We were delighted to receive an overwhelming response from volunteers and offers of support, a huge thank you to everyone who responded. Here are the details of how you can contribute to fundraising at QEGS.
Donations & School Fund
We welcome donations to our school fund which will enable us to provide those extras that students appreciate and also fill the gaps for items that public money we receive from the government can no longer stretch towards. This helps us to continue to provide the all-round educational experience that we prize so highly at QEGS.
£1 a Week Fund
Our ParentPay system has been updated and the opportunity to make a donation to the school is now in place. You could choose to donate £1 per week and enter a value of £52, a middle value of £26 or simply a value of your choice. https://www.parentpay.com/
We have also registered for Gift Aid. If you choose to Gift Aid your donation, we will receive an additional 25% at no additional cost to you. There is a form to complete which contains more details and can be found at this link: Gift Aid Multiple Donations Form. We have designed the form so that consent is given once for any donations you may make whilst your child is at school (it can of course be withdrawn at any time if you wish).
On Line Shopping
Did you know that whenever you shop online, your retailer could be making a donation to our school funds at no cost to you? We are now registered with easyfundraising.org.uk who have signed up over 3000 big name retailers willing to help schools raise money. Simply access your chosen retailer through the http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ website to trigger the donation. Every transaction will help!
We also benefit from a very proactive and supportive Parents’ Association. If you would like to know more about their activities or get involved please see their website page QEGS Parents'Association
If you have any questions about fundraising or volunteering at QEGS please contact Mrs Sandra James, Director of Finance & Resources.
Thank you once again, every contribution makes a difference and we are truly fortunate to have such a positive and supportive school community.
