Welcome to the homepage of the Friends of Harestock Primary School (FOS). As a parent you are automatically a member of FOS and we would love you to participate in whatever level you can.
Our Mission Statement:
Putting the “Fun” in Fundraising
Be a friend to the school
Work with the school to:
- Raise Money
- Run fun and affordable fundraising events for children, parents, teachers and the whole community
- Pay for additional activities and facilities that enrich pupils lives
What does FOS do?
At Harestock Primary we are fortunate to have an active ‘Friends of School’ who raise funds to provide extra equipment and opportunities to enhance our children’s education.
We do this through organising a variety of events throughout the year, the majority of which are for the children to enjoy, such as the Easter Egg Hunt, the Summer Fete, School Disco evenings, Cake Sales and Film Nights. Other events are focused on fun for parents, like our Quiz Night and Fashion Show. ALL children will benefit from the money FOS raise over the course of their time at Harestock Primary School.
We always need volunteers to:
- Serve refreshments at fundraising events
- Help set up an event/ tidy away after an event
- Run a stall
- Make cakes
- Make posters
- Help with photocopying
- Be an entertainer
- Offer new skills to benefit the school community
- Donate prizes
- Be responsible for entrance money…and the list goes on!

An Easy Way To Raise Funds
Do you shop online? Did you know that every time you buy something you could be raising money for Harestock Friends of School?
Over 3000 well known retailers including Amazon, Tesco, Asda, Ebay, M&S, Boden, Waitrose, EasyJet, Argos, Lastminute.com, Vodafone and many more, will donate a percentage of what you spend to Harestock Friends of School when you shop with them, via:-
Please take a look at the list of retailers before you make your online purchase, so the school doesn’t miss out on valuable funds!
How does it work
It’s like nectar but instead of earning points, each purchase generates a donation. So instead of going directly to a retailer’s website, go to the easyfundraising website first and choose the retailer you want to shop with – then everything you spend with that retailer earns a free donation for Harestock Friends of School. It’s completely free to use and your shopping won’t cost you a penny more.
On average, each retailer will donate 5% of the cost of your shopping – and those donations soon mount up.
So whatever you need to buy, from your weekly grocery shop or fashion must-have, to your business travel, office supplies or mobile phone, buy it via the easyfundraising website and raise money for Harestock Friends of School at no extra cost to you!
