How we raise money
Like most PTAs, the majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run. Some of our most popular events are the summer and Christmas fairs and Breakfast with Santa. We also run a sponsored event and an Easter event. At Christmas we work with the children and teachers to produce tea towels and Christmas cards using the children’s own artwork, which make excellent presents for friends and family. Last year we ran a Mother’s Day sale and a Father’s Day sale event where the children could buy a small gift and have it wrapped for that special person in their life. So you can see there is always something going on and it is truly rewarding to see the children having fun at the events or enjoying using a piece of new equipment that the PTA has donated.
Charity Matched Giving scheme
The current Committee have started to look into the Charity Matched Giving scheme. This is where companies or businesses pledge to donate an amount of money which relates to the amount that an employee fundraises for our PTA. If you think your employer has a matched giving scheme already in operation, or you would like to take on or assist in setting up a scheme for us, please talk to one of the PTA committee, or drop us an email.
