Fundraising April 2017 - April 2018 . . . (running total . . .)
£ 1268.71 Jun 2017 Summer Fair
£ 50.00 Apr 2017 donation towards the Snake Bed
£ 1318.71 TOTAL so far as 22.06.17
£ 57.10: Feb - Apr 2017 Second Hand Uniform Sales
£ 173.89: Jan 2017 Pig Race meant to be more of a social though . . . fun evening but if repeated in 1-2 yrs perhaps do it in March or October, and reconsider the times . . . John the Pig Man can't come before 7.30pm, so should it be for adults and older children only?. . . Not sure whether or not more school families would be interested, or do it as a fund raiser open to anyone/everyone but it was fun . . . see photos and video at https://www.facebook.com/pilsleycofepta/

Thank you to everyone who helps/supports/contributes.
How can you help?
We’d like everyone to contribute something but we know people are busy and have many calls on their time and money so here are some ideas of how you can help:
Donation direct to school
Some parents have told us that whilst they want to support us, they have no time and would like to make a donation to our funds instead. If you would like to do this we would be delighted to receive donations. We can accept cheques made payable to 'Friends of Pilsley School'. Please hand them to a committee member, or Mrs Branson in the school office.
In 2015/6 we spent a lot of time trying to register for Gift Aid. We discovered that we needed to become a Registered Charity and have two named individuals on the committee willing to be responsible for the Gift Aid part and in particular, one of the would have to do a tax return for the PTA. We do not have these skills currently on the committee, and are concerned that every 2 years or so, it would have to be other named people doing this, so ultimately Git Aid remains elusive unless anyone reading this has experience setting up Gift Aid and would like to help us! Please get in touch!
