Boxgrove PTA Events & Fundraising Initiatives

All of our Events and Fundraising Initiatives are key to successfully raising money for Boxgrove to help fund equipment and activities for all children. Below you'll find the upcoming Events, that are taking place this year, as well as our ongoing Fundraising Initiatives. 

So please come along to an Event, they're always good fun, and take a moment to look at the Fundraising initiatives.

You'll be surprised how easy it is to help raise money for the school!

PTA Events

We are excited to be launching a new way of organising our events that will hopefully help you as well as us. We will continue to give information on our school website page, via facebook and through the class reps, but will sell tickets for our events online from now on.

If you click on www.pta-events.co.uk/bpta you will be taken to our site. You only need to register if you want to make a purchase, otherwise you can just see what's going on. We are not planning at this stage to use the website for 'marketing', so if you do register you won't be bombarded with emails or asked to volunteer.

In the future we might be able to sell advertising space on this site to raise further funds for school. If this is something that you might be interested in, please drop us a line on boxgrovepta@gmail.com. Also if you have any feedback on the site, please email and let us know.

To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.co.uk from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark smile.amazon.co.uk to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile. Log in and choose Boxgrove Parent Teacher Association as your chosen charity.


You can also turn on AmazonSmile in the mobile app, click here for the instructions on how to do this... it's really very easy!


What is AmazonSmile?


AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Boxgrove PTA every time you shop at Amazon, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.co.uk, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.co.uk, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to Boxgrove PTA!

Please do ‘click and collect’ it’s as easy as that! In the last academic year we raised nearly £500 just from Easy Fundraising! 

We are delighted to announce that the school is holding a textile collection for the "Happy School Bag" Fundraising Scheme. This is a fantastic opportunity to raise eco-friendly awareness amongst children and raise much needed funds for the school.


What's the "Happy School Bag" Fundraising Scheme? 


This scheme is designed to help schools to raise funds and to help the environment by diverting discarded but reusable textiles away from landfill. In the UK alone we consume and discard over 1.4 million tonnes of textiles a year which goes directly into landfill despite the fact that there is spare capacity in textile recycling plants. By taking part in this scheme you help to reduce this amount by giving textiles a new lease of life.


How can I support this great fundraising programme?


To take part you simply need to fill the Happy School bag with unwanted but clean & dry clothing. There will be plastic bags in the school office for people to pick up and use.


They will accept men’s, women’s and children’s reusable clothing, reusable paired shoes & footwear, fashion accessories, handbags, belts, light jewellery, scarves, hats etc., console games and souvenirs ​(small decorative ornaments, unwanted gift boxsets).


They will not accept single shoes, mats, carpets, pillows, duvets, blankets, bedlinen, curtains, bric-a-brac, dirty-damaged-wet-damp-smelly items, old fashioned clothing, uniforms or toys (soft or hard) - you can keep these to donate to the Summer or Christmas Fair stalls, books or DVD's (please see the Ziffits Fundraising Initiative!).


Remember that the more you fill up the bag the more the school can raise; the school will receive a competitive rate per kilo; you can also use additional black bin bags if required. The last collection raised an amazing £640!


When is the next collection day?


The Happy School Bag van will be collecting from our school on Monday 9th November 2020.


You can drop off your bags on the following dates & times:
Wednesday 4th November 2020 - Drop & Pick up.
Thursday 5th November 2020 - Drop & Pick up.
Friday 6th November 2020 - Drop & Pick up.
Monday 9th November 2020 - Drop off only.


Where do I drop off the bags?


Please drop off your bags inside the Year group entrance you would use to go into school.


So, if you normally throw out your unwanted clothes or have bits and pieces gathering dust in the wardrobe, please donate them to our "Happy School Bag" collection!


Don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a good clear out too! Everyone can take part so spread the word and let’s get fundraising!

Did you know the Boxgrove PTA could maximise fundraising with help from you and the companies you work for?


An increasing number of companies operate a Match Funding Scheme whereby they “match” charity fundraising undertaken by their employees (usually on a £ for £ basis up to a maximum amount). The amount offered will vary on the organisation and there may be conditions that apply.


Many organisations offer a scheme but do not generally advertise this to their staff very well, so you may need to check with your Human Resources department.


Please click here for a list of companies that we know potentially offer match funding, however, there may be more. If you know that your company offers a scheme and you would like to help at any of our events, please contact a member of the Boxgrove PTA committee.

Be prepared for the new school term!


School life is a lot easier when things don’t go missing! Now’s the time to get organised for the new school term!


We've teamed up with MyNameTags who with every order using our unique link below they will donate 20% to the BPTA!


The clothes labels and stickers are extremely hardwearing and save a great deal of effort and potential lost property. They can be used on school uniforms, brownies/guides clothes, football kits, in fact almost anything.

I am raising funds for my daughters school to help fund a new playground to be used by children at Boxgrove Primary School for many years to come."
