The Bluecoat Fundraising Friend or BPFF were established in January 2017, with our group being made up of parents, carers, family, friends and local community partners.
Our mission is to enrich the lives and education of our children, whilst having great fun in the process. We do this by holding events, raising money and giving back.
We have already organised many successful events, raising money and awareness of our school and its students. This includes a yummy bake sale, Easter Eggstravaganza and an awesome Monster Mash fancy dress disco, allowing our children and parents to have a whale of a time dancing the evening away.
From this we have bought playground equipment for the K1 and K2 stages playground and we have donated £1000 towards Bluecoat Primary Academy’s grand outdoor plans.
This year we organised our first MacMillan Coffee morning and helped with School’s Children in Need bake sale.
We are all volunteers, spending our spare time organising events and raising awareness. We are always looking for others to join our group and help us.
We have regular monthly formal and informal meetings, to which everyone is welcome; both during the day and evenings; enabling access for both working and at home parents.
The BPFF management committee comprise of Kayleigh Ellis, Rachel Dunks and Emma Clifford. We all have children attending Bluecoat Academy Primary.
