Who we are....
We're your PTA!
How can you help?
We'd love you to join us for brainstorming with ideas towards improving your school for your kids.
We're all purchasing our school uniform and Tescos kindly donate a 5% cash donation to our school. We can add even more to this when we link it in with the easyfundraising.org.uk. A further 2.5% will go towards our school! Download and log in, it's so easy!
Every time you purchase something on line from certain stores, the store will donate a certain percentage to our cause, with no cost to you.
Help Friends Of Bracken Lane - Retford raise money by using easyfundraising.org.uk every time you shop online.
You don’t have to come to the meetings to help…
What have we done so far?
We have had a very successful year building on the achievements of previous years. Our fundraising income increased to £10,293 for the year ending August 2016.
I think you'll agree that is a staggering amount which we couldn't have done without the help of you, the teachers and of course the children with their endless enthusiasm.
We've been helped tremendously by local businesses through stalls, donations and sponsorship. A special thank you goes to Newton Fallowell who sponsors our advertising boards and the Tag Rugby team, Gap Signs Technology for producing our summer fair advertising banners and Prima Party for donating free use of the bouncy castle for the Easter Bunny Hop.
Through the school events we’re hoping to build a stronger community involving local businesses.
What have we spent the money on so far?
We have made donations totalling £6,609 to the school this year including...
We have also recently agreed to purchase goal posts, a cricket fold, an all weather surface for under the tractor and maypole for the Country Dancers.
So that's why Friends Of Bracken Lane needs you!
