LVS Ascot PTFA - Fundraising
Fundraising Successes in 2022-23
We are delighted to announce we had a fantastic year 2022-2023 raising a total of £19,735.
Key highlights were the Spring Ball which raised over £7000, Second Hand Uniform £2000 and our Spring Fair and Spooks and Sparkles dress up days raising in excess of £1000 each.
Our social highlights were the annual Spring Ball for parents and staff held at The Castle Hotel in Windsor and the Junior School Disco with a professional DJ held in the IJS Hall.
We secured sponsorship for our Junior School Christmas presents which were delivered by Santa and then at Easter we were gifted Easter Eggs for an Easter Egg Hunt for the junior school.
Building a community and fundrasing for the school are our core charitable aims. In 2022- 2023 we were able to fund £11,000 on school equipment. We funded £2200 on several Junior School items, including an Early Years classroom extension, Technical Lego for STEM & Coding, Playground equipment and a new Food tech kitchen.
£6000 funding has gone towards an iSandBOX – a revolutionary and exciting Intereactive augmented reality Sandbox where users can develop their knowledge and senses through music, texture and sound. iSandBOX can be used to reproduce natural environments where kids can manipulate landscapes, change sea levels, and observe different natural phenomena, such as volcanoes or ice ages. https://isandbox.co.uk/ This revolutionary Sandbox is available for use by both schools.
£900 funded a new Pool Table in the Sixth Form centre and has been well used since the day it arrived! D&T also benefitted from the funding and have been able to purchase a new rotary tool and Cri-Cut Maker, further extending the activites that the D&T are able to offer pupils in their lessons.
None of this would be possible without the volunteers planning and running the events and our parent and staff community for supporting the PTFA with donations, attendance and support. A huge thank you to everyone for making 2022-2023 a memorable year!
Charity Match Funding
Match funding is a simple way of maximising the fundraising efforts of our individual PTFA volunteers. Last year our Charity Match Funding raised over £4000. This increased our fundraising efforts by 25% – it is hugely beneficial to the PTFA for our parents to apply for match funding if their employer offers it. Please contact us to find out how we can support you through the process.
We are keen to work in partnership with businesses that can support the LVS Ascot PTFA to achieve its charitable aims. Please contact us if your company would like to support with event or project sponsorship.
