The Friday Bake Sales are held during the Autumn and Spring terms. Each class takes a turn to bake and sell to the rest of the school and the money they raise is given directly to their Teacher to spend on items for that class. The sales raise approximately £2,000 per term across the school.
How is it organised?
The FOBG Committee allocates the dates for each year at the beginning of term and email those dates to Class Reps. Volunteers are needed from each class to bake/buy sweet or savoury items and sell them. The sales are held on a Friday morning at drop off and, if there are any cakes left over, then again at pick up.
Cake Sale Pricing (a rough guide)
30p - 50p for a cup cake/biscuit
50p for a large cup cake/muffin if it looks a bit special
£4 for a plain cake like a banana loaf
£5 for a more ornate cake
£6+ if it looks really lovely and you think someone will pay that.

We can’t put on these amazing events without your help. If you can help us, we still need the following volunteers:
Magic Shows (Friday 06 December)
All parents, governors and staff are automatically members of The Friends of Bishop Gilpin (FOBG). FOBG fundraises to buy things that the school budget cannot afford.
The Committee meets twice a term to decide on fundraising activities and also on how to spend the money raised. All parents are welcome to come along to meetings.
Please come back and visit the website for up-to-date info on our events and fundraising.
