Winter Fair

Saturday 8th December 2018, 1.00pm-4.00pm

This is one of the PTA’s largest events, and our biggest fundraiser. There will be lots of stalls, games, VR headsets, henna tattoos and one of the best Santa’s Grottos in Brighton! You can read more on our facebook event page.

We do need more donations of bric-a-brac, books, jam jars (filled with sweets, toys, stickers etc) and empty screw-top wine bottles (with the lid).  Please leave any donations in the school office.

Volunteers needed

If you can help make the fair happen by giving an hour of your time, we particularly need volunteers in the following areas:

Staffing the games room

Helping in the pamper room

Break-down / clear-up after the fair

Thank you for your help!

Ways to help fundraise for the school

Through Charitable Giving

Did you know that the PTA is a registered charity?
Individuals, sole-traders and partners who make a donation to charity can claim tax relief. Limited companies who make a donation can reduce the amount of corporation tax they pay by the same amount. Full details of these schemes can be found on the HMRC website at www.gov.uk.

If you’re thinking of taking advantage of one of these schemes why not think of us? The money we raise is donated to the school for projects large and small that will benefit our children.
