What We Do
The summer and Christmas Fayres are our main fundraising events each year, but we also run smaller seasonal, sponsored and themed events throughout the year, such as the Easter Eggstravaganza. Our termly discos are also a regular item. We also provide refreshments and raffles at the school’s summer and Christmas concerts and organise ice cream and uniform sales throughout the year.
Our Fundraising So Far…
The 2018/2019 school year saw some exciting additions to our school thanks to our fundraising.
As well as the cost of the Circus at the Summer Fayre, the PTA contributed towards the ongoing upgrade of the school IT Resources. Other purchases included additional books for school, resources for our Foundation Stage (FS) class, bookbags for the new FS starters and Year 6 leavers ball food and gifts, as well as planner diaries for the new Year 6 children to prepare them for their move to secondary school.
At our Annual General Meeting in September we discussed a number of areas where we can potentially support the school and enhance our children’s environment. These are currently under discussion and will be communicated shortly.
How You Can Help
If you, your family or friends could help in preparation for, or during an event, or have a particular creative talent, we would like to hear from you! There are also many other ways in which you can contribute:
- Donate good quality gifts for raffles/ tombolas or items to sell on stalls.
- Donate good quality logo'd school uniform.
- Provide feedback/ new ideas for further fundraising activities.
- Let us know of any organisations you are linked with that could offer support for our ongoing fundraising.
Fancy Getting Involved?
If you fancy getting involved and having fun, we would love to welcome you to one of our William Levick FUNdraiser meetings. Getting involved with the WLF team is a fantastic way of meeting other people and finding out about the school. We generally meet once or twice each half term, depending on which events we are organising, with meetings usually held on a Monday evening in the Miners Arms on Carr Lane.
