All Souls’ PTA (Parents and Teachers Association) are here to help raise vital funds for our children’s school.
Most schools have a PTA. Not only is it a good way of increasing communication between parents and teachers, but it also helps to provide additional financial support by way of fundraising. In recent years money raised by our PTA (and that means you!) has funded Orienteering equipment, new curtains for the school hall and various other resources. We try to do most of our fundraising in a way that means you get something back: Christmas cards, coffee mornings, nights out etc. We want to put the fun into fundraising so that parents, staff and most importantly the children can enjoy themselves in the process.
We are always looking for new ideas, so if you have any suggestions, contacts or hidden talents that you would like to share with us, please feel free to do so!
All parents are automatically members of the PTA, so you are all invited to join us at one of our meetings! Alternatively, you can support us with ideas or by getting involved at one of our fundraising events.
We look forward to seeing you!
I don’t have any spare time or any spare money, can I still help?
Absolutely! We are always grateful for support!
- Use the following link for all types of shopping, including online grocery & holidays and the PTA will earn cash back at no extra cost to you. http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ All Souls Catholic Primary School.
- Collect the Active Kids Vouchers from Sainsbury’s and donate them to school.
- Use our Textile Recycling Bin, the big blue one in the corner of the car park! http://www.uktextilerecycling.co.uk/ School receives commission per tonne for all the clothes, shoes and bedding etc. donated. Depending on their condition the textiles are either reused or recycled, so even the most worn and torn items can be of use! And it helps you get rid of clutter!
- Recycle your old batteries. A box is in the main reception area.
- Do you have any out grown uniform in good condition? This can be donated back to school for other children to use.
- Any old toys, books, dvds in good condition? Let school have a sort through before giving them to the charity shop!
- Use Scholastic website when buying books http://www.scholastic.co.uk/ Spend £10 or more with us and we’ll give 20% of your order value back to your school in Scholastic Rewards to spend on books and resources.
- Do you or anyone you know have a business which would be prepared to donate raffle or auction prizes in exchange for a mention in our newsletter? Do you have a hidden or not so hidden talent we could benefit from? Can you make things? Bake things? Create things? Do you have any ideas you’d like to share?
