Friends of Doubletrees School
The Friends of Doubletrees are a registered charity (number 1027045) who work to raise funds for Doubletrees School . Our members include ex and current parents/grandparents and school staff.
We aim to raise funds through organised fundraising activities, applying for grants and other sources of funding, and increasing the awareness of the school within the local community. The money raised is used solely to benefit the children of the school in terms of new equipment, accessing activities and supporting the development of new facilities.
Some of our fundraising efforts have paid for i-pads, waterfall playsets, sensory toys, cycle helmets, Christmas presents for the pupils, leavers presents and party, new photograph displays, dance club instructor, polytunnel refurbishment and play equipment for the early years foundation stage (EYFS) area. Our most recent fundraising has supplied the school with its own defibrillator, which is now situated in the corridor by the library.
We have also been successful in applying for a number of grants which allow large items to be purchased like the acheeva bed, eye-gaze system, sensory room equipment and Cornubia Sailing trips. We are also lucky to receive a number of donations from individuals and groups who raise money on our behalf.
The type of events we hold are quiz nights, table top sales, bingo, zumba, bag packing, beer, wine & cider tasting with plenty of raffles!
We are constantly looking for new members to join and support this group. We have termly meetings which are held in school or via TEAMS so that we have the option of meeting face to face or online.
If you are interested in finding out more or would like to join, please contact the school or Gemma Stockley , Family Engagement Lead. firstname.lastname@example.org
