How can I help?
We really do understand that life is busy, and not everyone has lots of time and money to spare. However, there are lots of different ways you can contribute; if everyone could make even a small contribution, your school and children would benefit hugely – many hands make light work!
This really is free money! If you are employed, please find out whether your company offers match funding. Many firms - of all shapes and sizes, across all sectors - run a scheme whereby they will match funds raised by their employees for charity. This can literally add £000s to our fundraising, and all it takes is an email from you. We'll even draft the email for you if you like - you need only press send!
PTA Events sponsorship
We sell tickets for all of our events through an online system called PTA Events, so it gets high traffic throughout the year. If you run a local business and are looking for advertising opportunities, please consider advertising on our PTA Events site.
We run many events for children and families throughout the year, and we need volunteer support for all of these – we can’t put on events without you, so please do get involved where you can.
Easy Fundraising is a simple and FREE way to raise money for school from the comfort of your sofa. Simply register at www.easyfundraising.org.uk and choose ‘Friends of Parish School’ as your cause, or have a look for the EasyFundraising App available to download, making it even easier! Then when you come to do online shopping use the easyfundraising website to find your retailer (Amazon, John Lewis, Argos, etc) and when you make a purchase the retailer will make a contribution to the school. It really is free money!
Do you have a skill which could be useful to us and that you’d be happy to offer on an occasional basis? Anything from face painters to graphic designers to health and safety officers are always in demand! If you think you could help, please get in touch!
Have you had a flash of inspiration as to how we can raise extra money for the school? Do you have an idea for a social event? If so, please get in touch – all ideas are welcome!
We want to build a strong school community, so if there’s some way that we can help you, please let us know. If you’re a parent or carer at the school and have a local business that you’d like us to consider using – a food van, disco, printers – please get in touch.
