Woodcote Primary School


Another Minibus Required! - 22nd Jun 2012

I am writing to you on behalf of the ‘Friends of Woodcote Primary School’ (FOWPS). We are a charity, registered with the ‘National Parent Teacher Association’ (NPTA), whose sole function is to raise money for the benefit of our primary school.


FOWPS has raised tens of thousands of pounds over the years to fund the purchase of items such as school furniture, educational toys, a new minibus, outdoor play equipment and much more.


However, we have just been given a new fundraising challenge – to raise enough money to replace the old minibus! It’s still limping along, but it won’t last for ever and the school need two reliable minibuses to be able to transport whole classes on trips and visits.

The money raised at the recent Circus will go towards this target and FOWPS will be running other activities over the coming months to try and reach the £10,000 needed. Popular events such as our school disco and summer fayre will continue to run and look out for details of another ‘Ladies’ Pub Walk’ in September.


In the next few weeks we will also be writing out to businesses in the local area, asking for donations or sponsorship towards our minibus target. Do you know of a business we could approach for help? Alternatively, could you spare some time to help with one of the fundraising activities? If you would rather just make a donation to the minibus fund, that would also be great. The sooner we raise the money, the sooner your child can benefit!

If you could  help in any of these ways, please would you complete the tear off slip below and hand into the school office by the 29th June.

Thank You
