About Us

FOCS fundraising campaign for Carswell Community Primary School

Carswell Community Primary School is at the heart of our community and supports our children and families to be happy together and enjoy learning for life. Friends of Carswell School (FOCS) is the parent teacher association for the school. As a charity, we raise funds to support our school to ensure every child gets the most out of their time at Carswell.

Virtual summer fair

FOCS is hosting its very first virtual summer fair this year! The event is hosted via a Facebook group, where local businesses and entrepreneurs have stalls to promote their products and services to the local community.

We are reaching out to the local community to support local small businesses with stalls on our virtual summer fair Facebook group. We are also delighted to invite local businesses and budding entrepreneurs to set up their virtual stalls in this group. So, whatever you do, please join our virtual summer fair Facebook group (by searching in groups on Facebook for “Carswell Primary School virtual summer fair”).

We kindly ask vendors to donate £5 per stall, plus a raffle prize. You can give your £5 donation by clicking on the “Donate” button at the top of this page. Please make sure you include your stall name in the message field when you donate so that we can identify your donation.  An admin will PM you once you have set up your stall to advise where to drop off your raffle prize donation.

Instructions to vendors for advertising: Please create an album in the Facebook virtual summer fair group by clicking on “Media” (under the FB page banner picture), then click “+Create Album”. You will then be able to name your album as your stall name and add photos and comments to explain what you are advertising. You can update your album up to twice per week until the end of June 2021. Please contact an admin if you have any questions.

In return for your generosity, we will proudly promote your business and offer our thanks through our communications to the wider school community, as well as through our social media accounts on Twitter (@FOCSfeed) and Facebook (Friends of Carswell School FOCS). Thank you so much to all stall holders for your support!

Forest school garden area

Our virtual summer fair is being held to fundraise for enhancing the school’s garden area to give our wonderful teachers a chance to include forest schooling within our curriculum.

If you are a UK tax payer then please choose to Gift Aid your donation so we can claim the extra whopping 25% to each and every pound donated!

Thank you very much for your kind donations and support in sharing this page as widely as possible.
