Friends of CFS (Fundraising)

Friends of CFS

We are very fortunate to have an active Friends of Cobham Free School which is an association of parents, teachers and other individuals and organisations that support the school. The main purpose of FoCFS is to advance the education of the pupils in the school, particularly by developing effective relationships between the staff, parents and others associated with the school, and by engaging in activities or providing facilities, equipment or funding which support the school.

FoCFS organise a wide variety of fundraising events throughout the school year, including:

  • CFS Grand Ball (pictured)

  • School fairs and family fun days

  • Movie events for pupils

  • Christmas bazaar & shopping events

  • Quiz night

  • Comedy night

Support for Friends of CFS

FoCFS would welcome volunteers to help support the various projects and whole school social and fundraising events organised throughout the year. We have a critical role as parents to support these projects and fundraising efforts in a variety of ways be it financial, time, skills, ideas, organising, contacts and enthusiasm.
