FRIENDS OF GRAYRIGG SCHOOL
2018 is a big year for Grayrigg C of E School! As well as celebrating the 200th anniversary of this unique gem of a rural school, Friends of Grayrigg (FOGS) have also been challenged to raise £30,000 toward the build of a much-needed new classroom. The school has increased in numbers over recent years and now has 46 children attending, with 65% of these being in Nursery, Reception and Infants. As these children progress through the school, they will outgrow the current space, so an additional classroom is needed to adequately cater for this increase.
FOGS has risen to the challenge by launching the 'Grayrigg 200 for 200' campaign, with the aim of organising 200 fundraising events and activities over the course of 2018, to celebrate this milestone anniversary and raise the necessary funds to future-proof the school.
The creation of an additional classroom would be a fitting way to celebrate 200 years and a wonderful legacy for the next 200 years, to allow children from Grayrigg and surrounding parishes to continue to benefit from the very best of starts in this small but mighty school.
Thank you for your support.
Please donate to support our cause.
The Friends of Grayrigg '200 for 200' has already begun with a series of events and activities being planned over the course of 2018 including a Curry Night, a Community Car Wash, a monthly quiz sheet, in-school activities such as 'Flapjack Fridays' and pre-loved uniform sales and many, many more.
FOGS is also encouraging as many supporters as possible to take up the '200 for 200 challenge' through sponsored 200 for 200 activities. Through this, local families and alumni both young and old, as well as current pupils and parents will have the opportunity to get involved, contribute towards the fundraising target and have some fun taking part!
THANK YOU to all of our supporters. Every penny and each offer of help is greatly welcomed.
