Friends' News

Latest update from the Friends of Sherburn Hungate

Spring Term 2018


Welcome to our first official Friends' newsletter. We aim to keep you updated with all our fundraising activities.

Friends work together with the school leadership team and teaching staff to raise money for all the children at Hungate. The funds we raise help buy new equipment such as books, sand, toys etc; pay for experience days such as the recent Circus Skills; support the upkeep of the school when budgets are stretched; contribute to travel costs for school trips, plus many other items. We are all motivated to help the school improve the learning environment which should ensure our children are happy and at their best every day.

How do we do this? - by volunteering at school events (Discos, Christmas and Summer Fair, Gala day to name a few) and attending occasional committee meetings to share ideas and plan the fundraising events.

Please contact us if you would like to know more...

Competition Time

We need a new Friends' logo, and we need you to help us! If you're a little bit arty or a wizz with digital images, we'd love for you to design us a brand new logo. You could win a £25 WH Smith Voucher if your logo is selected! The competition is open to adults and children alike and the logo can be hand drawn or computer generated. Good luck! Closing date for entries is Friday 23rd March 2018.

Christmas Fair - A Huge Success

While Christmas may now seem like a distant memory to many, the success of the Christmas Fair still lingers on. What an amazing amount of support we received! Thanks to everyone for coming along and making it a Christmas Fair to remember.

Where do our funds go?
