Meet The BSFA Team

We are primarily run by a group of three parents and two Bleasby school staff members who are trustees but also have ‘friends’ who are parents, grandparents and carers who help the charity on a more ad-hoc basis. We are a really friendly team who enjoy planning events that keep our children, school and community happy, entertained and engaged, whilst at the same time raising much required funds for Bleasby school.
