The Heber Parents and Friends (Heber P&F) is a registered charity, run by volunteers, with the aim of creating community spirit and helping the school by contributing funds for essential upgrades to equipment and for social events for all the children.
In the last school year, we raised £35,000 which exceeded our target by £10,000. We have donated £25,000 towards the school’s computer room plans. An additional £2,500 is ringfenced for spending on SEN refurbishment and facilities. We also met the full cost of yearbooks for year 6 students (£1,107), a contribution towards year 6 hoodies (£167) and various gardening expenses for the school site. Anticipating that this will be a more challenging year for fundraising, we are adding to the charity’s reserves.
This year, we aim to raise funds to transform the Crystal Palace playground into a sports playground for PE lessons and playtime. Therefore, we aim to raise £25,000 for a sports pitch surface and equipment.
There are many ways to support the P&F that can fit around existing family commitments. From buying a 50p cake at a bake sale, attending one of our events, or volunteering your time to help the P&F. We hope there is an option to suit everyone. If you like to be involved and make a difference to the school and its community, speak to your class rep or email us at Heberpandf@gmail.com.
Usually, we have an exciting line-up of social events for adults and children. This year, we might run more online events. You can find all the details here and don’t forget to save the dates in your diary.
