The FOSJ is run by parents on a voluntary basis. All parents are welcome to help at the events we organise even if they are not on the committee.

What events do the FOSJ run?

Major events include the summer and Christmas fetes.  Other events have included a fireworks night, Halloween discos, Easter egg hunts, BBQs and WalthamFEST.

Funds in the past have gone towards a variety of things such as new play equipment, laptop computers, reading books and bicycles for the Early Years children.

How does it work?

- Bags of support are collecting good quality re-usable clothes, shoes, belts, handbags, bedding and toys.

- Your child will receive a Bags of support bag in their school bag. Just fill it with your unwanted items and return it to school on the collection date stated. Alternatively you can use your own recycled bag if you prefer.

- Once our collection has taken place, Bags of support will 'weigh and pay'. They pay 50p/kilo, which quickly adds up and goes directly to the Friends of St James. An average collection will raise about £200.
