Earl Soham School has a very active Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA), which raises funds to support the school and helps to maintain a strong sense of community. In the last few years we have enabled the school to buy new learning and play equipment, have supported coach travel for school trips, and have purchased Christmas, Easter and leavers’ gifts for the children. We run regular fundraising events, as well as non-fundraising events such as the Christmas party for the children. We are always keen for new volunteers to join the PTFA committee or to organise individual events – please contact Patrick Goymer for details (firstname.lastname@example.org).
HOW YOU CAN DONATE
From Monday 18th March, for three months, Earl Soham PTFA will be one of the community token scheme charities in the Framlingham, Debenham and Eye branches of East of England Co-op. Please put your green tokens in the PTFA section of the collection box at the end of your shop.
If you shop online, you can support the school by using www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/earlsohamcps/ to access a large range of well-known internet shopping sites, or you can use www.smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1056384-0 for all your Amazon purchases. Shopping via these sites having registered the PTFA as your chosen charity will automatically result in a donation to the PTFA.
Some supporters like to donate a regular monthly amount to the PTFA via a standing order. These are very easy to set up, and you can get the necessary bank details by contacting Patrick Goymer (email@example.com).
We have a secondhand book exchange next to the school office to raise money for the PTFA. Please donate any adult or children’s books that you have finished with, and then please donate 50p into the box if you take another one.
