The Friends of Priory are a small group of parents who raise money for our children’s school. We hold various fundraising events throughout the year which are always enjoyed by those who attend. These are a good opportunity to meet other parents and the staff. There are usually at least two meetings a term.
Monies raised from fundraising in the past have bought the lighting and sound systems in the school hall, football kits, Router table and Extractor for the Technology Department, furniture and equipment for the Every Child Matters Centre in the school and many more items from which all our children benefit from.
Members have dwindled over recent years and we are keen to welcome new faces and ideas to help us achieve more fundraising. If your child attends Burscough Priory Science College then you are automatically a member and are welcome to any of the meetings. We now have this page on the school website to keep all parents informed of future fundraising events as we know it is difficult to attend all meetings as we all lead busy lives.
We also run a 50:50 Club and annual membership costs £25 for one allocated number. That contribution is then split 50:50, £12.50 to school and £12.50 goes into the prize draws which are drawn monthly, 1st Prize £60 and 2nd Prize £15. The more people that join, the bigger the donation and the bigger the prize.
