Friends of BTHCC

 

The newly established Friends of BTH was set up in May 2019, We have some great plans and we are always looking for more Parents and Teachers to join the Friends of BTH committee and get involved in various aspects of the school.

If you are a Parent, Carer, Grandparent or anyone with an affiliation to BTH you are automatically a ‘Friend of BTH’ it is then up to you how much you wish to get involved in the school.

Meetings

BTH PTA aim to hold one full committee meeting each half term.  These are held in the evening, usually over a glass of wine!

The next meeting date will be announced on Parent Mail and the school’s Monthly newsletter.  Please try and come along if you are able… we are always very happy to see new faces!  There is no pressure to do or say anything at the meeting, just come along, enjoy a glass or two and find out what is going on in school!

Upcoming events ….

Friends of BTH organise numerous events throughout the year to enrich everybody’s time at our school. Events are varied and can be for the pupils, families or adults only!  Whatever the event, they are always great fun and enjoyed by all!

If you are a little short on time, don’t worry!  There are lots of other, very easy and very effective, ways to pitch in:

Easyfundraising is a great way to help raise money for the school at no cost and very little effort to yourself.  Almost every retailer imaginable is listed, including Amazon, Ebay, John Lewis etc.  These retailers will donate a percentage of your purchase to School once you checkout.  Please see the EasyFundraising website and search for Blessed Thomas Holford to sign yourself up.  The donation reminder and app make it incredibly pain-free to use.
