Help Us Raise Funds
As well as events, there are a number of ongoing low effort ways we use to continually raise funds. Below are details of our ongoing schemes:
The Giving Machine:to join, register as a Giver to Bryn Deri primary school on The Giving Machine website. All you then do is shop via The Giving Machine website at participating websites. Each purchase generates a donation. It doesn't cost you anything!
Book your child's party at Coconuts Play & Party Centre, Sully and Coconuts will donate 10% of the price of the party to Bryn Deri PTA. To claim this, enter 'Bryn Deri Primary School' in to the additional information box when booking the party online or phone and mention Bryn Deri Primary when booking. Bryn Deri Primary MUST be mentioned at the time of booking either online or by phone to qualify for this fantastic offer.
PTA Prize Draw: Many parents subscribe to this and each month you have the chance to win £25, £15 or £10. You pay £12 per entrant annually which equates to £1 per month.
Matched Funding: If your employer operates a Fund Match scheme and you would like to help the PTA in this way, please let the school office know and someone from the PTA will contact you to discuss your companies' scheme requirements.
Advertising on Bryn Deri Noticeboard: space (A5 paper size) is available at a charge of £10 per term to advertise on the Bryn Deri PTA noticeboard, located next to the Junior entrance. If you would like to place an advert, contact the school office to arrange.
