Albury & Puller Nursery & Primary Schools

Friends of the School - Puller


The Friends of Puller Memorial would like to say a big Hello and welcome to all parents and children!

We are a small, hard-working group of parents who, through fundraising activities, aim to provide extra facilities and activities to enrich the existing objectives and direction of the school.

All our efforts are to raise money to benefit our children.

We have successfully set up and held events all through the year; some have raised significant sums of money and some which have raised only a little, but everything has been enjoyable for the children (and parents!). The school budget cannot cover everything, so the money that we raise, and the memories made from our events means a lot. So, thank you for all your support!


The Friends of Puller Memorial currently consists of:

  • Chair – Danielle Anderson

  • Vice Chairs – Charlotte Palmer and Andie Kunning

  • Treasurer – Jacyln Chandler

  • Committee members – Ellie James, Daniela Rollings, Charlotte Parkins, Arabelle Coles

We are always looking for new ideas and enthusiastic volunteers to join us. We meet on a monthly basis and anyone is welcome to come along.

Please email us if you can spare anytime (you don't have to attend all the meetings!), it's great to keep a list of parents who can be asked to support at events. 


What's been done so far?

The Friends have been busier than ever over the past few years. We have had...

  • Frost and Summer Fayres

  • School BBQ’s and campouts

  • Discos for the children

  • Quiz nights

  • Cakes, doughnut and ice cream sales

  • Competitions

  • Sponsored walks and triathlons

We are also registered on Easy Fundraising. We really encourage parents and any family members to ‘like’ our cause and raise money for the school simply via online shopping.

How do we fundraise?

With school budgets getting more stretched every year, we are always thinking of new ways to raise funds for the school.  Our fundraising to date has come from a variety of sources:

  • Traditional school events, such as the Frost and Summer Fayres, and term time discos for the children. 

  • Raffles throughout the year, supported by local businesses via prize donations

  • Sales of fundraising products to families; ice creams, bakes, tea towels and branded shopping bags - some of which are designed by the children.

  • Cash donations and donations of equipment by community members and local businesses

What are we fundraising for?

We have been so busy raising funds to go towards the school’s major refurbishment plans but the end is in sight and we've successfully reached our target! A massive THANK YOU to all the parents who helped us get there!

However, we never stop! Our focus this year is on supporting the school enrichment activities and helping to create lived educational experiences. We will also aim to purchase and donate any needed supportive learning equipment in the school. We plan to help support the safety of the school with purchasing new fencing for our Early Years area.

Of course, we will run our normal array of events to help the school's community thrive. For more information, please see our diary below. 


We have set up a Go Fund Me page to help collate contributions.

How can I help?

If you would like to get involved or can help in any way at all then please let us know! We love a chat and any new fundraising ideas… 

In person: Committee members are normally always at school each day.

Email us:

Message us via the Puller Memorial Facebook

We meet monthly but if you can't make the meetings due to work or other commitments you can still get involved! Some parents just help at the events or do the essential jobs 'behind the scenes' such as producing posters, letters, preparing items for stalls etc, if they cannot be at the event itself. Any time you can give will always be appreciated so please let us know if you can help. 

If you are a local business who would like to get involved, from sponsorship to donating a raffle prize, then please do not hesitate to contact us via email above.
