Parents’ Association fund raising

The most important way that the Parents’ Association raises money is via the 50/50 club. Participants pay £5 per month and every month one winner is randomly drawn. Half the contributed money goes to the winner and the other half goes to the Parents’ Association. If you would like to take part, please download the 50/50 club flyer.

  • £123 from a raffle and cake sale at the Youth Philanthropy evening
