Our parents, teachers and friends association is called Friends of Ashleigh (F.O.A.). It raises much needed funds for the children in our school. Support is always welcomed and very much appreciated. They make a tremendous difference to our facilities, for example their money paid for our wonderful greenhouses and garden area. Our project for 2017/18 is to improve the playground provison and we have had some fantastic ideas. We are aiming to raise £10,000 and will be holding some fantastic events! Parent helpers are always welcome in school. Please see the office or contact us via our Facebook page for more details.

Friends of Ashleigh are looking forward to 2017/18 and continuing to plan lots of new and established events. We are always on the look out for new members and even if you can't make it to every meeting, we would appreciate any time, donations and ideas you may have.
We are currently using Easyfundraising.org.uk where you can register with their website. The cause is Ashleigh Primary School, Darwen. The stores you shop with will donate offers to the school. All the main shops are available through their website.
We are selling fantastic personalised Water Bottles so that your child will never lose theirs again :) Our water bottles will have your childs first name and the initial of their surname printed on their water bottle. This also comes with a personalised blue Ashleigh cover and carabiner so that it can easily be attached to their school bag.

Please keep in touch, we are open to fund raising ideas and are always on the look out for new members/volunteers. Your help would be very much appreciated.
Please remember that all money raised will go back into projects beneficial to our children, such as upgrading our school playground, waterproof playsuits for EYFS, Trim Trail, transport costs for trips, school book bags, lunch time resources, sports kits and much more.
We will be updating the infant area of our playground with some superb HUGE musical instuments. Keep your eyes peeled! :)
