The Social and Fundraising Committee would like to remind you about a simple and effective way you can help us raise money in support of the Parents’ Guild. As you know, the funds we raise go towards enhancing the experience our daughters have at NHEHS by helping to provide additional equipment or facilities.
Easyfundraising is a website where you can shop online directly with over 3000 retailers and at the same time (and at no extra cost) generate a donation for the school. While the value of the donation will depend on the items purchased and individual retailers, it can be up to 15% of the value of the purchase. These donations are then also eligible for Gift Aid.
Your purchases with the retailer will still be through their secure payment pages, the price remains the same, details of your purchases remain confidential and you can even participate anonymously should you wish.
It an efficient, low impact way for us all to raise additional funds and many NHEHS parents are already supporting the Parents’ Guild by shopping this way.
Registering is quick and easy. Further general information is available, including a list of retailers on the easyfundraising website which you can visit via our registration page
The funds raised by social events and other initiatives goes towards buying extra equipment for the school. Some of the items purchased for the school by the Parents’ Guild recently include:
Cooker, fridge-freezer, 12 portable hobs and range of kitchen utensils for use in teaching the integrated curriculum throughout the school.
