We raise money in as many ways as we can think of; last year the Friends raised over £11,000! Our main fundraisers are the May Fair - this year raising an amazing £4,000 - and the Christmas Fair, which raised over £3,400 in December. Throughout the year we hold various social events, and we always have a presence at the FVIS Sports Day, Oakfield's summer event "Oakfest", and Fetcham Festival.
In November we teamed up with Oakfield Junior School for the second time to put on a fireworks display for the village. This was a very successful event, raising nearly £3,000 for the Friends. We also ran various other fundraising initiatives for Christmas including canvas bags, Christmas cards and DVDs of the Christmas play 'Lights, Camel, Action'.
We are always looking for volunteers to help organise these events. In particular we need people who are willing to join our May Fair and Christmas Fair sub-committees who meet in the run-up to these two events and help with the planning/decision making as to what goes on. If you are interested then please come along to our next meeting or contact Gaenor 07795 030391 / email@example.com.
