Like most PTAs, the majority of our funds are raised through a wide variety of fun and social events such as Discos, Fairs, Film Clubs, Jumble Sales and Quizzes, as well as Second Hand Uniform and Ice Cream Sales. Fitz Friends is extremely conscious of the ethos and diversity of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this.
Donations from parents, carers and local residents and businesses are extremely important. We have, over time, developed strong links with the local community and are always well supported by both residents and businesses, for which we are very grateful. Many of our businesses and local shops are very generous providing donations for raffle prizes, auction items etc and some have taken part in our Christmas and summer fairs.
We are also extremely grateful to the local businesses who have participated in charity matched giving schemes and donations. This has made a huge difference to our fundraising efforts.
