Gosden Children First

  • Chair – Simone Brinkworth
  • Vice Chairs – Verona Perry and Penny Biggs
  • Treasurer – Philippa Inskip
  • Secretary – Jennifer MacKay

GCF is made up of parents that wish to volunteer as a PTA to raise funds that will directly affect the children of Gosden House School.  Our main objective is to support the education of the pupils in the School and promote effective contact between parents, staff and pupils and to channel the goodwill of parents wishing to assist.

We engage in activities which support the school & we ensure that all money solely impacts the children.

Our year is always full of activities but it goes without saying that we would not be able to do half of the events if it wasn’t for the continued commitment and support of the committee.   Everyone works really hard to make every event a success as well as being enjoyable.  We are a good team and contribute in many ways and really pull together when needed.

We are proud because of the number of projects we have taken on and the money that we have managed to raise has been so great for the school.

We have supported the school with things like trips to the opera and Matilda, transport to sports events, digital cameras for each classroom and ipads for the secondary school.

We organise fundraising activities such as Quiz night, summer BBQ and our every popular Christmas Fair. We also raise funds using Cash for Clothes, The Giving Machine and other fundraising sales such as Christmas cards.

Gosden Children First Summer BBQ

We are sure that all those who attended, will agree that the Summer BBQ was a great success.  The weather was perfect and everyone seems to enjoy themselves.  The event raised £415.33 which is fantastic considering it is more of a social than a fundraiser.

Those of you who have been attending since the first BBQ will have realised that the BBQ has gradually grown in numbers.  If you enjoyed it this year, why not encourage other parents in your class to bring their children along next year.  The children love seeing their friends outside of school but this isn’t always viable so this is a great occasion to be able to get friends together.

Cash 4 Clothes

Thank you to everyone that continues to support us in collecting unwanted clothes and linen.  This is an easy project for us that we have tried to do twice a year.  On Monday, 16th June we raised another £209.86 for Gosden Children First.

Cranleigh Carnival

Thanks have to go to Cranleigh Masons.  They hosted a stall on Saturday, 28th June at Cranleigh Carnival selling books and childrens’ toys.  They invited Gosden Children First along as all the proceeds raised on the day are being donated to Gosden Children First.  On the day we raised £150.10 and then the Masons kindly donated another £50.00 making a total of £200.10.
