Nearly New Uniform - Save yourself a fortune and raise funds for school!
The PPA runs a nearly new uniform service selling items at various PPA events throughout the year and additionally through a nearly new uniform shop. The shop will be open on selective Fridays between 2 pm - 4 pm and on Saturday mornings this academic year. Opening dates during the Autumn half term are as follows:
Saturday 25th September 10 - 12 noon
Friday 8th October 2-4 pm
Saturday 6th November 10 - 12 noon
Friday 19th November 2-4 pm
Saturday 4th December 10-12
The shop is situated in the Bungalow which is the first building on the left as you go through the main entrance gates. When the shop is open there will be an A-board sign on the pathway outside. Payment can be made by cash or card.
Donations of clean second-hand uniform and sports equipment are always much appreciated, especially any Canterbury kit. Please ask your son or daughter to hand in any items into the blue bin marked Uniform Donations found in the Student Entrance at school or bring them with you if you visit the shop. Further information about school uniform can be found here.
Buy Online and Raise Funds for Pate's
We would therefore be really grateful if you could use either of the following when you are shopping online:
Shop at SmileAmazon at https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/298307-0 and donations will be made to Pate's Grammar School Parents' Association on eligible purchases - at no cost to you. When users shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation contributes 0.5 percent of the net purchase price of eligible purchases to the charity of your choice. Purchases do need to be made through AmazonSmile and not amazon.co.uk or the Amazon app in order for donations to be made. Amazon.co.uk and Amazon app account holders continue to use the same account when using AmazonSmile so all account settings remain the same
Shop with Easyfundraising http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/patesgs/ to register and shop with over 2000 well known retailers like Amazon, John Lewis, Argos, M&S, Boden, eBay and many more. Whenever you buy something, the retailer makes a donation to Pate's Grammar School. You can even save money with special offers and voucher codes!
You can also raise money for the school simply by using easysearch instead of Google or any other search engine. We've given Pate's Grammar School - Cheltenham its own search page - set it as your homepage; use it every time you search the web and watch funds to Pate’s mount up – see http://patesgs.easysearch.org.uk.
Matchfunding - your employer can match fund online fundraising events too!
Our online Christmas Raffle was our only fundraising event in the Autumn Term and we set ourselves an ambitious target to raise £10,000 for the school! What we raise can be substantially boosted by employers who can match fund the event - we would be really grateful if you could ask your employer if they are willing to do this (please let us know if your employer can be included on the list of those who participate in the matched giving / funding scheme below). Please click on the letter below for further details about the match funding scheme:
