Fundraising

SUPPORTING OUR SCHOOL

 

By supporting the following initiatives BLIS families can help raise funds to provide extra resources and special treats to enhance our pupils’ education.

 

50:50 CLUB: The Boughton Leigh Infant School 50:50 Club is a lottery which gives you a chance to win a monthly cash prize. This fundraiser is operated in other schools and has been very successful.

Thank you to those people who paid the £10 fee and signed up for the 50:50 Club at the Summer Fair. This represents a £1 stake in each of the 10 monthly draws (October to July) that will be held during the forthcoming academic year.

Half of the proceeds raised will be given in a cash prize each month. The remaining 50% will be donated to BLIS to benefit pupils. For example if 100 people join the 50:50 club, each month the prize will be £50. If 200 people join, the monthly prize will be £100 and so on.

The 50:50 Club is open to all BLIS families, their relatives and friends. Entrants must be over 16 years old. Sign up at the school office.

 

 

EASY FUNDRAISING: Every time you use the easyfundraising.org.uk website a percentage of the price of your purchase – from the weekly shop to annual holiday – will be donated to the school at no extra cost to you.

There are over 3,000 shops and sites ready to make a donation, including Amazon, EBay, Currys, Tesco, easyJet, thetrainline and Sainsbury's. Here’s how to get started:

  • Log on to www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/boughtonleighinfants/ to register.
  • Then every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want for your shopping.
  • Make your purchases as usual.
  • After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to our school for no extra cost whatsoever.

There are no catches or hidden charges and the school will benefit. Please ask family and friends to do the same and the money we raise will soon start to add up.

 

 

 

BAG 2 SCHOOL: Collection bags for this fundraising initiative are sent home with the children twice a year.

If you need more than one bag you can fill any other bag with items. Donations from friends and family are also very welcome as the amount we raise depends on the weight of the bags. Instead of throwing out unwanted items  please save them until the next collection.

TESCO BAGS OF HELP

We have been successful in applying for a grant from the Tesco Bags of Help Scheme.

From 1st March to 30th April 2018 our school will be one of the three causes that customers can vote for using the blue tokens available at check outs in the four Rugby stores:

 

  • Leicester Road superstore
  • Helvellyn Way express store
  • Cattlemarket express store (near the station)
  • Bilton express store (on Main Street)

 

 

If you buy anything in these stores during March and April you are entitled to a token – even if you don’t buy a bag. So please ask for a token if you are not given one and help us raise as much as we can.

 

The project with the highest number of votes gets £4,000, the second placed £2,000 and the third placed £1,000.
