Friends of Huntington School York

Easyfundraising and Easysearch

Whilst shopping online you can raise funds for us at no extra cost to yourself.
With over 3000 retailers you are sure to find a shop you normally use.

Easysearch is powered by Yahoo and Bing! Every search raises 0.5p which doesn’t sound like a lot, but think about how many searches you do as a family each week.

We have so far raised over £2,100 with just 80 people using it.  To get involved go to

Recycled Uniform

If you have any items of uniform from jumpers, ties or PE kit that you can donate to our recycled Uniform stocks please drop them off at school reception.  Any trainers, football boots and shin pads can also be donated and we give these straight to the PE department.
We wash and bag all items.  We then sell these on at a cost of no more than £3 for a jumper/PE fleece or PE games top.  The money from Recycled Uniform sales then goes into providing refreshments at parents’ evenings and events.

To order any recycled uniform please contact the Friends by email on: friendsofhuntingtonschool@gmail.com or via our Facebook Page – https://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfHuntingtonSchoolYork/ via messenger.

What have we funded so far?

Over the years, the Friends have raised over £21,000 in additional funds for the school. This money has gone to a variety of projects, including: author visits, books in school, training for Rolo and various other literacy-based projects. The focus now is on enhancing the schools offer for lunchtime clubs.

Would you like to get involved with our group?

We always welcome new committee members and regular helpers for those who are unable to commit to meetings.  We always need volunteers – whether you can provide back up administrative help or other support from home, can come in and help at any fundraising events, or be able to join us on the committee, everyone is valued.   The more people are able to offer a small amount of help, the more things we are able to do and the more money raised.

We are a friendly committee of past pupils, past parents, local community, staff and parents. We are especially keen to welcome any new parents.

As a committee we meet usually about once a term unless we are organising something specific, usually on an evening around 7pm in various locations and on various weekdays to allow everyone to get involved. We arrange meetings around those who can come, so this changes over time.

Regular Helpers are notified of all events, so they are kept up to date and can offer their help when they are available.  If you are willing to receive regular helper emails from us, please let us know by email or via the Facebook page. There is no minimum commitment, and ideally we prefer to rotate helpers so that there isn’t a burden on one or two people. Being able to come in for an hour or two a year and help serve refreshments is a huge benefit to us, so if you might be able to do this once a year or more, do let us know and we will send out details when help is needed.

FOHSY is your group as a parent, grandparent, carer of a child at our school or for any past pupils or anyone in our local community or who is interested in the school.  We always welcome your ideas for events, comments on what we do and what you would like to see less or more of.
