How we raise money
Like most PTAs, the majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run. In 2014/2015 we raised an impressive £8,800. Some of our most popular events are:
Christmas Fayre – in the past couple of years this event has been held at Hitchin Church Hall and includes numerous stalls, e.g., toy stall, tombola, Christmas presents, cake stall, refreshments, face painting, tattoos and various games.
Preston May Ball - a hugely successful event (held bi-annually) both in terms of enjoyment and fundraising. A black tie event, held in a marquee on the school field, which includes a four course meal, live music, auction, raffle, photographer and bar.
Campover - a summer event held on the school field. Families have the choice of coming for the day or pitching a tent and staying the night! Entertainment includes a live band, fish and chip van, games, stalls, bar and refreshments as well as a late night movie for the children to finish off the evening.
Termly Cake Sales - each term a class takes a turn to bake scrumptious cakes and sell them to the school.
Christmas Cards - the children are asked to design a Christmas card, which is then sent off to be printed onto cards. Packs of these and other merchandise can then be bought by parents/guardians
