Striving for Excellence in a happy,secure and Christian environment

PFTA Newsletter

Bag 2 School are a free fundraising scheme, established in 1999, for anyone wanting to raise funds using a resource EVERYONE has got in their wardrobe – unwanted clothes. We work in partnership with Schools, Businesses, Community Groups, Local Councils and Charities to help them raise funds from your donations. We operate throughout the UK; collecting and selling your unwanted textiles to importers and wholesalers in many countries of Eastern and Western Europe, Africa and Asia. All to benefit the Circular Economy.

 

How does it work? We will arrange a mutually agreed date for our van to arrive at your school or organisation to collect the bags. Our driver will load the bags directly onto the van.

 

The collection is then weighed and we send you a cheque. In some areas you will receive the cheque on the collection day. Simple!

 

B2S has paid over £36 Million to schools and other organisations SO FAR!

 

COLLECTION DATE OF 30th NOVEMBER 2020

 

The PFTA will be limited this year in how much we can fund because we have been and continue to have our usual events effected by COVID-19 restrictions. We ask that parents continue to support the small events that we will be putting on. If anyone has any fundraising ideas we would be grateful for them, please contact us on andovercofepfta@gmail.com

 

Some of the smaller fundraisers we will be starting over the next few weeks will include:

 

Personalised Tote Bags

Christmas Calendars

Sweet Cones

Bags2School

Dress Down Days

PFTA Plea to Parents
 
Did you know that helping with the PFTA and helping raise invaluable funds for your child's school is not all about meetings?
 
In the past year, the PFTA have raised over £4,000, helping to contribute towards laptops, school trips, even the gardening club! These additional funds help ALL of our children and enrich their school experience with items that may not have been available without these additional monies.
 
In order to continue raising these funds for the school we urgently need more members, however this need not be as onerous as it sounds......
 
Lets face it, life is hectic! Juggling children, work, running the house, the list goes on..... However all of our members donate as much or little time as they are able.
 
· Always do school pick up and arrive at 3pm? You could help sell event tickets in the playground.
· Have an hour spare in the evening every now and then? You could name envelopes and send out raffle tickets or staple bingo tickets together.
· Enjoy surfing the internet? You could search for the best prices for items that we need.
 
These are examples of small jobs that require an occasional amount of time but are absolutely essential to the success of an event.
 
As children leave in Year 6 our numbers dwindle naturally and we constantly need new members to ensure that we are able to continue organising and hosting events that benefit the school and all children.
 
We are looking to hold a small social event where we hope to be able to welcome new members. If you would like to attend, please can you make us aware of your interest as we would love to see you there.

The school is fortunate to have a very active and supportive PFTA.

 

We hope that you find the information useful. What does your Parents Friends & Teachers Association (PFTA) do?

It meets at least once a term, either for social or fund raising events (usually both)

Why does PFTA exist?

To:

  • raise money for your school.
     
  • organise social events.
     
  • provide links between parents, teachers and children and the local community.
     

We are always looking for more parents to become involved, new events will be posted here!
