Keep up to date with our events on Facebook @doreparentsassociation

Fundraising is ongoing throughout the year, including events such as parent’s quiz nights, Christmas tree collection, the Christmas fair, the summer fun run and providing refreshments at events such as sports day and the nativity play. All monies raised contribute hugely to the quality of our children’s school life, and offers the opportunity for school to purchase items that otherwise the school budget would not be able to stretch to.

In the last few years the DPA have purchased Chrome Books, blinds for the junior hall, the tyre park for the infant’s playground as well as costumes for the Y6 production and much more.

We welcome all parents to be a part of the DPA, either by joining in the activities organised or donating their time or items wanted for a specific event.

Each time we return a box full of used cartridges the DPA will receive a cash donation from Empties Please.

Usborne Books

One of our amazing parents is an Independent Usborne Organiser and she has very kindly offered to
give back to school 60p for every £1 spent to spend on Usborne books of their choice.

Corporate Match Funding

Match funding has the ability to increase the funds from our school fundraising events many times over.
An increasing number of large companies operate a match funding scheme whereby they match charity fundraising undertaken by their employees. At the last bun sale a parent who works for Aviva secured a total of £250 in match funding which was in return for their time they volunteered during the event. What a fantastic addition to our fundraising total.
Many companies set aside millions of pounds to fund such schemes and are more than happy to support their staff in raising money for charities of their choice. The amounts donated range from £250 to £1000 + per employee per event.
Dore Parents Association is a registered charity so we are in a position to benefit from such schemes and your involvement, however big or small at future fundraising events.

If your employer offers a match funding scheme, please contact Faye Kirk, Treasurer of our Parents Association so that we can see how to comply with their requirements. Please email dorepafinance@gmail.com.

If you have any ideas on how to raise funds for the school, please email DoreParents@gmail.com.
