QEHS Parents Friends Association
The PFA was set up in 2017 with a small committee of 6 people. We were asked by the Music Department if we would raise money alongside them to help fund a minivan to transport the Steel Pans. We held several fundraising events to include bingo, fashion show, cake sales and raffles with support from students, the school and the Bromyard community. In our first year we raised a fantastic £3000 which was put towards leasing a new minivan.
In 2018 we were approached by the Physical Education Department for help to raise funds for outdoor table tennis tables and outdoor basketball hoops. They were looking to raise approximately £5000 for this project. This was a large amount for a small group to raise and so the PFA decided to apply to the Co-operative Community Funding Scheme. The PFA is extremely grateful to the Co-operative Funding Scheme for having chosen them as one of the causes for the year. On Saturday 23rd November 2019 the PFA was invited along to the ‘The Big Co-op Pay Out’ with representatives from QEHS and were delighted to receive just over £10,000.
As a small committee we are always on the lookout for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends to join us. We also have a database of helpers who would rather not be on the committee but are more than happy to help at events as and when they can.
