Friends of North Curry School
The Friends of North Curry School (FONCS) do a truly magnificent job at raising such vital funds for the school. They are continuously coming up with new fundraising ideas and are actively involved in the school.
FONCS raise money to buy lots of extra things, go on trips, have visits from travelling theatre companies, arrange school discos etc.
If you are a parent and you would like to become an active member of FONCS please enquire at the school office. They have regular meetings and anyone is welcome to go.
Please join in!
What is FONCS?
FONCS or ‘Friends of North Curry School’ is a registered charity run by parents volunteering their time in order to raise much needed money for the school.
What does FONCS do?
FONCS organises a variety of fundraising events and initiatives with the aim of raising money to buy and fund resources and activities for the children that fall outside of the schools budget.
What is the money raised by FONCS spent on?
Every penny of the money raised by FONCS is spent on things that directly benefit the children. In the past money raised has helped to fund a set of iPads and interactive whiteboards. Some
of the items on the ‘wish list’ currently are:
• an outside reading area for the playground
• another interactive whiteboard for Minnows
• more library books.
How can I get involved?
Most importantly we need everyone to support the events by coming along!
We understand that not everyone can commit their time regularly due to work, family and other commitments but if you have any ideas, contacts for raffle prizes, equipment you are able to lend for events such as lighting, marquees or barbeques or would like to help in any other way please get in touch with the FONCS team by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
How the children are getting involved?
The children designed the current logo and take part in sponsored fundraising activities.
Do you shop on Amazon?
Would you like the school to benefit from every purchase you make on amazon at no extra cost to you? FONCS is now registered with AmazonSmile. It’s really easy to register by visiting smile.amazon.co.uk If you use the Amazon app on your phone go to settings and tap AmazonSmile. Amazon will then donate 0.5% of the value of all your eligible purchases to FONCS!
What if I can’t commit to helping but want to donate money?
Why not set up a regular Standing Order to the charity. FONCS has a bank account which you can set up a standing order
into directly if you would like to do this. Even just a couple of pounds a month really adds up.
