The Friends of The Windsor Boys’ School (Registered Charity Number 1154400)

The Friends of The Windsor Boys’ School are an active group of parents who support the school by organising fundraising and social events for parents and staff and raising money for the school.

We hold a black tie Dinner Dance, known as the Uno Animo Dinner every December and we provide car parking for the Royal Windsor Triathlon each June.  We occasionally organise smaller events like quizzes or Brush Parties too.  We provide refreshments at school Open Evenings and Speech Day, and sell second hand uniform.

We also sell merchandise such as school umbrellas and thermos mugs, please have a look here: https://twbs.co.uk/school-merchandise/.  Check out our new bobble hats.

We currently hold three Committee Meetings and an AGM at the school each school year, but may meet more often and more informally (in the pub) when planning an event.  Any TWBS parent is welcome to attend the Committee Meetings.

The Committee for 2020/21 are:

Co-Chairs: Julie Creed, Kate Gaskell and Lucy Gillies
Treasurer: Amanda Gibbon
Secretary: Peter Tuomey
Fundraiser (Grants etc): vacant
Social Media: Clare Warren

We welcome new members and new ideas – if you want to get involved at any time please email friends@twbs.co.uk

If you are a business local to the school and would like to sponsor a table at the 2021 dinner dance please email friends@twbs.co.uk.

FUTURE EVENTS:

Zoom Kitchen Disco – Saturday 5th December  

The Friends of the Windsor Boys’ School are delighted to bring you the ‘Uno Animo Kitchen Disco’ on Saturday 5th December at 7.30pm.

While we are all very disappointed at not being able to run our normal Uno Animo Dinner, this year we are bringing the party to you at home, so get your Tinsel and Tiaras ready, compile your request list and get ready to disco in the kitchen with all your friends (all socially distanced of course) as YOU decide the playlist for the night. Isolation FM will broadcast the music and release a zoom link so you can join up with other kitchen divas and dance the night away to the songs of your choice.

Join up, BY 5PM SUNDAY 29th NOVEMBER using our google form, and for a donation of £10 you will be entered in the Christmas Cracker Draw for a variety of prizes to be won on the night. The more £10 donations you make, the more chances of winning you have!  Sign up for the Kitchen Disco here: https://forms.gle/aRehk9NLAhhCmTSh6

In the absence of our major fund raising events this year, we hope you will take this opportunity to join us in the disco …. it will be fun in the kitchen and will help us to raise some much needed funds for TWBS along the way.

Brush Party – Date to be arranged in Spring 2021 (postponed from Friday 20th March 2020 due to Covid Pandemic)

‘Life’s a Beach’

Join us for our ‘Life’s a Beach’ Fundraising Brush Party in the Performing Arts Studio at 7pm on 20th March.  It’s all about fun….grab a drink, settle down to your canvas and unleash your inner Van Gogh!

Even if you haven’t picked up a paintbrush since school, you’ll be delighted and amazed as your blank canvas transforms in just a few hours, made all the better by good company, great music and a glass or two of wine!

You don’t need to bring anything apart from yourself.  We provide everything…. a quality canvas, all the paint you need, brushes, aprons and the environment for you to have a fun, relaxed and different night out that you will be talking about for weeks.

Tickets are £29.  All money raised will go to the Art department.
To book, please email friends@twbs.co.uk
