Friends of Park Mead

The Friends of Park Mead

The Friends of Park Mead is an independently registered charity who organise fund raising and fun events throughout the year. EVERY penny raised is donated to Park Mead to support or fund projects, mainly as part of the School’s Development Plan. We meet socially once a month to organise our events program.

Getting Involved

Every parent automatically becomes a member of the Friends when their child joins Park Mead and it is up to you how involved you wish to be. We understand that we all have busy lives, but as parents you can have a direct influence on the experience your child/ren have while at this school. So, if you have a talent or qualification that you think parents or children would like to learn, or you have a fundraising idea, please let us know.

Recent Fundraising Events

Our recent events include Santa's Grotto, Car Treasure Hunt, Easter Egg Hunt, Leavers Hawaiian Disco, Refreshments at Sports Day and Bags2School. The money raised so far has paid for new playground equipment, a Forest School shelter, an online Pantomime and hopefully some new outdoor equipment. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to raise these funds.

Easy Fundraising

Spending online? Why not raise money for the school at the same time? It is so easy and once you have joined up using your e-mail address, every time you shop online you raise money for the school. Whether you are thinking about booking a holiday, shopping online (over 4,200 retailers) or simply doing your Tesco’s shop, when you make a purchase we will receive a donation to say thank you for shopping with them. It is so simple but makes a HUGE difference so please sign up!
