Dear Parent

Balloch Fundraising Group - BFG


The BFG exists to provide the School with financial support for planned annual activities as well as specific one off purchases. All of which help to add the sunshine to our children's educational experience!

Over the years funding has gone towards purchasing many items for the school including a chess matt and pieces, rugby shirts, headphones, planters and storage, a piano, goal posts and even spare clothes for children.

Annually, the BFG fund Xmas Crafts for the children, a Senior Citizens Coffee Morning, transport for the pantomine  and ice cream for sport days.

More recently the main focus for fundraising has been to provide a new Trim Trail, and last year the Get Smart campaign achieved its goal of providing a Smart Board for every classroom in the school. The gala day and other activities raised an amazing £13,776.

So what is next for 2016?

This year the school would like BFG to help them provide the following items for the children.

  1. A new outdoor Chess set

  2. New cameras for every classroom

  3. A Cyber Buddy Play by Hopscotch Theatre

  4. New gym equipment

  5. Updating the books in project boxes

 

To help us achieve our target the following activities are being organised

  1. Monster Mash Disco in October

  2. Christmas cards by Cauliflower

  3. Lucky Squares at Parents Evenings

  4. Xmas Event

  5. Easter Disco - 23 March

  6. Balloch Gala Day - 6th June

  7. Selling of school uniform

 

Did you know that the BFG raised over £550 last year from uniform sales? In previous years uniform sales even reached over £1300! So if you are able to support the school by buying your uniform through the BFG you can be sure the money raised will go back directly to  help the school


Don't forget we also have an account on www.easyfundraising.org.uk - last year we raised £95, but we could do so much more!

BFG meet one evening each term. It is run by parents and we always need extra support for events  such as the disco, xmas event and gala day. We welcome anyone on the committee, however much time you can spare. If you are not able to commit time then buying into our activity is equally as important.

Best Regards 

Moira Unwin, Chair BFG
