About the Friends of Hillcrest
The Friends of Hillcrest is a voluntary group of parents and carers that, over the years, has raised thousands of pounds for equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education. But FOH is about much more than just fundraising. It exists to forge closer links between home and school, and is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and carers together in support of Hillcrest.
Funds are raised throughout the year from whole community events such as the Winter and Summer fairs, film nights and year group activities such as storytelling picnics, cakes sales and discos, as well as pre-loved uniform sales and one-off fundraisers such as the Christmas cards.
The money we raise together is used to fund all sorts of things to enrich our children's school experience, for example: the Scrap Store Play Pod, the new, lightweight staging for the hall and the refurbishment of the KS1 library.
All members of the school community can get involved even if you only have a small amount of time to give - any help throughout the year is invaluable. You can also volunteer to be a Committee Member or a Class Representative - each class needs two Reps.
Everyone is very welcome at meetings - you don't need to be a committee member - and it’s a great way to be involved with the school community. Events and meetings are advertised on the school website, in the school newsletter and on our notice board in the KS1 playground.
We are always looking for parents and carers to get involved. If you would like to donate some of your time, or have comments, queries or suggestions, then please speak to your Class Rep or drop us an email:
