HAVE A FANTASTIC SUMMER IN THE MEANTIME AND
FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT THIS YEAR
With no Christmas or Summer Fair possible this year, we've missed out on a lot of fun and lost a big funding stream worth £thousands to the school. Nevertheless, we continued to raise money whenever possible - and all money will go towards Chromebooks for the children.
A huge thank you to all the Woodside parents for supporting the non-uniform days, Bag2School clothes collections, Christmas events, Topsy Turvy Day and the Raffle. Altogether, we have raised over £2,000.
There are a few other simple ways in which you can help fundraise for the school online throughout the year... please read below for ideas.
Log in to www.smile.amazon.co.uk and select The Woodside Parent Teacher Association - you'll be supporting the school every time you shop because Amazon will make a small donation. If you add the reminder, Amazon will remember to take you to Smile, even if you forget! If you have the Amazon app, look for 'smile' in the settings.
Use easyfundraising to shop with over 3,600 retailers including Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com, eBay, Boden, and M&S.
Every time you shop, you’ll raise a free donation, it’s that easy! Click here to find out more and make sure you select Woodside Primary School.
Sign up for one or more ticket per week and you could be a winner. Every week, a Woodside ticket is guaranteed to win a small cash prize. All players are also entered into a wider weekly draw for £25,000. 40p in every £1 played will be donated to the school. As a comparison, the National Lottery donates 28p in the pound to good causes.

1. Go to butlins.com/PTA
2. Under the How to Redeem section, click ‘Book a Break’
3. Enter the code WPTA2 and check that Woodside Primary PTA appears
4. Check availability and book your break as normal
We’ve checked a few example holidays, with the code and without. The price doesn’t change, so the money given to Woodside is a genuine charity donation
5. Butlin’s will make their donation to the school 90 days after your return
A big hello from the Woodside PTA team
Money raised over the years has helped to fund a minibus, adventure climbing frames, library books, iPads and interactive whiteboards. In 2018/19, we were delighted to hand the school a cheque for £20,000, which was used to refurbish the Year 2 classroom and in 2019/2020 we raised £9,000 towards the new Reception canopy.
None of this would be possible without the continued support of the parents and staff of Woodside. You can help by attending events, joining our 'Helper List', donating raffle prizes... or try asking your employer's HR department about match funding schemes. Our charity number is 290550.
