Friends of Saxmundham Free School

Friends-of-Saxmundham-LogoWhat we do:
As with all PTAs, our aim is to raise funds to provide ‘extras’ for the students. Recent examples of donations would be Transport to the Leavers Ball, Grant towards Tom’s Memorial Garden and the school’s stage lighting.

Our other role is to support the school at functions, Open Evenings etc., which normally involves tea trolley duties and catering!

There are nearly 3,000 retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury’s, who will donate a percentage of the amount you spend to Friends of Saxmundham Free School to say thank you for shopping with them.

It’s really simple, and doesn’t cost you anything.
