Brookfield School, like many other schools across London, has had its government income cut in the last few years. This is because of flat funding, increased costs and the proposed ‘Fairer Funding’ initiative. The PTA is committed to raising as much money as possible for the school, which is why we need your help.
The PTA raises money through winter and summer fairs, bake sales and other events.
Each year it funds several trips for the children, including helping towards the costs of the year 6 residential week at Sayers Croft, the year 5 trip to Paris, the year 2 trip to Broadstairs and several others. It also helps towards various artistic activities including Shakespeare workshops, the FAB project, music lessons and instruments, swimming, and other learning resources.
If you want to know more about the PTA funded projects, please do get in touch.
How you can help?
In addition to organising lots of exciting fundraising events, the school has also signed up to two initiatives: ‘MyDonate’ and Easyfundraising. This will make it easier for people to donate money directly to the school.
Below are some of the projects and associated costs which we would love you to consider supporting. You can either do this through a one-off gift or as a regular standing order / direct debit. Please see the letter at the bottom of this page. Any donation however small will be gratefully received. Thank you!
This page is for general donations and means money from people who pay UK income tax can qualify for Gift Aid, so for every £1 they give the government will add another 25p. Using the MyDonate page will also allow people to donate a regular small amount by direct debit as well as making one-off contributions.
Past generous donations have funded a fantastic and popular climbing wall in the KS2 playground as well as other play equipment.
You can make a donation to the school at any time and you don’t need to be a Brookfield parent. So if you would like to donate some money, or if you know others who might want to, then please go to: mydonate.bt.com/charities/brookfieldschoolassociation.
If you shop online, signing up to Easyfundraising will also help Brookfield.
By clicking and joining us on Easyfundraising, your purchases with over 3,000 shops and sites, (retailers such as Ocado, Amazon and uSwitch) will mean Brookfield gets a donation every time you shop.
And it won’t cost you anything! Join up and ask family and friends to sign up too.
Every penny raised will help children at Brookfield and your generosity will make a real difference to the lives of children at Brookfield now and in the future.
