Friends of Thakeham School

We are the fundraising group for our wonderful little school. We are made up of a group of parents, grandparents and teachers - everyone is welcome to our meetings, the more the merrier!

Last year we raised over £3,500!!! 

This is a huge amount for our small school; your generosity has enabled us to buy new laptops, books for the library and to subsidise coach transport for various events over the past few years. Our fundraising efforts will see a “Trim Trail” installed which the children have chosen for our new school site, due to be in place from January 2018.

Our next project is to raise funds for a canopy to provide shade for the outside area of 3 of the classrooms. Plans for this include a Fireworks event which we are sharing with Steyning Grammar School, Christmas Disco, The Christmas Fair and a quiz night sometime in the New Year.

All monies raised always go towards something the children either need or would like to have.

Our school also has an easyfundraising page too, just download the link and select Thakeham Primary School, a percentage from over 3,000 shops is donated to our cause at no cost to you, couldn’t be easier.

If you would like to be involved in our fundraising endeavours you can find us on the playground or the office will point you in the right direction, come along to our meetings, bring the children, it’s all fun and worth it!

 On Sunday 28th October, Rob Pirkis, Lawrence and Cheryl Stockwell, and Carrie and Ben Nicholls are beginning the challenge of cycling 100 miles, nearly 4,000 meters of climbing along The South Downs Way, from Winchester to Eastbourne.  Please support us to raise enough money to provide sun canopies for our school playground. Any donations will be greatly appreciated.
