Volunteer with Friends

Friends Needs You!

We are always on the lookout for parent helpers and ideas for new, fun events. ‘Friends’ is a great way to meet the teachers and other parents, both from your own and other year groups.


If you don’t fancy coming along to a meeting but you are able to help out with events, either on the day or in the run up, please do not hesitate to get in touch. It is impossible for us to run events without support from parents and families.


We really do understand that for some parents, keen to support us, giving up time to do this is not an option currently…here are additional ways you can help:

Shop using Amazon Smile.

AmazonSmile is website operated by Amazon with the same products and prices. The difference is when you shop using AmazonSmile, Amazon donate 0.5% to school!

The website is and you need to select the charity ‘Friends of Coten End’.

Thank you for your support and happy shopping!


Match FundingIf you work for a company that offers a Match Funding programme you may be able to help donate hundreds of pounds to school without any cost to you! Match Funding is when companies offer to ‘match’ funds raised, pound for pound up to a certain amount, by charitable organisations such as ‘Friends’. The government actively encourages businesses to donate to charity by giving them tax relief on their donations. Lots of companies will match any fundraising event that their employees are involved in. To view the list of companies already involved please click on ‘Matchfunding’ in the ‘useful documents’ below.


Your continued support is much appreciated.
