Ways to Fundraise - How you can help

Buy your nametags from MyNametags

Need name tags for clothes or lunchboxes? Order them at https://www.mynametags.com/  Add the school id 28939 at the checkout and for every order, My Nametags will contribute 24% to our school PTA.

 

Fundraise while you shop

If you shop online, one way you can support the PTA is to sign up to Easyfundraising and allocate HolyTrinityLowerBeeding as your chosen charity. You can add the ‘extension’ to your web browser or download the App and then shop as normal. Easyfundraising retailers will then make a donation to the PTA to say, “thank you”.  This year, we raised £257 through Easyfundraising.

Our School Wish Tree

Following requests and conversations with a number of parents, the PTA set up a wish tree. Staff leave suggestions of items (typically small things or thing not covered by traditional budgets) and parents can buy these items from an Amazon Wish List. There is no expectation for any families to feel obliged to take part. Below is the link to our wishlist:

Recycle your Printer Cartridges

Did you know that you can help us raise funds simply by recycling your printer cartridges? We have a box in school reception where you can drop off your old ink cartridges. For each ink cartridge recycled via the programme we will receive up to £2 donation. NB: the scheme doesn’t accept laser and toner cartridges.

 

 

Who are the PTA?

The Parent Teacher Association is a registered charity whose only goal is to raise money for our school to fund items, events and experiences not covered by the school's normal council funding and designed to make your childrens’ time at Holy Trinity that little bit more special. 

We are a mix of parents from across the year groups and teachers. We spend our time coming up with fundraising ideas for raising money for everything from new reading books to building a new outdoor area.

Want to get involved?

We would love new members for our team! You can either join the committee and help plan activities and events (we meet about twice a term). Or if you can’t spare much time, we also welcome any parents to help at the events that we run, if you would like to help please contact Nicky Peet via Classlist or speak to Mrs Cornfield in the School Office.
