Who are we?
We are fortunate to have a Friends of group that has been an integral part of the school community for many of years. During this time the Friends of Holy Trinity have raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the school’s facilities.
Formerly the PTA, The Friends of Holy Trinity become a registered charity (1157377) in June 2014, providing wider opportunities for fundraising. At present we have 9 Trustees and we meet on a regular basis to plan events and activities across school. We are well supported by other parents and teachers within school and actively encourage new members to join us.
Friends of Holy Trinity is also about much more than simply fundraising. The Friends of Holy Trinity exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the committee members or FoHT helpers.
During 2016/17 we purchased a Bible for all children in Upper Foundation and Christmas gifts for all children in Foundation and Key Stage 1. Additionally we covered the full cost of the coach for the Year 6 leavers trip and made a contribution towards the cost of other school trips.
The main focus of our fundraising efforts this year was to enhance the outdoor play provision in the junior playground and we were delighted to contribute £5000 towards this.
