We fund raise all year round by holding events such as a Summer Fayre, Christmas Fayre, Easter Egg Hunt, discos, magic shows etc. All money raised helps to buy new equipment for the school and we have contributed towards buying a gazebo, basketball stands, playground markings and picnic benches as well as making contributions towards the cost of the school trips.
Friends of Brinkley Grove is a registered charity.
None of the events could take place without the support of teachers, parents, family and friends who are willing to give up their time to man stalls, sell raffle tickets, make cakes, help out at events and be part of the FOBG committee.
If you are able to spare time we would be delighted to see you at our next meeting on Tuesday, 11th September at 6.00pm. Our meetings last about an hour and involve discussing and planning upcoming events and tea and biscuits. We always welcome new ideas so please come along and share them!
You can contact us at FOBGS@brinkleygrove.essex.sch.uk or leave a message in the blue FOBG box in the school office reception, or contact Sue Young (Chairperson) 07934424157.
