New Volunteers are always welcome
The Friends of Holmwood House committee are always appreciative of help and have compiled a list of people who would be willing to help at events. If you would like to volunteer your services or find out more about what is involved as a committee member, please contact email@example.com
Our aim is to ensure that all parents and children are given as many opportunities as possible to meet one another socially and to be involved in the school events held each year, whilst raising funds for enrichment projects for our children.
The proceeds from the uniform shop and the fundraising done by the committee each year are all spend on enrichment projects for the children. The committee have funded items such as friendship benches throughout the grounds, science equipment, new play equipment in the playgrounds and they contribute to the Maths, Science and English weeks run by the school each year. This is all made possible by the support of the families of Holmwood and both the committee and the school thank you for your continued support.
