Friends of Winkleigh School

What is FoWS?

We are a small group of parents which raises funds for Winkleigh Primary School.  These funds supplement the school budget and help to pay for things like new learning resources, improvements to the school, activities for the children, and playground equipment.

Here are some of the things we helped fund last year…

New courtyard area in school

Resources for the Reception class and Preschool

Year 1 and 2 – Otter and Butterfly and Aquarium trips

Year 3 – Roman day

Year 4 – London trip

Year 5 – Bude surfing trip

Year 6 – Woodlands trip

World Book Day activities

Space Odyssey day

How do we raise this money?  School discos, Fireworks night, Winkleigh Fair BBQ, bacon roll drops, Grow a £ competition, Easy Fundraising donations from online purchases, to name but a few!

We are always happy to welcome new members to the group.  There are five of us at present, but many hands make light work, so if you feel you would like to join us, please contact us on:

If you are a business, and would like to make a donation to FoWS in return for some advertising, please contact us on the above email address.

If you shop online, please consider choosing us as your Easy Fundraising group.  Every time you shop online with a participating retailer (inc. Amazon), Easy Fundraising will channel a donation from that retailer into the FoWS account, at no cost to you.  Please visit to find out how.

Thank you for your support over the past year.
