The Friends organise lots of different events throughout the year including a Christmas Shopping Day for children, Christmas and Spring Fairs, a Summer Ball for parents, cake sales, raffles, auctions, second hand uniform sales, camping event, quiz nights, film nights and discos. Every year we like to add in a few different events (eg sponsored walk, 80s disco, circus, family camping) and we are always open to new suggestions!
Payments may be made by cash or cheque (payable to “The Friends of St Lawrence Primary School”).
Please check back regularly as we add new events all the time as the year progresses. 

During the Autumn Term 2016 we managed to raise a staggering £7329.70 in just one term! This is an amazing amount for a one-form entry school. We achieved this through refreshment sales, cake sales, Apple Week, Film Night, Wine tasting, Christmas Fair, Christmas Shopping Day, kids designed T-towels, kids designed Christmas cards and donations.

This money has gone towards funding more furniture for the Library following the re-development of the layout last academic year, wood chippings for the play area to ensure a safe area for the children to play in, the Year 6 World War 1 workshop, Forest School Christmas parties, the furniture for the Hazel Hut, furniture and resources for the ELSA room, a PA system for the school to use and lots of Christmas crackers to go with Jackie's yummy Christmas lunch! 


This term we are continuing to fundraise for the re-development of the KS2 outdoor learning areas following the KS1 re-development over the last 2 years. 

Summer Fair
Saturday 17th June 2017
We have a fantastic day planned for you. There are loads of great things going on; climbing wall, Paintpots (pottery painting), orienteering challenge, Lucky Dip, Lego competition, coconut shy, hook a duck, bouncy slide, face painting, nerf guns....) buy (jewellery, plants, second hand uniform, pocket money toys....) eat (bbq, candy floss, sweets, ice cream....) and drink (beer, Pimms, soft drinks....) plus the event is being launched at 11.45am by a whole school performance which the children have been hard at work practising and is not to be missed! 
Since it looks like we are going to have a beautiful, sunny day please bring a picnic rug and spend the afternoon with us, we are trying to create some areas of shade for you and you can keep yourself cool with a trip (or two) to the refreshments tent. There are plenty of things to keep the children busy while you relax – we still have a few spaces for Paintpots, they can spend time doing the football challenge and the orienteering challenge and for something a little quieter the Lego competition should while away some time....and they might even win some Lego to take home.
