Welcome to the Friends of St Joseph's section of our website.
We are a group of parents and teachers who help the school run events with the aim of raising additional funds which can then be used to subsidise projects in the school as well as helping with the costs of transport for days out.
Our main events are:
Christmas Fayre and raffle
Summer Sports Day BBQ and raffle
We also run Film Nights after school, as well as cake sales in the playground plus our Rags to Riches collections of clothing for charity twice a year.
The money raised over the year has provided:
A smart screen for our new classroom
Coaches for various school trips
Christmas presents for each child
Sports equipment for PE lessons
Resources and board games for After School Club
We are a voluntary group and we can always do with extra hands to help plan events. Donations of raffle prizes are always very gratefully received as well as ideas for new events we could try out!

Your School Lottery
Unlike most other lotteries, Your School Lottery lets you support your local school directly. We believe in the principle of raising money through the community for the community.
As a supporter, you can join for as little as £1 per week and for this, you will have the chance of winning a guaranteed weekly prize for someone within your school community. The more people that participate, the bigger this guaranteed prize becomes and the more money raised for your school.
On top of this, you will also be entered into a separate draw with a chance to win an amazing £25,000 EVERY WEEK! We are the first lottery organisation that provides both a guaranteed weekly prize AND a potentially life changing win.
