Fundraising

The school has an active Fundraising Group that organises regular events and social activities, including the Christmas Bazaar and the Summer Fayre.

The money raised funds a wide range of additional activities and extra resources that help to make teaching and learning even more enjoyable within the school.  

The Fundraising Group consists of parents/carers of children at the school.  New members are always welcome and regular meetings are held at the school to discuss fundraising events and new ideas.

We value whatever contribution you can make whether in terms of giving time, arranging company sponsorships, donating items to sell at our events or manning stalls at the Summer Fayre.  We are always open to suggestions for new social and fund-raising ideas.

For further information regarding the Fundraising Group, please contact Mrs Coe, Deputy Headteacher, on Tel: 01268 754124 or email admin@robertdrake.essex.sch.uk
