The Friends of Fishbourne School fete is run by volunteers from the School, the Church, the local community and FOFS. Preparations start in January each year where the theme and date is discussed and then the main work commences from March of booking marquees, training for Arena events, advertising and lots more. Fundraising usually exceeds £5,000 and this is split between the church and school, so the single biggest fundraiser of all!
There are meetings each month leading up to the date. The current team need new volunteers to take on key parts of the work, such as sorting raffle tickets, sorting donations, running a main stall etc., as more hands make light work! Without this team, the Fete could not run and raise such amazing funds for the school and church.
If you are interested in helping or have any ideas, please contact your FOFS rep.
