Bleasby School Friends Association (BSFA) is a registered charity that aims to raise money to help fund our lovely village school and enhance the learning experience of all of the children within our school.
National government education cuts have meant the school’s budget has to stretch further than ever. The less pupils on roll means the less money the school receives. We aim to help Mr Mensah’s vision of providing our children with a varied and enriching education and rely on support from Bleasby school families, friends and the entire community to achieve our mission of financially supporting our school to ensure our children have all of the provisions required to flourish in their education.
As a charity we have various different ways of raising money from school discos, Christmas and Summer fairs, cake sales, raffles, our break the rules day, easyfundraising website and app, AmazonSmile and we get involved in local community events such as The Dog Show and Apple Fest.
Since the Covid restrictions began in March 2020 we have been unable to host any of these wonderful annual events, therefore we had to be more creative with our fundraising and in January 2021 we completed a virtual walk from Land’s End to John O’Groats and set up our first ever crowdfunding page on Justgiving as we wanted to make it easy for supporters to donate. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/bsfa-bleasbycofeprimaryschool
Team work is key to our success, we aim to meet at least once a month and everyone is welcome, either as a trustee or as a friend that wants to offer support in whatever capacity they can, we are always delighted to welcome new team members and ideas! Due to the National Pandemic we are currently holding our meetings via Zoom, please see our News and Events page for future meeting dates.
If you would like to get involved in any capacity, we’d love to welcome you onboard. Please make contact however suits you best;
