Help us to help your children and their school
Chollerton First School is supported by an active PTFA, whose purpose is to raise funds for the benefit of the school and its children and to have some fun in doing so! All parents and friends of the school are invited to support the various fundraising events during the year and volunteers are always welcome to help and organise events. The PTFA looks forward to your support this year.

A note of Easyfundraising
The Easyfundraising website is an excellent way for the PTFA to raise money just through people doing their normal shopping online. www.easyfundraising.org.uk allows you to shop direct with retailers online as you normally would, but by using the links from the easyfundraising website first, each purchase you make will generate a cashback donation to Chollerton First School PTFA. For example every £1 spent on Amazon will donate 2.5p to the PTFA; other retailers donate different amounts, Retailers include Amazon, M&S, Next, John Lewis, B&Q, Argos, Tesco and hundreds more.
It's easy to do:
- Log on to www.easyfundraising.org.uk website.
- Click on 'Find a cause' and type in Chollerton First School PTFA.
- Once the words 'Chollerton First School' appear in the box go to the top of the page and in the white box (beside the word 'go') type in the name of the store you wish to shop from - then online shop as normal.
