FoA Christmas Fayre 2017

The Friends of Linthwaite Ardron are a group of parents who meet once a half term and plan fun events for the whole school to enjoy.  The meetings are open to All, and we are always looking to welcome new parents, or receive new ideas on what events you would like us to organise!


Friends of Linthwaite Ardron run fundraising throughout the year, with all of the money raised used to fund extras for the school.  Over recent years we have helped fund and run annual Leavers Party,  Summer Fair, School Discos, Class Christmas Presents, the fabulous Mosaic in the entrance hall, the Outdoor Wildlife Area and the much loved Vintage Post box in the office. 


This year we have taken on a ambitious plan to transform the Outdoor play areas.  Our target over the next three years is to raise £30,000!  We aim to achieve this through extending our fundraising to include new activities which will be open to both School Families and the local community.   Work will be phased to commence as soon as funding limits are in place, to ensure that the children can benefit from the new playground work as soon as possible.


How are we doing? 

Thanks to amazing help and support from parents, the community and local businesses we are fast approaching being able to commence Phase 1, reaching  a whopping £6,762.13 we are getting close to Phase 1 target of £10,000!    Made up from a healthy balance of £4,151.16 from previous years' fundraising, and a fabulous response to last term's activities, which raised £2610.97.
