The Friends of Dene are primarily a fund raising body run by parents, teachers and governors who are willing to give up some of their time to organise community events and fundraisers. We meet on a regular basis to discuss new ideas and plan future events.
Most recently the funds we have raised have been used to provide a free community sports event which held when the Olympic torch came to our school, and has also helped to part fund new tops for our award winning girls rugby team and sweatshirts for children on a school trip to France. We help out the Prom committee, and individual students who may require financial assistance to enable them the same opportunities as others. We have also raised funds for Butterwick House Children’s Hospice.
For the last two years we have held a Christmas Fayre in school which is very popular event that Dene House Nursery and Primary children also attend. We always welcome new ideas and people to help out by giving their time, so if you are interested in joining us please feel free to contact on the school number.
