The Beaver Road Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a charity dedicated to raising extra funds to further improve our school and to bring our community together. We organise various events a year including a Spooky Party, the Christmas Fair, a Family Fun Day and many other smaller events throughout the school year.
2016/17 Fundraising Target:
Our current fundraising target for the 2017/18 school year is £10,000
Last year we managed to raise just over £9,000. This will go towards the lease of a mini bus for the school. The remaining amount has been put in a pot to upgrade the outside areas of the school. This is a big project which will require much money, so will be done over time, and will be an ongoing project for the PTA to raise funds for.
If you shop online, you can make a free cash donation with every purchase if you join www.TheGivingMachine.co.uk. It’s really simple, you enter your favourite shops via TheGivingMachine and a percentage of your shopping bill is converted into a cash donation for the school, at no extra cost to you. With over 1,500 stores participating including Amazon, John Lewis and Tesco taking part, you can really help make a difference.
We would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to everyone who is using TheGivingMachine to shop online. Together, we can raise money from our usual internet shopping and it doesn’t cost anyone a penny! .
We also have a fundraising page on Golden Giving http://www.goldengiving.com/wall/beaver-road-pta where you can make a donation, check on our fundraising progress, see future events and even buy tickets to our events (only events which are not restricted to Beaver Rd pupils and families).
All help is very welcome - Whether you can help out for just an hour at one of our events or at every event, it doesn't matter. We always need volunteers - no task is too small!
Perhaps you have an idea for an event that you'd like to organise yourself to help raise funds. If so, please get in touch!
