PTA KEY NEWS
Please do continue to support our fundraising efforts:
- Every Saturday there is a new draw for Your School Lottery, with a guaranteed Wood End Winner, plus a chance at the jackpot and, until 20th February, a "Robot Bundle"!! Buy your tickets now. More details here: www.woodend.herts.sch.uk/home-1/about/school-lottery
- If you are shopping online, please use the Easyfundrasing App or website to click through to your chosen shop. Once you have set Wood End School PTA as your cause, at no cost to you, a commission can be paid to the PTA every time you shop! To date, over £14,600 has been raised for the school since joining this initiative, simply by shopping.
- For Amazon shoppers, do switch to AmazonSmile (available on the App as well as the website) and set your charity to Wood End School Parent Teacher Association. Then every time you buy anything eligible you will be raising money to help the school.
- Via Virgin Money Giving & ZIFFIT, search for our charity Wood End School Parent Teacher Association and you can donate the proceeds from any Books, Games, CDs and DVDs traded in.
As we’re preparing (hopefully) to return to school soon, don’t forget you can also raise commission when ensuring everything your child takes to school is labelled:
- Stamptasatic.co.uk provides a great alternative to sewing / sticking labels into uniforms – simply stamp the name instead! They sell a huge range of different stamps, including a whole range of home-schooling inspired stamps, such as gold stars, thumbs up and smiley green ticks! Pop our PTA code (AL53EF) in the "Gift Card, PTA Code or Discount Code" box as you check out to earn commission.
- Easy2name sell fantastic labels with stick, iron, or sew options. They also have personalised bags, ideal for shoes or PE kit. Select “WOOD END PTA” from the list before you check out to ensure we earn commission.
- And finally; save your old ink cartridges – we’re all getting through them like nobody’s business! Once we’re back at school there will be a cartridge recycling point outside the main door to the school. Double win: we earn money, and it prevents the cartridge going to landfill.
As always, a big thank you for your support.
Now more than ever, we need new volunteers! It’s a great time to get involved when we are looking for new and innovative ideas for fundraising activities when we don’t know when we will be able to resume our regular events. Do please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you!
