Friends of Severndale (“FOS”) has been a registered charity since 2003. FOS is a group of parents, carers, staff and friends fundraising for projects to support students at Severndale Specialist Academy, and organising social events for Severndale families.
The Covid19 pandemic has made for a particularly difficult and isolating couple of years for families of children with learning disabilities, so we are more determined than ever, this year, to make a difference to the lives of Severndale children and their families. We have a busy year of events planned – both fundraising events and events to benefit Severndale students.
FOS Family Disco
In February, FOS was delighted to host its Family Disco for the first time in over two years. We had over 100 attendees, and families came from all over the county, many having never been to a FOS event before. Whilst FOS doesn’t aim to make any money on the disco – our main aim for that event is to bring all our Severndale families together socially - we’re pleased to report that some serious pizza and cake was consumed and we made £224!
