Friends of St Botolph's
Friends of St Botolph’s is a registered charity (charity number: 1182533) that has been a long-standing part of St Botolph’s history. We are an organisation set up by parents of children attending to support the school by fundraising to help with resources, events and experiences to benefit our pupils.
We wholeheartedly believe in school and community spirit. So, whilst our main focus is to raise funds, we also focus on events which involve the school and wider community such as termly discos, movie nights, mufti days, competitions, quizzes, school uniform sales and summer fêtes. We generally hold a committee meeting once every half-term, more if needed, particularly before big events such as a summer fête, and we try to keep them as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.
Please see the notice board in the entrance foyer or our Facebook page for the latest info on upcoming news and events.

As children come and go, so do the parents that help form the committee. We have a good-sized committee but are always looking for new committee members. We also have a register of volunteers which can help events in larger or smaller roles, it may be just enough for you to stand and supervise at the disco or run a stall at our summer fête. In whichever way you may be able to support us please do. Honestly, every little helps.
If you would like to join us or volunteer in any capacity, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
