Friends of Red Hill Field
Welcome to our PTA, the 'FRIENDS'. We are a small dedicated team of parents who raise money for the benefit of all the children at Red Hill Field School. Our funds are used solely to provide all the extras not included within the school budget. This helps to enrich the learning environment for our children and makes our school "a happy place to learn".
Here you can find information on how you can boost our funds through schemes such as Gift Aid and The Giving Machine. We will also let you know about our forthcoming events and fundraising schemes such as plant sales and textile collections...so come back soon!
You can also find out more on our Facebook page. Search for Friends of Red Hill Field Primary School and request to join the group.
Friday 17th March: Adult Quiz Night - join us for one of our most popular events, the Red Hill Field Quiz Night. With a fantastic quizmaster, pizza and a bar this is sure to be a great event. In teams of up to 8, pit your wits against the others to see who will be crowned quiz champions. Tickets cost £5 a head and are available from the office.
The 200 club is a monthly prize draw organised by the FRIENDS of Red Hill, paying out cash to the winners, whilst raising funds for the school. To date we have raised over 6,000 for the school and this money has been spent on the two trim trails seen in the school grounds. If we sold all 200 of the numbers we would raise an amazing 4,000 each year which could be put to great use for the children of Red Hill.
You buy a number, or numbers, between 1 and 200, which are exclusive to you. The monthly draw takes place on the third Friday of every month and 45% of the money collected that month is paid out as prize money. There are prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd…the more numbers sold, the bigger the prize money!
Each number you have costs £3 a month. You can have as many numbers as you like. The winners receive their cheque by the end of the month in which the draw has taken place. The easiest way is to pay by standing order each month – then you don’t have to do anything! All you need to do is sign the 200 Club form setting up the standing order with your bank and we will do the rest.
Alternatively, you could pay annually by cheque, but the onus will be on you to get the money in on time…only numbers paid for by the 10th of each month will be entered. A list of numbers available is kept by Vikki Everest. Please complete and return this form and return to the school office and Vikki will contact you.
Are you a taxpayer? Do you want your tax to help the FRIENDS raise money for the children of Red Hill Field School? If so then the Government’s ‘Gift Aid’ scheme means we get more money for your donation at no additional cost to you.If you are a UK taxpayer, then we can claim back 28p from the Inland Revenue for every £1 you donate to us. That means that every £1 of your donation is worth £1.28.
If you would like us to claim Gift Aid on your donation, please complete and return the Gift Aid Declaration.
