated summer and Christmas fairs, discos, quiz nights and Mother's/Father's Day sales.

Friends is a flexible group made up of both working and stay-at -home parents who come together with one common goal – to raise as much money for the school as possible.

Whatever your situation, volunteering is a great way to use your skills for a truly great cause. It is also an opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation as you. We meet at various times and are always looking for new volunteers and people to join the group, so if you think you may be able to help us in any way – whether it be helping to plan an event, running a stall, baking, wrapping presents at home or just donating a raffle prize, then get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
