Friends of Trinity was founded in April 2008 before the school was even built. We arranged our first fundraising stall at the 2008 Portishead Carnival and another at the Portishead Flower Show in July. Our first big event at the school was the Ladies Pamper Night, which was a huge success. This was followed by many other successful events including our annual Christmas and Summer fairs, Craft Fairs, Toy Sales, Clothes Recycling and quiz nights, to name but a few! We also organise the Trinity School float for the annual Portishead carnival and were overjoyed to win first prize in the schools’ category in 2011.
The success of these events has enabled us to purchase many items for the school, including iPads, playground equipment, staging, pianos, a speaker system and even an outside classroom! If you are community spirited, enthusiastic and keen to support our school we would love to invite you to our next meeting. We are a friendly bunch with lots of great ideas, but we do need a few more willing volunteers. You could be a parent, grandparent, auntie, uncle, friend or neighbour. Please note that all volunteers will need to complete a CRB check form to comply with our safeguarding procedures. There are two ways in which you could support the school. Either as a volunteer - we’ll keep a note of your details and contact you when we are holding an event just to see if you are available to help – or, alternatively you may consider becoming a committee member (‘officer’). To be an officer we only ask that you try your best to attend our monthly meeting held on the first Thursday of each month and get involved! If you are interested in becoming either an officer or a volunteer, then please contact us via our pigeon hole at school and one of the FoT team will be in touch. We look forward to welcoming you!
