Parents and Friends of Hillside

The Parents and Friends of Hillside Special School organisation is a registered charity.  By having a child at the school you automatically become a member.  The Parents and Friends organise fund raising and social events.  We hope that as many families as possible will actively support these events, which not only raise money for pupils at the school but also provide an excellent way to meet new friends for companionship and mutual support.

Aims

Our main aim is to organise fun events which raise money towards the purchase of equipment in school.

Through the work of The Parents and Friends, the school has benefited from:

  • A hydrotherapy pool
  • A minibus
  • Outside play equipment
  • Many other items that enrich the teaching and learning environment

Our most recent fundraising event was our Christmas Market. Our pupils and staff had made Christmas decorations, gifts and cards to sell and we held a raffle. It was very well supported by families and friends. Thank you to everyone who came along!

If you would like to be more actively involved in the planning of events and joining the Committee when they meet, please contact the school office and someone from The Parents and Friends of Hillside will get back to you.

 

Donations and Fundraising

If you would like to support us by making a donation or fundraising, this can be done through our Just Giving page.  Alternatively, please contact the school; we would love to hear about your fundraising ideas and your support!
