FROSTYs receives lots of invitations from companies offering fundraising schemes.
We have decided to promote the Easyfundraising scheme which allows FROSTYs to receive funds when you shop online – at no cost to you at all.
However there are several other schemes, which the school is registered to, which are listed below, along with details of how to use them to raise additional funds for the school.
Many thanks for all your support!
You can collect free donations for Friends Of Saint Teresa's RC School Manchester every time you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - with easyfundraising and it doesn't cost you a penny extra.
There are nearly 3,000 retailers on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury's.
It's really simple, all you have to do is:
Head to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/invite/I1HO22/ and sign up for free, to Friends Of Saint Teresa’s RC School Manchester. If you use this link, because we've invited you to join, FROSTYs will earn an extra £1.
Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first, pick the retailer you want and start shopping
After you've checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause for no extra cost whatsoever!
There are no catches or hidden charges and FROSTYs will be really grateful for your donations.
Are you thinking of buying a micro-scooter as a present? If you buy your scooter at www.micro-scooters.co.uk St Teresa’s will receive 10% of your order price back, with every order placed that quotes the School’s URN 106355. The website operates a lowest price guarantee – and will honour any genuine micro scooter price that you find in-store or online.
FROSTYs also operates a clothing collection that raises funds for the school. The collection point is the FROSTYs wheelie bin in the junior playground. You can donate at any time, and clothes are picked up as soon as the donation bin becomes full. FROSTYs is paid by the kg for clothing you donate. For example, in September and October 2016 FROSTYs raised £221.80 through clothes donations. Keep up the good work!
Many companies offer their employees the chance to take part in a matched funding scheme. The company will provide additional funding to a good cause (usually on a £ to £ basis up to a maximum amount). Often the employee must have been involved in the fundraising event as a volunteer – but they may also opt to make donations independently.
For example, a parent who works for a company that offers matched giving, volunteers to work in organising the summer fair. The profit made by the fair is £1000. The parent’s employer will then match this amount with a further £1000. The amount offered will vary depending on the organisation and conditions may apply, such as the requirement for the organisation to be a registered charity; if this is the case the school could apply through the PTA.
Also a parent may opt to make a cash donation to the school, which again could be matched by their organisation, depending on the individual scheme.
If you are interested in completing a sponsored event on behalf of the school please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
For example in 2015 Emin raised £350 for the school through completing a sponsored 100km bike ride.
All funds raised go directly back into your children’s education, supporting FROSTYs projects within the school. Further information will be provided about each year’s projects, following the FROSTYs committee vote each autumn.
