We are the Friends of Ash Lea School and our main aim is to to help promote friendship opportunities and activities for the pupils of Ash Lea Special School and their parents. We also fund equipment where needed in classes, donate towards the school summer fun week and help school fund other events in the school calendar.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not been able to run many of our activities and events but we are still actively helping the children by funding equipment for classes.

Donations are always welcome and are put to good use supporting our special children either within school or outside.
