Wincham Family & Friends
Wincham Family & Friends
Wincham Family & Friends (WFF) is the school’s PTA. It is a registered charity (No. 518686), which brings together the parents, guardians, grandparents, friends and staff of Wincham School together. It helps provide many extras that enhance the children’s lives in school.
All parents automatically become members of Wincham Family & Friends when their child joins the school. The social and fund raising events provide money for much needed facilities and resources for the children. Over the last 6 years WFF has contributed funds of around £65,000 to provide facilities for the school – some are listed below:
- IT Equipment
- “Golden mile” pathway on the school playing fields
- Adventure climbing equipment by the playground
- Replacement Oxford Reading Tree books
This is a strong and lively association. Each class has a parent representative who will keep you informed and involved.
We organise many events each year. These include our Freaky Friday Halloween Disco, School Calendar, Christmas Fayre, Bingo, Quiz Night, Easter Disco, Summer Fayre and much much more.
How to get involved?
The success of WFF depends entirely on the support of all parents, staff and the community. We greatly appreciate any assistance. This can be anything from a little time spent helping out in the background, to coming along to the functions with friends and family or by joining the WFF committee.
Share your fund raising ideas with us, we are always open to new ideas and welcome any suggestions from an idea for a stall at our events to a suggestion for a whole event.
Donations play a very big role in our fundraising efforts. We are not just talking about the very important Bags2School, but prize donations for raffles and competitions, as well as time for preparing or wrapping prizes and presents.
Maybe you work for a company which discards goods when they can’t be sold or would negotiate a great price for items we can sell or put in our tombola?
If you don’t fancy the job of sewing labels into summer uniform this could be a big help. Visit www.stamptastic.co.uk to find out more information and place an order if you wish to. Just use “CW96EP” as the code when you check out. It’s the easiest way to make sure that your child’s uniform is labelled and it will raise funds for the school at no extra cost to you too.
Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising a free donation for Wincham Family & Friends? It won’t cost you anything extra but it will raise funds for the school. There are nearly 3000 retailers on board including Amazon, Argos, M&S, Boots, John Lewis, EBay, thetrainline, Aviva and many of the big supermarkets. You don’t have to change where you shop – you just log in through the easyfundraising website first and then select the retailer you wish to buy from.
It’s very easy to sign up and use and there are no catches or hidden charges. Please visit our Easyfundraising Page to register or to find out more. Thank you for your support.
Do you work for Barclays or a company who has a Matched Funding scheme? If so, you could help make a huge difference to WFF, as the bank operates a £4£ scheme to match fundraising their staff are involved in. For every pound we raise, they will match it! Contact WFF to find out more.
