Hello from the PTA!!
We're working harder than ever this year to raise the £10K funds for St. Matthews upgraded IT system.
Fund-raising is done in all sorts of ways including fun / active social events: Golf Day, Pamper Evening, Ice Cream Friday, Christmas Stalls, Quiz with a Twist, Easter Egg Bingo & of course our biggest fundraiser of the year our Walking Day/Summer Fair. The funds are used in lots of different ways from ongoing annual commitments to Music, Singing, KS2 Pantomime, YrR BBQ and Yr 6 hoodies to major capital projects such as the current IT upgrade.
Please come along to any of our PTA Events, everything raised by the PTA goes back to school to help the children.
This is such an easy way to raise funds & doesn't cost you anything. Every little helps and you will be surprised how much those small sums significantly increase.

Some UK companies run a Match Funding Scheme, it is a simple way of maximising the fund raising efforts we do.
Please check with your Employer to see if they have a scheme in place, we can provide any necessary information they may need - our Registered Charity number is 105823.
Please let us know by emailing the PTA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
