Friends of Halsford Park School
We are hoping to raise £6,000 to allow us to develop the school playground areas with modern, safe and engaging play equipment for the current and future children of the school to enjoy.

About this cause
We are a friendly team of parents, carers and teachers who devote time and energy to raising money for the enrichment and enhancement of school life for the children of Halsford Park Primary School in East Grinstead. We hold fundraising events for children, parents, carers and/or the local community such as school discos and film nights, quiz evenings, colour runs and summer and Christmas fairs.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Today’s society is challenged with a rise in childhood obesity, mental health issues and the struggle to build a sense of place and community. This is connected to a reduction in access to the outdoors, and we are therefore wholly aware of how vital dedicated play time is for a child’s development. It enriches social, physical and cognitive capabilities in a way that no other activity can.
