A very warm welcome to Friends of Willow Brook.
Friends are a friendly group of parents and carers who organise various fundraising activities throughout the school year for the benefit of our children. The money we raise is used to buy “fun things” to help make our children’s time at Willow Brook even more enjoyable.
It isn’t hard work – we just share ideas, get things done and have plenty of fun along the way.
Regular newsletters along with posters displayed on the school noticeboard will help keep you informed of forthcoming events and activities.
How can I get involved?
There are lots of ways you can get involved and support our fundraising efforts such as baking cakes, manning a stall at one of our events, helping to sell sweets at our discos, donating unwanted toys, collecting vouchers and, of course, turning up to one of our events and having FUN!
How do we raise money?
We raise money in various ways, including …
