A massive thank you to all the lovely local people and businesses that have supported our raffle by donating these lush prizes.
And finally, thanks to all of YOU. Thank you for supporting all our events, the virtual Grotto, the storytelling with Father Christmas and the fun quiz we enjoyed tonight (well done winners Ritson and Wood family!) We are so grateful for all the extra donations that go a long way to making up for the lack of our usual Christmas Fayre fundraiser. Look out for updates here on how much we have raised and what exciting projects we hope to spend it on.
This Saturday is the launch of the Menston Christmas window trail. We have had over 63 households sign up and we cannot wait to see your creativity! If you would like to get your hands on a map then you need to send an email to
You will be sent the virtual map and a link to click to donate to the Friends of Menston Primary School to ‘pay’ for your map.
Even if you don’t want to take part, you can still DONATE HERE
Thank you to all our business sponsors as well, see below.
The FoMPS Christmas Raffle has launched. Raffle tickets have been sent home with every child. Please support Menston Primary School and ask friends and family if they would also like to get involved. If you require more tickets, they are also available in Pickards Deli and in the Menston Co-op (our thanks to Michelle and Dan for their help in this regard.)
Prizes are still rolling in but so far include:
Burberry gloves, Luxury Hampers, Facial at Coty & Madison, Wonder Woman swimming accessory collection, Harry Potter Backpack, Love Brownies, Children’s haircuts at Croft Park hair salon, Moo & Blossom Clothing voucher, unique Lego clock by Craig Jenkins, Dogwalking session, Llama walking experience voucher, and Cath Kidston toiletries…
Join us for a FUN and FESTIVE family quiz night after you finish the Light-Up Menston Christmas doorstep singing. How do you fancy your chances on rounds such as Cheesy jokes, Disney movie slogans, 50/50 dates, and a picture round of well-known characters…
Let’s come together as families and exercise our general knowledge this christmas!
When? Saturday 12th December at 7pm
Where? On zoom (details sent when you have booked your tickets)

One of our favourite things to do at Christmas time is to take our children to see Father Christmas in his local grotto and listen to all the delightful things they say as they draw in close and whisper their wishes for christmas morning. Well, Covid.
So this year, FoMPS has your back. We have arranged with Father Christmas himself to hold an exclusive virtual grotto. You can book a time slot on Sunday 6th December and your child can have an arguably more special experience than usual! Slots are limited in number – December is his busiest month – so book early to avoid disappointment. All times will be between 1-3.30pm and your child will have an undisturbed 3 minutes to share their wishes and establish whether they are on the naughty or nice list.
