Friends of Wavendon Gate is a charitable organisation who work in partnership with the school to raise funds to enhance the children experience and provide social opportunities for the school community to meet and get to know each other. This is a valuable group and the committee are very keen to engage new support. However, you don’t have to be a parent to become a ‘Friend’. Anyone who has a connection with the school can be part of it so grandparents, parents/carers, etc are all very welcome.
How to support the Friends to Help the School?
We have different events that run throughout the school terms but on top of these you can support us by:
- Joining our school lottery and be part of our weekly draw. Https://www.yourschoollottery.co.uk/lottery/school/wavendon-gate-school to buy tickets at £1 each.
- Stamptastic – This company sells clothing name stamps which are quick and easy to apply. https://stamptastic.co.uk/ Enter our PTA code (MK77HL) in the discount box on checkout when making a purchase. It costs you no more but we get 20% commission.
- Download the Easy Fundraising app, find “Wavendon Gate School” as the cause and all you need to do is remember to go via the app for your online shopping.
How Can I join in with this friendly group?
There are so many different ways to help, and we are always grateful to all our ‘Friends’ for their time in volunteering, and even an hour on an ad hoc basis is of benefit to everyone and our ‘aims’.
Why not come along to one of our meetings and any ideas for future fundraising events would be most welcome. Dates of the meetings are always published on the noticeboard at the entrance to the school.
To contact the committee you can leave your details at the school office or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
