At Ambleside Primary School, we have always raised money to support a variety of resources to aid pupil’s learning.
We fundraise in a variety of ways including, discos, fayres, non-uniform and dressing up events and much more. Our aim is to ensure that each event and activity is always a fun filled experience for all!
We are always looking for donations for our school fayres to help with our fundraising. These items can be used in our raffles and tombolas, we really appriciate any help. If you would like to volunteer in any of our events or have any donations, please see Emma Derbyshire our parent and community worker for more information.
If you are interested in having a stall at one of our events, please speak to the main office or contact Emma Derbyshire.
