Friends of Ixworth Free School
The “Friends” are a group of parents / carers who organise regular social and fundraising events throughout the year to support and raise money for the school. Please keep an eye on the school calendar and this page for any upcoming events and the latest news from the “Friends”.
The 100 Club is back!
The 100 Club lottery is to raise extra funds for the school. It is drawn at the end of each month by a student and then winners are notified.
50% of the money raised each month is distributed as prizes, so if 100 numbers are sold the monthly prizes are: First Prize £25, Second Prize £15, Third Prize £10
There are 10 draws made each year, starting in October and ending in July. It costs £10 (£1 per draw) to enter for the year.
If you are interested in joining and supporting the school, please fill out this form and return to the school office, together with cash or a cheque for £10 made payable to ‘Friends of Ixworth Free School’ as soon as possible.
