About Friends of Wallands
Friends of Wallands (FoW) is a registered charity, run by a group of friendly parents, and supported by many wonderful Wallands volunteers and staff. Every parent and carer is automatically part of Friends of Wallands and everyone is welcome to get as involved as they would like.
We put the fun into fundraising for Wallands Primary School and when you help out with, or come along and support a FoW event, you are supporting our school and all of our children.
Our events raise money for new school equipment, e.g. for sports, creative activities, music, IT and more, helping to fund school improvements such as book corners, play equipment and nurture areas and making special trips and experiences available for all our year groups.
Fundraising is a team effort and whether you bake a cake, donate your jumble or come along to any of the varied events we organise, every bit of help is so valuable to our school.
We hold FoW meetings either in school, online via Zoom, or in the pub!
Meetings usually take place in the evenings and are held in September, December, February, April, July. All are welcome!
Specific dates and details will be shared via the class WhatsApp groups, social media and parentmail .

The current FoW Committee is:
FoW Co Chair � Emma W
I have two children at Wallands in Year R and Year 4. I absolutely love being part of the unique and wonderful Wallands community. When I'm not brainstorming with the FOW team I'm mostly working in local government and making mosaics.
FoW Co Chair -Laura H
I am really pleased to be part of FoW and to be able to help raise funds for our lovely school. I have two children at Wallands, Jet in Reception and Essie in Year 4. When I'm not busy doing the school run and all things FoW, I work with a range of arts organisations and theatres around the country as a Project Manager and Artist/Educator.
FoW Co-Secretary - Holly A
I am an ex Wallands pupil, a child of an ex Wallands teacher and now my two children are very happy at the school. The community at Wallands is one of its great selling points and it is great to be able to help build our community as part of the FoW team. I work in employment and skills for the county and at other times spend lots of time 'making stuff' and enjoying other parts of Lewes life such as the Pells pool, the Depot and the beautiful Downs!
FoW Co-Secretary - Becky T
I regularly find myself volunteering to help out at school events - I can't help it! Now I'm pleased to be on this year's committee as co-secretary.
I'm mum to three children, my oldest Jacob has just finished his time at Wallands to go on to Priory (Year 7), then I have Samuel (Year 4) and Cecily (Year 2) who skip happily up to Wallands each morning.
My time is split between looking after a busy home, running and working in digital marketing. I am proud to be on such a great committee and look forward to helping continue the fun and help raise those extra funds for our lovely school.
FoW Treasurer - Darren C
I've had two children at Wallands over the past four years and currently have Iris in Year 5.
I've helped to organise Wallandsfest in the past and as FoW treasurer I am helping to navigate the choppy waters, rules and regulations for fundraising in times of Covid-19! When I'm not keeping tabs on the finances and thinking of new fundraising ideas, I can be found cycling with my son, producing music, walking the dog, building houses and helping clients with their accounts!
