Yet another busy year is drawing to a close, and for many PTAs their winter fundraisers are some of the biggest and best events on the calendar. We’ve scoured social media to find out what inspiring and magical events you wonderful volunteers have been organising, so here’s a little taste of what you’ve been up to!
Gwyn Jones PTA in Leytonstone had a VERY successful Mickey Mouse themed holiday fair:
Sensational day for our Mickey’s Very Merry Holiday Fair! Huge turnout! Thank you to our hard-working volunteers and our generous sponsors. We raised about £3,000 for our school so our new KS2 playground equipment is going to be amazing! 🤩 pic.twitter.com/jnXvzjFdQF— Gwyn Jones PTA (@GWYNJONESPTA) December 9, 2017
Coed Glas PTA in Cardiff had lots of fun at their Christmas Fair – we love the picture collage!
Thank you to everyone who came to support @CoedGlas Christmas Fair! We raised an amazing £1926.51! Special thanks to @CoedGlas2018 for running stalls from 1pm-3pm, staff & the many volunteers who pitched in today. Santa said @CoedGlas children were all very well behaved 🎅🏻🎁 pic.twitter.com/u3Zi4uw03J— Coed Glas PTA (@coedglaspta) December 8, 2017
What a fantastic grotto for Santa and his elves at Howard School in Croydon:
Just look at these amazing raffle hampers made up from donations at Poplar Primary School in Merton Park! Their whole fair was also sponsored by a local company.
(Psst! Thinking of getting sponsors for your PTA events next year? Ask us about a new and easy way to do this online!)
Fantastic face painting skills on show at St. Andrews CoE School in Maghull!
What a great turnout at St. Augustine’s Christmas fair – and a fantastic amount raised for the school too!
A very busy fair at St. Anne’s Fulshaw in Wilmslow resulted in a £2134 profit!
We love this idea, a professional Festive Photobooth at Grazebrook’s Winter Fair:
Abbots Langley Primary had some fantastic homemade gifts and decorations for sale at their fair, courtesy of their talented Year 6 pupils!
There was live music, a Christmas jumper stall, hook-a-cracker AND Santa at Little Ealing’s Christmas Bazaar!
This was a popular fundraiser for schools this year – partnering with a local company to sell Christmas trees and wreaths for a profit share, like Friends of Salusbury in London:
A HUGE thanks to @qpstnflowers for partnering with us to sell christmas trees & wreaths at our fair last saturday. They're in the playground again TODAY with a percentage of all sales going to the school. Stunning XMAS TREES at AMAZING prices & FUNDRAISING for the school! pic.twitter.com/2vdJ8qlp5L— Friends of Salusbury (@SalusburyFoSS) December 9, 2017
And this school in Daventry had some very special visitors at their fair!
