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!
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!
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! We've raised £74.18 this way so far this year.
If you work for a large or medium-sized employer, please find out whether your company offers match funding – a scheme through which they match any funds that you raise for charity.
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.
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!
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.
We hold two cake sales throughout the year – Macmillan Coffee Morning in September and the Valentine’s Cake Sale in February. Please bake or buy a cake to donate, and don’t forget to purchase other goodies on the day!
