Parents and Friends Association (PFA)

The Edward Worlledge Friends’ Association is a charity fundraising committee (charity no. 1047086) run by parents of children at the academy, some of the staff and community. It helps provide all those little extras that enhance the children’s lives. 

All parents automatically become members of the Friends’ Association when their child joins Edward Worlledge.

The social and fund raising events organised by the energetic and successful Friends’ Committee continue to provide money for much needed facilities and resources for the children.

Most activities are designed to be ‘family events’ but there are some that are aimed specifically at a solely parent audience. 

The academy is indebted to the work of the Friends’ Association and all the parents who support us. 

Friends events take place throughout the year and have included: 

  • Family fun evenings 
  • Fashion shows 
  • Discos 
  • Quiz nights 
  • Summer and Christmas fayres 
  • Coffee mornings 

Through such events, we have raised thousands of pounds. These funds have enabled the academy to provide extra, valuable resources for the children to use. We have also provided funds for  musical instruments, computers, play equipment, trips and many, many other items. 

The success of the Friends’ Association depends entirely on the support of all parents, staff and the community. We greatly appreciate any assistance. This can be anything from a little time spent helping out in the background, to coming along to the functions with friends and family or by joining the Friends’ Committee. 

Share your fund raising ideas with us, we are always open to new ideas and welcome any suggestions from an idea for a stall at the fayres to a suggestion for a whole event!
