Preston Primary (VC) School

How we raise money

Like most PTAs, the majority of our funds are raised through the events that we run.  In 2018-2019 we raised an impressive £8485.


Whilst our fundraisers vary from year to year, we do have some regular events in the calendar, including our ever popular Christmas Fayre and the 'Great Preston Bake Off', Easter disco and Campover.


Campover is held at the end of the summer term and is the last event in our calendar. It is always very well attended and loved by all of the children. Held on our school field, families have the choice of coming for the day or pitching a tent and staying the night!  Entertainment includes music, games, stalls, bbq, bar and refreshments as well as a late night movie for the children to finish off the evening.


In addition to the above annual events, bi-annually we also host the 'Preston May Ball'. This event is hugely successful both in terms of enjoyment and fundraising and provides an opportunity for the wider community to come together. It is always very well supported by members of the village, many of whom no longer have children at the school. It is a black tie event, held in a marquee on the school field and the evening includes a four course meal, live music, auction, raffle, photo-booth and bar.


Other events we have run include quiz nights, colour fun run, Christmas cards, sponsored walks to name but a few.
