How can you help?
We run a preloved uniform shop during term time - keep an eye on class dojo, on the school facebook page or contact Natasha on 07973 337531.
Recycle, save money and donate to the school all at the same time!
If you have any preloved uniform, Christmas jumpers or book day costumes to donate, please drop it in to the school. We particularly need KS2 purple stuff.
Donate your time
We always welcome helpers - new and old. It doesn't matter how many grand/children you have, how old you are or what your background is. If you are willing to get involved, you will have something to offer. You might be a wonder at wrapping, super at shopping, brilliant at baking, have tonnes of time or endless enthusiasm. Or simply willing.
Vacancy: Grant applications
We are looking for someone to take over the grant applications. This is particularly important given the amounts we need to raise over the coming few years. If you are good with details, organised and reliable please come and join us! The role is explained in more detail here or please email us firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more. If you don't think you can take it on alone, maybe you could operate as a team with someone else?
The Vice-chair doesnt really have a defined role as such - they are there to support the chair and generally be helpful! If you're interested in taking this on, please contact us to have a further discussion.

Does your employer offer Match Funding?
If you work for an organisation that has a match funding policy, any money you raise could be matched by your employer. Companies may match the fundraising total for an event, or for the stall that their employee is working on. Usually, the employee will need to supply them with a letter from the Friends detailing the date and nature of the event, together with the total raised.
We understand that the high street banks, building societies, supermarkets and large corporations are likely to do match funding, but these schemes are not exclusive to the major corporate giants. If you work for an independent company, they may be interested in charitable giving through match funding too.
We would be grateful if you could see if your employer has a match-funding scheme, or if they are willing to match fund any of our events.
Do you shop online? If so, you could be raising essential funds for the Friends of South Malling School. And it won't cost you a penny!
