In August we started the campaign to raise £10,000 over the coming school year. So far we have raised just over £3000! This is made up of around £750 from fundraising events, £2000 in donations from individuals both through the crowdfunding and directly, and £250 which we will be able to claim in gift aid now that we have registered as a charity!
We have also raised funds through the new School Lottery and Easy Fundraising which will be transferred to us quarterly.
This is a fantastic amount to have raised in a single term. The PTA would like to thank everyone who has supported the campaign in any way so far; it seemed like an ambitious target but we’re well on the way and the school will be able to make good use of the funds raised already.
There are no more PTA events planned until after Christmas, but there are still tea towels to buy, and you can support the school by doing your shopping via Easy Fundraising.
The next PTA meeting is the AGM on 22nd January. We will be electing the committee, reviewing the successes of the previous year and planning for the year ahead. Please come if you can!
