Friends of the School - Albury
Albury School has a hardworking Friends’ fundraising association which aims to raise money for the school and promote community events. The Friends’ committee is mainly made up of incredibly supportive parents who meet on a relatively regular basis to plan forthcoming events. The Friends are always looking for new ideas and enthusiastic volunteers to join them. The Friends of Albury School is a registered charity.
Local links are encouraged to help the children’s sense of involvement in the surrounding community. Throughout the year the school supports fundraising for local and national charities, raising money for those less fortunate.
The Friends of Albury Primary School Committee currently consists of:-
- Chair - Sammy Whines
- Vice Chair - TBC
- Treasurer - Weston Steimel
- Secretary - Rachel Waight

To enable online payments for Friends' fundraising activities, we now offer parents the opportunity to pay using BOPP payments on their mobile phone or computer. Advertised events and activities will include a QR code or Paylink where quick and secure payments can easily be made directly to the Friends. When using BOPP, please remember to tick the option for 'Gift Aid' as by doing so we will be able to claim the 25% Gift Aid tax relief.
