The Meadows Charity is run by the school. It helps provide all those little extras that enhance the children's lives in school.
Going forward all events will be to fund the improvement to our library facilities.
All parents automatically become members of The Meadows Charity when their child joins the school. The social and fund raising events organised by the school continue to provide money for much needed facilities and resources for the children. Most activities are designed to be ‘family events’ but there are some that are aimed specifically at a solely parent audience.
We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all the parents and staff who help us raise essential funds to support the school.

How can you help?
The success of the Schools charity depends entirely on the support of all parents, staff and the community. We greatly appreciate any assistance. This can be anything from a little time spent helping out in the background, to coming along to the functions with friends and family or by helping out at one of our fun events.
Share your fund raising ideas with us, we are always open to new ideas and welcome any suggestions from an idea for a stall at the Fayres to a suggestion for a whole event – recent suggestions have included a Bingo & Chips night, a Fashion Show & Coffee mornings. Donations play a very big role in our fundraising efforts. We are not just talking about the very important pound for own-clothes day, but prize donations for raffles and tombola’s, as well as time for running a stall at the fayre, doing face painting or nails at the disco, wrapping Christmas presents or being The Meadows’ Santa!

Maybe you work for a company who discards goods when they can’t be sold or would negotiate a great price for items we can sell or put in our lucky dips?
