PFA fundraising

Westcott PFA is a registered charity and as such, between us we are able to raise funds in a variety of ways (in addition to all our fun events!)

For further details on any of these, please contact Monique Dickerson at PFA@westcott.buck.sch.uk

 

Match funding

Some of our employers might have the option for match fundraising on specific events.  If you have ideas for fundraising events or would be interested in taking part in anything then please contact the PFA.

 

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer and make a Gift Aid Declaration, then the PFA can reclaim basic rate tax (20%) from HMRC on contributions you make to the school.  This means a £10 donation is worth £12.50 to the school.

 

Give as you earn

If you find it difficult to come to the fundraising events then there is the option to set up a direct debit payment to ‘give as you earn’.

 

Collecting & Recycling

Clothing Recycling

last year we earned money for the school just by parents donating unwanted or outsized clothes.

It doesn’t necessarily need to be old uniforms; any clothes will do! It’s all done on weight not fabric. We have a collection container sited inside our school gates during school hours.  Simply package them up in a bin bag or suitably waterproofed bag and bring them along to the school when you next drop off or collect the kids.  All donations are then automatically credited back to the school after each container is full.  If you can’t organise the transport to bring them to the school, please contact one of our PFA members.

 

School – Uniform shop

Children outgrowing their school uniforms?

Simple go online at https://myclothing.com/westcott-church-of-england-school/13468.school, select our school and order all your embroidered school uniform needs and we will receive an automatic 5% cash donation back to our school on every purchase, as well as you earning club card points and free delivery returns.

 

Shopping

The PFA have links with many companies that provide good quality products for you to buy.  All of the companies offer the PFA a percentage of the price in return for your custom.  Some of the offers from the companies are available throughout the year and some are seasonal- the dates for these will be published on this page and in the ‘Events’ diary on this site.

Please use these offers as they really do make a difference to the funds the PFA raises which in turn benefits the children’s experience in school.  Happy Shopping!

Please note we have a secure post box on the school wall, next to the noticeboard in the front playground, where all order forms can be dropped along with payment.  This post box is regularly checked by members of the PFA.

 

Online Shopping

The Westcott PFA would like to share with you a new way you can support us – at no extra cost to you.  It’s called Give as you Live, a shopping and price comparison website that raises a free donation every time you shop online without costing you a penny extra.
You can shop through Give as you Live on your computer, tablet or mobile and a percentage of every pound you spend with over 3,600 leading stores like Amazon, John Lewis, Expedia, ASOS and more will be donated to Westcott Parents And Friends Association.

So why wait? Head to http://www.giveasyoulive.com/join/westcottparentsandfriends today and support us every time you fill your basket.

 

Chocoholics

At key times of the year  – Halloween, Christmas, Easter –  we offer parents the opportunity to order high quality chocolates and treats.  All orders will earn a 10% commission for the school.  Catalogues will be going out shortly for Easter 2015.

 

Northbrook Giftwrap & Cards

Every Christmas, look out for the Northbrook gift wrap brochure which is sent home with your children.  We will all be buying wrapping paper for Christmas and of course we need birthday paper all year round.  If everyone just bought one item through Northbrook, we could raise a significant amount of money.  Our school will receive 22% cashback on every item sold.  Beside the roll wrap there are many other great value products in the brochure.   These items are delivered to the school.

If you would prefer, you can order direct from Northbrook (all year round) at http://www.northbrookfundraising.co.uk and nominate Westcott CofE School to receive the 22% cashback.
