CROWDFUNDING

Dear All,

The school needs your help to spread the word for our biggest fund raiser ever!

As you will agree, our children are growing up in a changing digital world, and we must prepare them to enter this world with confidence. We need to provide them the fast, reliable and modern laptops, tablets and science equipment to work with. But our IT equipment is now outdated; and having grown by 130 pupils in five years, there are not enough devices for everyone to have hands-on experience.

Our goal is to raise £14,000 and because it’s such a big amount, we’re doing it through “crowdfunding”. This means we will ask as many people as possible to donate what they can. So we need you to send our funding request on, to everyone you can think of.

Please send the link below to your family (incl. your own uncles, aunts, cousins and your children’s godparents etc), friends, neighbours, other members of clubs/hobby groups you belong to and/or work colleagues. All donors will be publicly recognised (unless prefer to remain anonymous).

 

If you are a social media fan, please publicise the link in your updates on Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms asking your followers to donate what they can (minimum donation is £1).

 

This is the link to our fund raiser with the option to donate online by card:

Visitors will be asked by the Website to register as a Community Member, then you can make a Pledge by visiting the Project Profile Page, selecting the amount they wish to contribute by submitting payment by card.

 

If anyone would prefer to hand in their donations, they can be handed into the school reception, in a marked envelope.

Thank you very much for all the publicity, support and donations.

February 2016

FOTOPS organised two school discos for the children. It was well supported and the children had a great time.

 

 

Here are some of the projects that FOTOPS have been involved with:

 What Is FOTOPS?

 

FOTOPS stands for the Friends of Towcester Primary School, and is a group of volunteers who help raise money for the school and its pupils.  This is generally done by holding fetes, raffles, cake sales, but also includes lots of other fun events.  

 

FOTOPS is a registered charity with official members, as well as helpers.  FOTOPS meet at least once each half term to brainstorm and plan fundraising activities.  Details of our upcoming meetings and events can be found on the noticeboard or on the FOTOPS section of the school website.

  

Helpers Needed!

 

FOTOPS always need helpers, we wouldn't be able to do the things we do without them!  We need helpers to give us ideas and suggestions for fundraising activities, we will also need helpers at all of the above events.  Being a helper doesn't mean that you have to give up lots of your time. It simply means that we will invite you to our FOTOPS meetings, so that you can contribute ideas and suggestions, and if you are available to help at our events as they come up then brilliant, if you are not that's totally fine.  You might think that if you come to a meeting, that you might be lumbered with lots of work to do or have to commit to helping at an event.  This is certainly not the case.

 

If you would like to be a FOTOPS helper, then please speak to one of the official members, email us at FOTOPS@hotmail.co.uk or drop your contact details into the school office and they will pass them on to us.  Alternatively, come and introduce yourself at our next meeting, which will be announced on the noticeboard/here soon.
