Friends of Eldon Grove Academy is a fundraising group, made up of various members of staff and parents. We raise money throughout the year to benefit the children of our school.
We meet once every half term to reflect on our events and to plan what we aim to do next to raise funds.
So far this academic year we have held a Christmas Fayre which proved to be enjoyable and very successful and have organised school discos, Time to Shine, a cake sale and a sponsored penalty shootout. There will also be a staff versus children football match in the not too distant future and our traditional Strawberry Fayre will take place in July.
With the money raised from these events we have recently purchased £3000 worth of new books.
Reception children took part in a Chinese New Year work shop and a donation to Hartlepool hospice was made. Some of the most recent proceeds from these events will be donated to the Y5 children towards their London Trip.
If you have any suggestions or would like to join our group, new members are always welcome.
