Easyfundraising and Easysearch

Whilst doing your shopping online this Christmas support us at no extra cost to yourself.
An easy way for everyone to help us to raise money is by using Easyfundraising and Easysearch.  By using Easyfundraising every time you shop online, you can raise money without any cost to you.  There are also some ways to raise money without shopping and also vouchers to save you money. With over 2000 retailers you are sure to find a shop you normally use.

Easysearch is powered by Yahoo and Bing! Every search raises 0.5p which doesn’t sound like a lot, but think about how many searches you do as a family each week.

We have so far raised over £600 with just 30
people using it.  To get involved go to

Recycled Uniform

We are very short of Recycled Uniform supplies, in particular  blue jumpers and PE kit.  If you have any items of uniform from jumpers, ties or PE kit that you can donate to our recycled Uniform stocks please drop them off at school reception or in the porch at 23 Kingsclere, Huntington.
We wash all items and mend any that need repairing.  We then sell these on at a cost of no more than £3 for a jumper.  Our stock can be seen by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page or going direct to Recycled Uniform page from the Information tab on the home page of the website.

If you have any contacts that may be able to help us with an event please get in touch.  We always welcome any input from parents and our local community.  If you would like to be involved, either by becoming a committee member or a helper at our events, we would love to hear from you.
