Could you support your local primary school?

Deighton Gates Primary School PTA need your support and they are offering an advertising opportunity too!

The PTA is a registered charity, and work hard to raise money for the benefit of the children and school. Over the last year, they have helped the support school with the upgrade of their IT suite, paid for new lockers and carpets in classrooms, as well as funding a public access defibrillator (available to the local community as well as school), together with an all weather fitness track for the school.

Their main target this year is to purchase a full class set of iPads for the children. The school were early adopters in the purchase of iPads, but the devices are now feeling their age and unable to cope with the latest educational apps that the children need.


They have nearly raised enough for the first tranche of 16 iPads (plus charging units, apps etc), and hope to be able to purchase these over the summer, with fundraising continuing into the Autumn as they seek to raise funds for the next 16!

This is where our local businesses and community come in...


Planning ahead for Deighton Gates Summer Fair, held on Saturday 6th July, with tickets available from early June on-wards. The PTA are hosting a raffle would love our local businesses to help in providing prizes?

All donations for the raffle will be advertised as we start selling the tickets (via newsletters to parents as well as via our Facebook and twitter accounts), so it's a great opportunity to promote your business, as well as hopefully generating more income from ticket sales for the PTA!


Their Christmas raffle raised a record breaking £1200, and they are hoping to better that this summer.
