The Friends of Loughton Manor First School (FLMFS) was established in November 1997, shortly after the school first opened. It is a registered charity which is run purely on a voluntary basis by parents and carers of children attending the school. We hold a variety of fundraising events throughout the school year in addition to various smaller projects.
Over the years, FLMFS has raised substantial amounts of money which have enabled the school to purchase items that enhance the educational experience of the children at the school. In the past these have included:
ALL money raised goes towards items in the school, be it library books, the newly created sensory garden, new equipment in Forest School, or supplementing external school trips.
Fundraising events need lots of preparation. We organise the events, delegate tasks, come up with ideas, go shopping for supplies, and liaise with the school and parents and that is all done BEFORE the actual event takes place. Despite the occasional bouts of mania, we all have fun and it is a great way of making new friends. When you see the children’s faces light up, at a Disco or the Christmas Shop for example, it is all worth it.
