Christmas Fair - Raised £1991.98 -
WOW! What phenomenal amount, what a fantastic event. Thank you to all who baked, wrapped, sourced, collected, cooked, sold, spun, labelled, threw, caught, greeted, decorated, tidied, spent, ate, dipped, cut, poured, gifted, made, travelled from the North pole, bagged, tagged and everything in between. Please help us make it even better next year, for visitors and volunteer, by answering these questions while the experience is still fresh in your mind.
Autumn Fair - Raised £425.83 - Thank you Mrs McKennell, Mrs Nicholls and Mrs Clapperton for organising the event, sourcing the cafe and decorating the party. Thanks to Mrs Wolkowski, our treasurer for the money handling and tuck shop manning. Thanks to Mrs Stansfield, Connie and Maisie for coming back to help despite leaving school last year, to Sam, Heidi and Ayrton for helping at the infant disco, to Mrs Ali for the wonderful raffle prize, cakepops and cupcakes and Mrs Philbin for sourcing the tuck stock. Thanks to all the staff who helped at the parties and the big clear up. Lastly, a big thank you and well done to all the children and families who supported the event.
Jubilee BBQ - £1,212.98 raised at the BBQ.
Thank you to all those who supported the Spring Disco 2022, we raised an impressive £550.87 which will go towards our committment to raise enough money to subside the leavers' presents and school trips for this year. Last year we donated £1800 for the trips and after a quite period of fundraising due to Covid restrictions, we were fearful we couldn't help out this year, but your support and donations are giving us hope for 2023 so we'd like to give a huge thank you.
October 2021 - We raised £410 (£393.35 after JustGiving Fees) possibly more from Bank Transfer donations, just awaiting bank statement, with the Pumpkin Trail - thank you all those who volunteered and carved a pumpkin, to those who donated and everyone who came out and supported this fun event. Pictures have been uploaded into the facebook group so feel free to have a look there.
Covid-19 - Fundraising is difficult in the time of a pandemic, especially in a high-risk area, we have had many restrictions that stopped our usual efforts. However, this did not stop all our fun nor did it stop our commitment. We continued to look for alternative ways to raise money and have fun, it just looked a little different to previous years and unfortunately was not as fruitful. With the removal of restrictions, we are cautiously returning to events to try and catch up on our drained funds. If you have any worries about returning to public events, please let’s have a conversation about what we might be able to do to make this more comfortable and accessible.
Volunteering - If you have an idea that would benefit from PTA funds or an idea of how to raise funds, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have the committee vacancies as listed above, please let us know if you can fill them.
