Free up your wallets by handing in any leftover holiday currency or old British coins (old £1 anyone?). These can be dropped into the school office in an envelope marked FOWO CURRENCY and we then collect and send them off to receive extra funds for FOWO.
And finally, FUND MATCHING!
You may work for a company that offers to match fundraising for charities that you support.
If you help on a stall for 30 minutes at our Christmas fair or any event, your company may be able to match the funds raised on that stall which doubles the profit. All additional funds make a huge difference to the support we can give the school – we nearly doubled the profit at last year’s Summer Fair through fund matching. Please check with your employer to see if they offer this benefit.
