The focus of our fundraising over the past couple of years has been The Playground Appeal where we were set the ambitious task of raising £70,000 to update the playgrounds at both Worrall Road and Lower Redland Road.

Amazingly, with a lot of hard work and support from parents and carers at St John’s we achieved this target within 2 years and the children have been enjoying their new exciting and stimulating playgrounds.

Over the years the PTA has also funded many other things;

  • Laptops
  • iPads
  • Interactive whiteboards
  • Learning resources and play equipment
  • Library books
  • Other regular commitments such as a Classroom and Special Educational Needs allowance

How Can I Support Fundraising?

Did you know that you can raise money for the school every time you go shopping online?

You can, and it’s the easiest way to raise extra money for the school, at no extra cost to you except for a few extra clicks on your computer! Details of some fantastic ways to earn money for St. John’s as you shop are below:

Amazon Smile

As a registered charity, the St John’s PTA is eligible to receive donations through Amazon Smile.

If you shop on Amazon, please consider shopping through their ‘Amazon Smile’ website.  You can access exactly the same products as through the usual Amazon site, but Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to the charity of your choice.  The first time you log in, you will be asked to choose which charity you’d like to support.  If you’d like to support our school, please click on this link smile.amazon.co.uk and select ‘St John’s School PTA (Clifton)’ as your chosen charity (NB make sure you include the apostrophe in John’s when searching or you may struggle to find it!).

The Giving Machine

The Giving Machine is a not-for-profit social enterprise, which helps shoppers generate free cash donations for the causes they want to support every time they shop on-line.

It’s free and easy to register, and you can generate funds for St John’s with your on-line shopping (at no additional cost to you).  There are hundreds of participating shops including Amazon, Tesco, Sainsbury, M&S, ebay, Toys R Us, Next, John Lewis, and many more.

How does it work?

  1. Go to www.thegivingmachine.co.uk
  2. Click on ‘Join in’ at the top
  3. Click on ‘Join as a Giver’
  4. Click on ‘Choose a cause to support’
  5. Where it says “Enter Keywords” type in “St. John’s CE VC Primary School Clifton” (make sure you get this exactly right as there are more than one St Johns Clifton!) and hit ‘Search’
  6. St. John’s should come up at the top of a list, click the red “Choose” button
  7. Fill out your details on the right hand side of the screen

Just remember to access your chosen on-line shop via the Giving Machine web page, and you will generate cash for St John’s as you shop! When you check out, a percentage of the sales commission creates a tax-free donation to the school.

Ask friends, family members, and even any businesses you are involved with to shop this way too. We recommend popping a Bookmark on your Bookmarks Bar, or setting The Giving Machine as your default homepage so that you don’t forget.

The ‘Scooters for Schools’ Initiative with Micro-Scooters

If anyone is thinking of buying a scooter or any of the amazing range of accessories that can go with them, please do consider going to the www.micro-scooters.co.uk site. Micro Scooters will donate 10% of every purchase to St. John’s.

All you need to do is put in our school’s unique reference number when you place your order.  That number is 109146.  This is a really easy way for the school to make money from gifts people are planning on purchasing anyway – please remember to use the code and get earning!!

My Name Tags

For every order of personalised labels for children’s clothing and equipment, My Nametags will donate 20% to the school.

Every order placed when clicking on this link and using the school ID 21484 will be counted in the fundraising total for our school.  https://www.mynametags.com/

We now have a Just Giving account so it is easier than ever to fundraise for St John’s Primary PTA!
