The FrOGS (Friends of George Spencer) organize community events to raise money for projects at George Spencer Academy. The group was founded in 2007. Originally, it was quite a small group with BIG AMBITIONS and gave the school just under £2500 in the first year. Now, the group have donated over £43,000 for project large and small. Currently, we have 12 active members with children attending/attended George Spencer, the school representative Mr. Richard Turner, and ably supported by the school caretakers. All committee members are volunteers.
The group meet once a month. Over the year, we have run a number of events including Christmas Fayre, Fireworks Extravaganza (jointly with the fire-fighters fromStapleford), Back to School (for GSA 50th Anniversary), Pamper Night, Quiz Night, Wine Tasting, Strictly George Spencer and other events.
You can find details of all our upcoming events on our Facebook page.
