Friends of Daubeney

Friends of Daubeney is an organisation of parents and staff. Its role is to encourage closer links between home and school and organise Fundraising events to provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together.

How is money raised?

Friends of Daubeney raises money through events. They often hold one main event each school term – for example, a Christmas fair in the winter, a quiz in the spring, and a summer fair. Other Friends of Daubeney events include school uniform sales, discos, firework displays, international evenings and many more. They’re always looking for new fundraising ideas.

Some Daubeney parents are participating in the Tough Mudder Half in Crawley on September 16th to raise money for the Friends of Daubeney and are looking for future challenges to continue to fund raise: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/friendsofdaubeney

There are many different ways you can help with Friends of Daubeney whether you have lots of time to offer or not.

Some of the roles are time-consuming, although also rewarding. If you can’t commit to a big job, look out for things you can do less frequently (eg running a stall at the summer fair, baking for a cake sale). And you can always support Friends of Daubeney events by simply turning up.
