Friends of Castle Carrock

‘Friends of Castle Carrock School’ is a group of parents, teachers and community members that come together to organise events and raise funds for the benefit of the children at our school.

We meet once a term in the Duke of Cumberland pub. We plan events and discuss how to allocate the funds raised; everyone is welcome and there is no pressure to volunteer or get roped in.

***STOP PRESS**** we have created a link with the popular Give as You Live!

Each year we supported the school by providing:

  • Year 6 leavers gift
  • Christmas presents and Christmas turkey
  • Playground refurbishment

We also organised events for children and parents to take part in:

  • Halloween Disco
  • Christmas Fayre
  • Sports Day refreshment support
  • Fundraising ‘Auction of Promises’

This year we are raising funds to continue our support of the whole school pantomime trips and Christmas Gifts. We are also providing first aid training for all pupils and an opportunity for Parents to receive first aid training.
