Rags2Riches4Schools

Thank you for your amazing donations of 420kg of clothes - raising a wonderful £168 for the school. A fantastic effort from all the community and great to see that these donations will be reused.

Our small PTA Committee needs more help if we are to rise to the challenge and put on a wide programme of events to bring the community together to have fun and raise much needed funds for the school.

If you'd like to help in anyway please do get in touch, contactpta@wanboroughprimary.org.

It's great to be back (nearly) and be able to think about fun filled activities to entertain our children, bring parents and the wider community together and FUNdraise to help support the school.

Have you missed us? ..

We hope that if restrictions permit and it is safe to do so, our first big event back may be a whole school summer party in July.

In the meantime, here's an update on what's been happening over the last year and ways you can continue to help.

Thank you Intel

This month we received a massive boost from Intel with a donation of £6,565. This was provided for four parent employees who juggled home schooling and working during lockdown. On behalf of the PTA a massive thank you.

Does your employer offer a matched funding or donation scheme? If yes, we'd love to hear from you.

Funding requests

We've continued to help the school with a range of donations:
  • £4000 for 20 laptops
  • £4969 online learning license
  • £175 online Panto
  • £110 class xmas presents

Clothes recycling donations

After collecting an amazing 1.12 tonnes of clothes (a new record for one school) back in November, raising £449 in the process, we've arranged another collection with rags2riches for 30th June.

A great opportunity to have a clear out and donate all those good quality clothes the kids have outgrown over lockdown, whilst helping to recycle and raise money in the process. For more info see the attached poster.

Second-hand uniform sales

Despite all the restrictions we've still offered access to the second-hand uniform and thanks to your fabulous support raised £305.

Hopefully, if the school can run sports day this year and parents are able to attend we'll be able to run a second-hand uniform stall. Watch this space for more news.
