Hinckley Parks Fundraisers (PTA)
The Hinckley Parks Fundraisers are a group of parents, grandparents, carers and teachers that volunteer their time in order to raise money to fund extra experiences, equipment and opportunities for all our children at Hinckley Parks Primary School.
We are all about community and everyone feeling included. New members are always made to feel welcome and we can always find a way to make use of any time or skills you may have to throw into the mix.
How you can get involved:
Coffee mornings: Held during the first week of each month in the main hall, they provide a relaxed, informal opportunity for you to come along and meet some of the members, catch up with friends and get involved with the baking of cakes and serving the drinks if you want to.
Bonus ball draw: Weather permitting, the bonus ball draw takes place every Tuesday in the Butt Lane playground and every Thursday in the Leicester Road playground. The winning number is taken from the Saturday night Lotto bonus ball draw, half the money raised goes to the winner and the other half goes into the PTA funds. We appreciate your support in buying your numbers and would welcome any offers from people happy to take a turn in manning the stall.
Fundraising stall: The stall runs on Fridays from 3-3.30pm and is located outside the old Maths building in the Butt Lane playground. Items sold on the stall include tuck, cakes, re-used children’s clothes, books, games and toys. We need ongoing donations of the above items and would welcome anyone wanting to help out with the running of the stall. Other ways you can get involved: There are many ways you could be involved with the fundraising, including; manning a stall at the Summer or Christmas Fairs, using your publisher or Photoshop skills to create newsletters, flyers & posters, getting creative and making things for themed nights and activities, donating raffle prizes, forwarding your suggestions for fundraisers and improvements. Your support would be welcomed regardless of how little or often you can give it.
Communication: Newsletters are sent out in school bags on a regular basis and contain information about future fundraisers, updates about monies raised and spent, along with any current donation requests. Facebook – The Hinckley Parks Fundraisers Facebook page is the perfect way to get updates about what’s on, what help is needed and where the money we raise will be spent. The page is for all information relating to PTA matters; please use it responsibly, any other matters relating to the School need to be addressed via the School office.
