FOWLS


Welcome to the FOWLS section

 

Friends of West Lodge School (FOWLS) is a registered charity (Registered charity No. 282766) to raise money for the benefit of the children at West Lodge School. As parents/guardians of children attending West Lodge School, we are all automatically members of FOWLS.

 

FOWLS was set up to arrange fund raising and social events for the school community. The money raised by FOWLS in doing such events is used for the benefit of the school.

Over the past few years, FOWLS has contributed towards the installation of the CCTV, vital for the safety of the children while at school; a Celtic Roundhouse; wonderful playground equipment; a new room for Special Needs Children: the Upper School library; iPads and much more.

 

How Do We Raise Funds?

 

FOWLS is a Charity and is run by a dedicated committee of parents who have volunteered to give up some of their time to organising events throughout the school year. The money raised from these events benefits each and every child as they progress through the school. 

How do we ensure your data is safe with us?

The General Data Protection Regulation has been in effect since early 2018.
FOWLS do not collect any personal information from the school, so anything you provide to us, you agree to do so willingly, and for the purpose intended.
Your details will not be passed onto any third party, without your prior consent.
Any information we collect will be securely stored and will be disposed of within 1 month after the event it was intended for.

If you have any event ideas or would like to volunteer to help at events, please e-mail us on Westlodge.fowls@gmail.com.       

 

Volunteers are vital for the success of every event that we run and we really appreciate any time or support that you are able to offer. There are many ways that you can help. Working with the committee or helping out at an event. If you are working, your employer may be able to donate to FOWLS on your behalf, through a scheme known as Matched Giving. They will either match the amount of money you raise for us or give you time off in lieu for the time you spend helping FOWLS. Each employer has their own rules for the scheme and many companies, big and small, participate in it.

 

The document below titled Information on Match Giving explains this scheme in more detail. However, if you still wish to discuss with us any aspect of it please e-mail us on westlodge.fowls@gmail.com.

 

Local estate agent, Gibbs Gillespie, sponsors our public events, donating prizes and advertising outside the School and at local addresses. If you would like to host a board before any of our events please contact us.
