Castell Alun Friends’ Association


The Committee

CAFA became a registered charity in February 2016 and our committee is currently made up of a few parents and staff. If you’d like to take a more active role in CAFA by joining the committee you’ll be really welcome.

We usually meet on the third Tuesday of each month during term time at 6.15pm and we make sure meetings end within an hour. If you’re interested in finding out more, come along to a meeting or email us at for more information. Even if you can’t join us at the meetings we’re always trying to find (time efficient!) ways to come up with events and activities that people will enjoy so if you’ve any suggestions, please do let us know.

Minibus Fundraising – £5000

Having only one minibus is restricting the number of external events students can get to so we’re trying to raise enough to get another one as soon as possible.

Many thanks to everyone who came along to the fashion show at the end of June – we raised £1500 from the event which has now taken the total up to £5000.

We’ve started fundraising by collecting old British or foreign coins and notes, even obsolete currency.

Once all the currency has been collected we send it to who’ll exchange it into cash we can use.

The bucket will be in school all year so please keep the coins coming!

Thanks to everyone who supported this year’s lottery. We’re deciding whether to continue it as the number of people who joined this year was quite low. We’ll post an update at the start of next term.

We’ve now had several donations through our fundraising page – thank you so much. If you’d like to make a contribution towards our minibus appeal please click on this link and it will take you there.

If you prefer to make a donation by cheque, please make it payable to “Castell Alun Friends’ Association” and mark the envelope for CAFA’s attention. If you’re making the donation as an individual rather than as a company, and would like to Gift Aid your donation, you’ll find the form here.

Shop with over 3,100 retailers and easyfundraising will give a donation to the school every time you make a purchase. Retailers include eBay, Amazon, John Lewis, B&Q, and loads more. It won’t cost you anything.


Signing up to support Castell Alun Friends’ Association is really easy – just follow this link, fill in your email address, set a password and your account is set up. No other information is needed. You can then go via easyfundraising to do your shopping and we’ll get a donation every time.

There is no catch or hidden cost; it’s just a really easy way to raise extra money for the school.
