Friends of Sunnydown (FoS)

Who are FoS?

You are!

Everyone who is connected with the school is automatically a Friend of Sunnydown, so if you are a parent, carer, guardian, grandparent, sibling, aunty or uncle, join us to support our boys!

The current committee members are:

Chair: Kelly Barnes

Vice Chair: Tom Barnes

Secretary: Lesley Goffin

Treasurer: Brian Anderson

Prize/Donations Coordinator: Carol Edwards


Our main objective is to raise funds to enhance your sons experience at the school, we also aim to encourage social interaction for the boys and their families in safe “just be yourself” surroundings, knowing that for some this can be a big challenge.

Fundraising events in the past have included:

  • The Smartie Tube Challenge
  • Quiz Night
  • Race Night
  • Pamper Evening
  • Christmas and end of year Raffles


Non fundraising events include a Christmas Fair for the boys with Secret Santa shopping for their families and friends.

  • Social Nights
  • Family Camp Night

In addition to our events, we also have a 50/50 club which is a way of supporting the young men whilst having the opportunity to win some money for yourself! For full details and the application forms, please download them from the link at the top of this page.

We meet once a term at school in the evening and everyone is welcome.

The Friends of Sunnydown Facebook group is kept continually updated with all the new fundraising and meeting dates, so do check it out.
