Parents in Partnership
Parents in Partnership (PiPs Fundraising) at Woodhouse West Primary School
We are a group of parents who organise fundraising events for our school throughout the year. These involve: Christmas Cards, Cake and Bake Sales, Raffles etc.
Our biggest event over the last few years has been the Summer Fair with lots of stalls, bouncy castles and tons of fun.
Over the last year we raised over £1,000. This money goes back into the school for specific projects: for example last winter, we contributed to a pantomime show performed at school which has been enjoyed by every child in the school and all the staff, and we are in the process of buying new play equipment for all children to use during break times.
Hopefully there will be at least one school disco this year – probably in February 2018! – watch this space for the date!
We are grateful to everyone who supports us with donations of money or cake, hands on help, ideas, selling raffle tickets etc.
We are always looking for new people to join our team, to share their skills and support us with ideas for fun (fundraising) activities.
Thank you to all to those who attended our coffee morning. Do you have any ideas, experience or suggestions what else to do or how to do things better? Come along to our next meeting on Tuesday 9th January 2018 at 2.30pm.
We also have a Facebook group (PIPs Parent Fund Raising) where we post updates and news. Check us out and join the group!
PiPs (Parents in Partnership) Fundraising Update:
Thank you to everyone who helped with cakes for our Macmillan Fundraiser in September. We raised an amazing £72.85 for them.
We bought lots of new play equipment: Big Connect Four, Jenga and Card games – Den and brick building kits and new football goals. They will be available for fun and play in the New Year.
The competitive bake sale started well with Y6. Next up are Y1 on December 8th. – Remember: the year group that raises the most of money will be able to spend this amount on something fun for them in the Summer Term.
