Everyone connected to West Wimbledon Primary School can contribute to FOWW. As well as parents, staff and children our group is open to relations, neighbours and friends of the families in our school. We also call on the support of local businesses and community groups.
FOWW organises events, large and small that benefit our school community, enhance the experience our children have and that raise money for extra school resources. We hope that the positive effect of what we do is felt by every child in our school.
FOWW is a registered charity. Having charity status allows us to use donation websites such as www.uk.virginmoneygiving.com for all the sponsored challenges that our members undertake. We don’t expect everyone to run a marathon for us but some people already have! We can also claim the Gift Aid from these sponsorships and other donations.
We know that the children really look forward to extra, fun events in school. A highlight of our calendar is the Summer Fair. An event like this needs lots of support. If you would like to sponsor a stall, demonstrate a national dance, plan the event or help on the day please contact our school office.
FOWW also organises smaller events and services for our school community. We hold sales of second-hand school uniform each term which prove to be very popular. We are currently fundraising to create an outdoor learning space in the schools quad which is underused. Visit our facebook page for more information.
We keep our meetings informal and everyone is welcome. To see our meetings dates and the plan for our events please read our newsletter by clicking on this link. If you would like to get involved, please do contact us via the school office. No-one needs special skills or lots of time to help. The important thing is that you want to be a Friend of West Wimbledon.
To contact us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The FOWW mailing list is the best way to stay in touch. Just drop us line – and if you’re on Facebook, we’d love to accept you into the closed group at: www.facebook.com/groups/HelloFOWW
Volunteering just an hour at an event makes a big difference. But there are lots of other ways to help. Do you have ideas for fun events or fundraisers? Do you work in a business that could donate raffles prizes or sponsorship? And if you do have special skills – from carpentry to accountancy – please let FOWW know.
If you can help please, contact us at email@example.com
