Friends of Mersey Vale
We are a group of parents/carers, friends and neighbours of Mersey Vale Primary School.
Our aim is to raise vital funds to enrich our children's experiences at school.
How often do we meet?
We meet half termly to plan and organise community and school events throughout the year. When we have an event coming up, we meet together more regularly to share responsibilities and work together to ensure it is a success.
Who is welcome and needed?
If you can spare fifteen minutes, or all day, everyday we would really like your time, help and ideas. Everybody has something to offer, even if it’s just another pair of hands, we would really appreciate your support. If you have young children, please don’t be put off by not coming to the meetings – we welcome all!
When is our next meeting?
2:30pm, Monday 2nd October 2023 - we will be planning our Christmas Fair, delegating roles and responsibilites for organising this annual event and thinking about our next steps.
How Our Fundraising Events Make A Difference To Our Children
Throughout the year, we hold fundraising events such as fairs, food festivals, discos and non-uniform days to raise vital funds to enrich our children's experiences at Mersey Vale. Due to the generous donations of our whole school community we have been able to subsidise the cost of educational visits, such as our Y6 residential, making it more affordable for our families as well as purchasing exciting resources for our children to use in school.
Our Recent Fundraising Events
During the Summer Term, we held a 'Food and Drink' festival which raised £528.81. This money is being used to purchase outdoor equipment for our EYFS children, such as bikes, trikes and a mud kitchen!
Raj from Davora (who is an ex-pupil of Mersey vale!) has very kindly donated a large stock of Eid cards to school for fundraising purposes. These will be sold to parents and children by FOMV in the school office and during our events. Thank you Raj!
