Introduction to The PTA
All Parents, Guardians & Staff are members of the PTA, and are welcome to any committee meetings.
We want to thank everyone for their support for the May Day Fayre and Scarecrow Trail. Without the community backing and help to run stalls, these events wouldn't be able to take place.
We appreciate it takes time out of people's day but this year we had the added incentive of a donation to the PTA for help. The weather was kind to us for that weekend and the May Fayre was busy with people, as was the school where people stopped for refreshments whilst on the Scarecrow Trail.
We will keep you updated on where our donation money will be spent.
Bag2School was a brilliant fundraiser for us in May. Not only did it raise money, but hopefully it helped everyone doing some spring cleaning.
We had a huge pile in front of the school and raised £172
We held our Easter Bake Sale and Egg Decorating Competition on the last day of term which was a great success. There were some amazing eggs for Rev Bill to judge, with prizes being given out for the winners and runners-up in the following categories; pre-school, KS1, KS2 and adult. We want to thank Richard James in Wroughton who provided the donation for our chocolate prizes. We also want to thank everyone that took part and for the donation of all the cakes. Having counted all the pennies, we can confirm that we raised £134
from the egg competition and £218.80
from the bake sale.
School Fete - Saturday 29th June
We are fast approaching our biggest event of the year and still welcome any donations such as alcohol for the 'Barrow of Booze', Teddies for Adopt a Teddy, or if you are a business and want to donate a raffle prize or sponsor an event, please contact us using the links on this page.
Charitable Donations Co-Ordination
We are still seeking volunteers to explore how we can use Gift Aid and corporate donation programmes to boost fund-raising efforts. The school has a large list of additional funding requirements, which the PTA hope to be able to financially support. However, our small PTA Committee needs help to fully explore the options. If you able to give up some time to help explore these different fund-raising avenues, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

We continue to plug the Easyfundraising service as it is such a quick and simple way to raise money. Please register at www.easyfundraising.org.uk/invite/UXYA85
. Once registered, every time you shop online at any of the thousands of retailers available, the PTA receive a donation. You can also download an app so you can shop on the move.
Please remember to follow us on our new Facebook page ‘Wanborough Primary PTA’. We regularly post new events or updates on fundraising activities and so if you can’t wait until the next school newsletter to see what we have been up to, please visit us here.
We would like to thank everyone at the school for your continued support over the past year and we hope next year will bring many more exciting fundraising activities to help make a difference to all our children.
