Friends of Larkfields Junior School
The Friends of Larkfields is a group of parents / carers that was formed to provide facilities which support the school and advance the education of the pupils. We work closely with school to organize events that not only raise funds, but provide a fun, social element for the school community.
The money raised helps the school pay for the extras that aren't covered by its own budget. Through our fundraising we have been able to provide school with a new library, playground equipment, books, musical instruments, stage lighting and a PA system and to contribute towards a 'Trim Trail', school trips for all year groups and educational assemblies and visits.
The rules that govern how the Friends of Larkfields is run can be found in this document:
Chair – Caroline Murtagh
Vice-Chair - Ainnee Naeem
Treasurer – Liz Pickard
Secretary - Rachel Doar
Members - Laura Coucill & Gail Rowark.
Here's how can you join us:
We are always looking for more parents to plan and help at the events, so if you would like to get involved, either as part of the committee or as a helper, please contact us. Whatever time you can spare will be greatly appreciated.
You can contact us by E-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to one of the committee

For example, employees donate their time to run a stall at a fundraising event and the company will match whatever that employee raises on that stall. If anybody works for a company that offers this scheme and are willing to donate their time at one of our events, please contact us.
