Friends of Manorbrook
Friends of Manorbrook raises funds to benefit every pupil in the school.
Who are Friends of Manorbrook?
Friends of Manorbrook (FOM) is a registered charity run by parents who organise events for the school and the wider community.
These events include our very popular Summer and Christmas Fayres, discos, quiz evenings, cake sales, Scarecrow Trail and more.
Over the past five years, FOM has raised an incredible £50,000 for the school, which has been used to purchase items including interactive whiteboards, laptops, iPads, football kits, ukuleles, coaches for the annual pantomime trips and much more! This year we are fundraising to replace the elderly and dilapidated playground equipment.
Everyone is welcome to join, we are a friendly and sociable group and a great way to meet other parents while helping the school at the same time.
If you would like any more information, you can contact your year rep or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
