Middlezoy and Othery PTA is run by a small number of volunteer parents to raise monies for the school to spend on resources, materials, school trips and specialist educational activities.
There is no formal ‘membership’ or commitment required and all parents, carers, family and staff are very welcome to attend and contribute to meetings and fundraising events. We’re always looking for new and fresh inspiration so please do get involved!
Monies spent are usually allocated on request from teaching staff but we have also funded leavers’ presents and hoodies for the Year 6 pupils at the end of their primary school journey.
Examples of previous fundraising events include Christmas Fayre, Jumble sale, Sponsored walk, cake sales, school discos and coin collecting at carnivals.
Ongoing income is generated from a number of ways:
Bags of Help
Bags of Help collection banks that are situated at both school sites. All donations must be clean and bagged please.
YES: All adults and childrens’ clothing, paired shoes, belts, handbags, accessories, hats, scarves, gloves etc, costume jewellery, DVDS & CDS, unopened toiletries, bedding, mobile phones.
NO: Duvets, pillows, curtains, ripped or stained items and scrap material.
Monthly Lottery Draw
For just £5 for the year, you can enter our monthly draw with cash prizes of £15, £10 and £5. In the months of April, July and December, the first prize is raised to £30! Participants are allocated a numbered ball (the same number for the year) and balls are drawn from a bag. This is usually done during a family assembly at either school site.
Easyfundraising turns your everyday online shopping into FREE donations when you use easyfundraising to shop with over 3,300 retailers such as Amazon, eBay, John Lewis, Argos, NEXT and Booking.com.
Our retailers then make a small donation to say ‘thank you’ and easyfundraising gives those free funds to the cause. Plus, once you’ve signed up and raised £5 in donations, easyfundraising will give us an extra £5 donation.
There’s no catch or hidden charges and Middlezoy and Othery Schools will be really grateful for your donations. Click on the link below to get started!
