Friends of Cleddau Reach

Welcome to Friends of Cleddau Reach! We are a committee of parent volunteers and as such we are constantly juggling the daily demands of life, whilst giving some of our time to support our school community.  We meet regularly to plan the fundraising activities throughout the year and to discuss ways support our children’s development. 

We usually fund a mix of experiences and resources which are not funded via the Local Authority or grants, or which may require topping up to meet the total costs.  Examples of what we have helped fun on in recent years include:

  • The books and storage for the new reading scheme.
  • IT Equipment to be used solely by the children
  • Visits from authors 
  • Experiences that bring learning to life.
  • Pantos to entertain.

There are many ways you can help support us:

  • Join the committee – each year the new committee is elected. We need a compliment of officers (the chair, vice chair, secretary and treasurer) and committee members who help with the planning and events. 
  • Donate any clothes or shoes which could be used for the 2nd hand uniform sales.
  • Help at events – we often have people who want to help but are unable to spare the time for committee duties. Helpers are essential for the big events such as Summer Fayre!
  • Attend events – please support us by attending events whenever possible with family and friends too.
  • Donations – maybe your company could donate a prize to the raffle? Many will do matched funding or funding for specific projects so look out for our projects or speak with a committee member regarding this.  Please just ask your company or companies for whom you are a loyal customer...the worst that can happen is they will say no!
  • Ideas and suggestions – if we have the skills and resources, it’s great to try new things!

What do you get out of joining the committee?  Well mostly it is knowing you have had a positive impact upon the school and the chance to meet other people who form part of the school community.
