We are a group of Mums, Dads and teachers who meet regularly to plan events and fundraise for Bemerton St John Primary School in Lower Bemerton, Salisbury. All money raised directly benefits the pupils at this school. We get involved wherever we can to help the school and try to spread a little happiness along the way.
Our most recent fundraisers:
This was a very busy, happy occasion. A massive thank you to the FoBS team who worked so hard behind the scenes, and to the enthusiastic Year 6s who joined us to bring a wide variety of stalls. We were so pleased that Father Christmas was able to join us, despite his busy schedule this time of year, and was wonderfully assisted by his elf. We are absolutely delighted and amazed to share with you our record-breaking total of £2,254.20.
The children had a great time at the School Disco on Friday 2nd February. There was a good turnout and the children enjoyed the dancing and return of Disco Dion.
The 50:50 draws are now taking place each month. Congratulations to the winners of our most recent draw.

We were delighted to help the school purchase a trim trail for the playground, giving all year groups an opportunity for physical challenge and play. It has been very well received by the school community.
We have also been able to use our funds to purchase 8 new gazebos for the school, providing shade in the playground on hotter days. These were most useful on Sports Day, allowing each class to stay out of the blazing sun between races.
We are currently fundraising for a playground shelter to provide an all-weather area for the children to use throughout the year.
We are always keen to welcome new members to join our friendly group.
If you would like to get involved in any capacity, please speak to one of us in the playground or email us at email@example.com
