Sign up to Easy Fundraising
Every time you spend money online through one of their partners (Sainsbury’s, Tesco, John Lewis, Booking.com, M&S etc.) they donate a small amount to your chosen charity. It’s basically FREE MONEY! If you normally shop in Sainsbury’s or Tesco for your weekly food, why not consider going online to order? You get your groceries delivered to your door and could raise up to 50p per order – that’s a whopping £26 per year! Consider if only half of our families did this and that would amount to £7,800 per year. If every family committed to it, we’d raise £15,600 for FREE!

How you can help…
We would love you to be involved in your PTFA in any way you can and know that support comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Here are just a few ideas of what you can do, right now, to activate your membership:
How we support Saint Gregory’s…
Projects that the PTFA have supported in the past include:
- Contribution to the construction of the sixth form, Gateway Building
- The purchase of five indoor table tennis tables
- Prize-giving rewards for students
- Contribution towards the purchase of all-weather table tennis tables
In 2021, the PTFA committee, in consultation with students, staff and senior leaders have committed to supporting:
- Sponsored the End of Year Rewards Day
- A donation to the Year 11 and Year 13 Leavers’ Committees
- Resources for Lego Computer Club
- Specialist resources for the SEND faculty and Elsa Suite
- Specialist resources for the Pastoral Centre
- Video cameras and iPads for the PE department
- Donation towards the cost of master planning
All of these donations contribute enormously to supporting the teaching and learning at St Gregory’s, enriching the curriculum and our children’s great experiences of school and we want to have the funds to create more and more of them!
Join in any of our PTFA meetings
We hold our meetings once a term, generally on a Tuesday evening, from 6-7pm to discuss forthcoming events at the school and how we can support, share ideas for fundraising or simply to welcome new parents/carers! Everyone is welcome, all we ask is that you let us know if you intend to join us so that we can make sure we have enough cups, saucers or wine glasses to go around!
Email us at email@example.com if you can help!
Donate your time
We are always on the look-out for willing volunteers or a helping pair of hands to help out at fundraising events. It’s not all tea, coffee, cake and wine! Sometimes it’s about sharing your journey with new families, welcoming prospective parents and carers to our community or simply offering your skills as a professional so that we and the school can benefit from your knowledge and expertise. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or just to let us know you’re interested!
Donate your money
We understand that, for some parents and carers, they would rather give a one-off donation or monthly donation to the PTFA. We are working towards a new scheme to facilitate donations easily and effectively, also allowing us to claim Gift Aid on your donations and we hope this will be launched soon. If you’re interested in supporting through a regular donation, please get in touch via email email@example.com.
We’re keen to develop mutually beneficial partnerships with local businesses and would love to hear from you if you own a business or if you work for a company that provides support to local charities. This could be in the form of:
TIME – some companies offer charitable schemes donating their employees for projects;
FINANCIAL – some companies will donate for specific projects to enhance school communities or facilities;
GOODS & SERVICES – many businesses will donate to raffles and auctions helping us to raise funds through events.
If you are a business, or you know of a business that may help, please get in touch. We would love to fill this newsletter with the St Gregory’s PTFA official sponsors’ logos and thank them publicly for their support of our school.
