Friends of the School
Wichelstowe Festive Frenzy Fun Run
The Friends committee are a group of parents, teachers and members of the local community who volunteer to work together to organise events and activities to raise funds to benefit the school and its pupils. We welcome anyone who would like to offer their support the Friends committee by helping at events, helping us gain sponsors or by becoming an active member.
All funds raised by the Friends committee are used to benefit the children of East Wichel Community Primary School & Nursery.
