PFSA & Fundraising
Your School Lottery – a weekly draw. Tickets for the lottery cost £1 per week. There is a guaranteed cash winner for our school every week and the chance to win the £25,000 jackpot. We raise money through this as we take a percentage of the weekly donations. If you would like sign up please go to https://www.yourschoollottery.co.uk/ and search for our school.
Easy Fundraising – an easy way to donate while you’re doing your online shopping. It turns your everyday online shopping into free donations for your favourite cause, just start your online shopping first at easyfundraising then shop as normal. The retailers will then make a small donation to say “thank you”. There are 4,368 retailers to choose from and this method is used by many charities, school, clubs and community groups across the UK. Go to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ for further details on how to nominate our school.
Amazon Smile – similar to Easy Fundraising, Amazon make a small donation every time you choose to shop through Amazon Smile. You can do this through the usual Amazon site or here.
