Alongside these events, we are keen to offer our children the very best opportunities that we can. To allow us to reach our high aspirations, we use various fundraising opportunities in addition to having an extremely hard-working and supportive PTA that regularly fund school projects.
Easyfundraising is an entirely free service that allows people to shop directly at their favourite online store via the links on the easyfundraising.org.uk website and raise a donation for our school once a purchase is made. Donations can be up to 15% of the value of your purchase, depending on the retailer and the item purchased. There are thousands of stores that are already participating with leading high street brands such as Amazon, WHSmith, John Lewis and more, making it one of the most effortless fundraising ideas for schools. Please consider registering with this site as every little helps.
Another great way of supporting the school and having the chance to have a cash win is by registering with www.yourschoollottery.co.uk and searching for Deanshanger. Each ticket is £1 and every penny of profit goes directly back to the PTA to fund extra items for your children that maybe wouldn’t otherwise be possible. There is one local prize which is guaranteed to be won by someone participating in the Deanshanger specific lottery, and a further national prize of £25,000 to someone in any one of the school lotteries across the country. Anyone can enter, so please make friends and family aware. The more people that join, the bigger the prize and the more profit we make for the school.
