Friends of St. Mary's School - FOSMS

FOSMS cake 2


We are a friendly bunch of parents who organise various fund raising activities throughout the year to raise money to fund special projects at St. Mary's. As a registered charity we are able to claim gift aid on all donations. 

We are always delighted to have volunteers to help and there are lots of ways that you can get involved by: 

  • coming to meetings;  
  • attending events;  
  • helping out at events;  
  • sourcing raffle donations;  
  • baking cakes;  
  • thinking of original and interesting fundraising ideas; 
  • providing moral support!  

Our major project this year is raising money to support the school's playground appeal.   This is a significant undertaking for the school and we need to raise as much money as possible.   
In 2018 we have our usual calendar of events including bedtime stories, the summer Fayre, Christmas Fayre and Christmas Lights Switch On. This year we are also hosting a Race Night at Witney Lakes Resort in March and a Family Fit & Fun Day at the Windrush Leisure Centre in May. These events are open to the wider public and we hope will generate much needed interest and funds for our Playground Project.  

We send regular news updates via our FOSMS newsletters and you can also find us on Facebook.
