Fundraising

Throughout the year we raise money for a variety of causes. We try to contribute towards charities such as Children in Need or Comic Relief but we also look to fund projects and equipment in school, some of which may be long term aims.

On this page you can see what has been raised and purchased and the progress we're making on new projects. Click on the links at the foot of the page to see what we have raised in previous years.



June 2013 - Wyton Marathon

£792.47 has been raised so far by the children as they ran round our marathon course. The KS1 children ran and walked for 45 minutes and the KS2 children spent an hour completing as many laps as they could. The money is being split equally between the school and the East Anglian Children's Hospice.

March 2013 - Talent Show

£293.50 was made from the sale of red noses and from people paying to enter our talent contest all of which will go towards Comic Relief. Children also were invited to wear something red which helped to boost the total.

December 2012 - Christmas Fayre

£333 was generated from our Christmas Fayre with all of the money going to help the school buy equipment. Throughout the week leading up to the event, all of the KS2 children had been busy baking cakes and biscuits under the excellent guidance of Mrs. Jones and these proved very popular. Along with some of the games and competitions there was also a raffle and face painting plus many other stalls. Thank you to the Friends of Wyton for their help with the organisation.

November 2012 - Laser Quest

£84 was made in profit following another Laser Quest evening with the money raised from this being put towards additional PE equipment.

November 2012 - Children in Need

£270.68 is the sum donated to Children in Need through the selling of cakes baked by children and parents in addition to children and staff coming to school wearing hats associated with The Mad Hatter's Tea Party.

October 2012 - ProKick

£810.30 has been raised through children getting sponsored for an event which involved kicking a football as hard as they could. The ProKick organisation were the organisers and they erected a giant goal in the hall which included a speed gun to measure the ferocity of kicking. With prizes going to the fastest kickers it was eagerly anticipated, especially amongst those interested in football and with the money being shared equally between ourselves and schools in Africa, it was a very worthwhile event.

October 2012 - Harvest

£178.46 was raised through selling apple-based cakes which were made by the children throughout the school under the guidance of Mrs. Jones who did sterling work as she helped each class with their cooking.
