How you can help


We hold many events through the year and even if you can only offer 1 hour of your time it will help! You don’t need to be an expert at anything – there are lots of different things to get involved in from taking money at the entrance, selling raffle tickets to helping on a tombola. Some of the volunteer work we regularly need support with each year:

  • Volunteering at the Summer or Christmas Fairs: there are tombolas, raffles, refreshments, rides and much more!
  • Helping out at Fireworks night with ticket sales, hot drinks, BBQ and novelties selling
  • Wrapping Santa’s grotto gifts (don’t worry, all paper & tape provided)
  • Good at cooking – flipping burgers at the BBQ
  • Making tea and coffee
  • Setting up and clearing down at all our events
  • Encouraging other volunteers to assist

Did you know, volunteers normally get a free ticket or entry per person at our events, so why not save money and come and help us!

We would love you to get involved (and is also a great way of meeting new friends and other local parents, please speak to your Class Reps or email them at:
