Friends At Bredon (FAB)
We are a group of parents and staff who meet regularly to plan fundraising activities to support the pupils and staff at Bredon. The funds we raise are put towards fun events such as the Halloween Party, Bonfire Night Fireworks and Christmas Fayre, and also pay for extra equipment such as digital cameras and a pizza oven to name but a few…
FAB is also the force behind Bredon School’s delicious home-produced Apple Juice which we promote and sell at many school events throughout the year.
One main aim of FAB is to offer friendly support and resources for parents, grandparents, carers and guardians. We hold regular social events for those who can come in to school, and we also host an online Facebook social page to include as many people as possible, appreciating the wide geographical spread of Bredon families. Please look us up on Facebook.
We host informal coffee afternoons from 2-3pm in the dining room on the third Friday of the month, before Exeats and on the last day of each term. We also arrange informative talks for parents and carers whenever possible; for example, Bredon’s Mindfulness & Wellbeing Support Officer, Mr Wood recently held a mindfulness information session for parents.
In addition to all the fundraising activities at school, we have a fundraising channel for FAB that everyone can be involved in, all over the world.
Please look up www.easyfundraising.com and search for our cause – FAB Bredon School Tewkesbury. You’ll be able to raise money for FAB funds if you shop online at any of the thousands of registered companies such as Amazon, John Lewis, M&S, Easyjet, Boden, iTunes, Apple, Joules, Halfords, Selfridges… to name but a few.
You can download the App to your phone, or if you use a PC or laptop you can register and sign up for ‘Donation Alert’. This will remind you which companies will contribute to our Easyfundraising when you go their websites.
