St. Paul’s C of E Primary School

WANTED: Someone who likes treasure- and who doesn't like treasure?!

Have a look at FOSPA's advert below. Could this be you? This is a vital role within an organisation that is vital to the school. FOSPA have helped us buy so much that gives the children an experience that is more than just 'lessons.' They really do make a HUGE difference, but they need your help to keep this work up. Please contact Fiona below, or get in touch via the office, if you think you can help. Thank you.

We will be looking to appoint a new Treasurer of FOSPA for the 2018 19 academic year – starting in September 2018.  This could be performed by one person as a main role, or two people with one person taking the lead and one person supporting.

If you are interested in this role in either format, please contact Fiona Brownlee

This is a vital role to the running of FOSPA.  Please do consider this role as it is important that it is filled for FOSPA to continue its good work!

Fundraising activities raised close to £25,000 profit for the school last academic year, and we are on target to raise this amount by the end of this academic year. These additional funds are vital given the current funding crisis the school faces.

The role will be well supported by a very active team of volunteers, which make FOSPA such a thriving charity. Handover and shadowing will be possible through next term plus all past activities have been fully documented ready for handover. An overview of the role is below:
