The Friends of Bradstow charity supports the work of Bradstow School, giving a specific platform for fundraising for extra facilities and resources for our children and young people.
Money raised through summer fairs, raffles, quizzes and other fund raising initiatives is paid into the Friends of Bradstow Fund.
Last year we were able to support the school in gaining Variety Buses, sensory play equipment in our Sensory Garden, outdoor exercise equipment, the Poppy Proms in the Park event and more.
We are currently working hard to raise funds towards our very exciting new indoor sensory and library projects.
