    • How the money raised is spent

      During the year 1st October 2015 to 30th September 2016, the Parents & Friends have contributed towards

      1.   A small Christmas Gift for the pupils in the primary department

      2.   KS4 trip to the Belgium Battlefields

      3.   Canopy for the Playground

       

      Over the last 15 years the Parents and Friends have raised around £96,000. Please take a look at some of the items that have been purchased for the school with this money over that time.

      We try on the whole to purchase items that will benefit the whole school although smaller purchases are made which benefit fewer pupils.  We do not support individual pupils

    • General Fundraising

       

      Giving Machine We are registered with Thegivingmachine.co.uk. If you shop online please consider registering with them and choosing St Anthony's as your beneficiary. We will then receive a commission every time you shop with the selected retailers with no additional cost to you. We have raised over £260 since we joined about 5 years ago although we only have about 15 people registered so if more people were to register this could be a very profitable and easy way to raise money. Flyer below with details.

       

      Second Hand School Uniform

      Do you have any uniform with the school logo on which your child has outgrown? We have begun to collect second hand uniform to sell at school events as it is so expensive to buy all new. Please email Sue Cecil if you are interested in purchasing 2nd hand uniform. All we ask is a donation to our funds.
