We are a small group of friends and relatives who raise money for the School. Our aim is to provide special experiences for our children in addition to buying items or equipment for Riverside that the school’s budget cannot supply.
Everything we do is aimed towards enhancing the schools’ curriculum as well as developing our children’s, social and emotion well being.
Every year we commit our fundraising efforts to many good causes.
Pay for the running costs of one of the school minibuses.
Pay for every teacher to by an individual Christmas present for each child in their class.
Pay for the school’s Christmas Party.
We also help out with individual school projects. Over the past few years we have:-
Brought the school a Bouncy Castle.
Paid £2,500 for raised flower beds, gardening equipment and a greenhouse.
Contributed to the Food Technology Room.
New Sound System for the Hall.
How do we raise money?
Every year we hold a number of fundraising events. However, for us at PAFORS its not all about raising money.
Our recent events:-
Riverside Winter Wonderland where children can visit Santa’s Grotto, play games, buy Christmas presents and eat, drink and be merry.
Summer Fayre with lots of stalls, tombola’s, raffles, games, face painting, pony rides, ice cream and fun arena events.
How can you help?
We are always looking for new volunteers and you have spare.
We only meet a couple of times during the year. So if you like to help plan an event, run a stall or even approach a local business for a donation then please get in touch as we would love to hear from you.
