Friends of Bennerley Fields

The Friends of Bennerley Fields are very active in raising funds for our school. Over the years they have funded many projects and activities that have really benefitted the children and would not have been possible without their efforts.

All parents/carers and grandparents with children at the school can be members and we also warmly welcome members from the community, who are interested in helping our school, to join. Volunteers can be as involved as much or as little as they wish. We are always looking for new fundraising ideas and any suggestions would be gratefully received.

If you can spare any time or would like to get involved in any way please let the school office know. Tel 0115 932 6374 or email
