Who Are Friends of Walkington School?
The Friends of Walkington School Committee are a group of parents who volunteer to meet and organise fund raising events in order to raise much needed money for the school. Funds raised buy essential equipment for the children, to enhance their learning experience and time at school.
If you would like to join the team or can offer help at any of the events please speak to any member of the committee or leave your details in the school office – thank you.
Friends hold regular events such as our end of term school discos, for both KS1 and KS2 children. An annual summer fayre held on the school field, with the usual tombola stalls, book stalls and games for children and adults alike and events such as our pre-loved school uniform sale providing a great opportunity to grab a bargain whilst saving the planet.
Dinner Dance – Held March 2016
A fabulous occasion held at Cave Castle with entertainment provided by Soul Patrol who had us dancing into the small hours. Raffle tickets sold prior to the event and on the evening helped to raise a staggering amount of money, with prizes awarded compliments to Pipe and Glass, Sessions Spa, Cave Castle, Cottingham Parks and Beverley Parkway Cinema.
The whole event was match funded by Barclays Bank who also attended the evening as our guests and with their help the event raised a wonderful £4,000. On behalf of Friends and the school thank you to all who supported us.
Where Do We Meet?
All our regular meetings are held in the Ferguson Fawsitt starting at 7.30pm. Please see the school notice board or the website for confirmation of forthcoming meeting. Our final meeting within the academic year is a lovely social occasion where we enjoy a meal and well deserved drink.
Interested in Joining Us?
We are always keen to welcome new members, so if you have just a few hours to spare, or can offer help with some events, please come along to the next meeting and see where you too can help.
We look forward to meeting you.
