Volunteering

Volunteer to Help at School and PPA Events

Volunteering could be as simple as sparing a half hour or so to serve drinks at an event or just by sharing ideas or skills. The refreshment service we provide at school and PPA events is a key fundraiser plus it is a popular service for parents and guests attending everything from plays to concerts. The service eats up manpower and we are always keen to grow our pool of volunteers - maybe you could help?

We want to make it as easy as possible to volunteer, so we use an efficient and seriously straightforward online system called Doodle to schedule the volunteering. Firstly though, we need to know if we can call on you for help and that we have your correct email address. Last year we used School Gateway to ask all parents for their consent to receive emails from us to help at forthcoming events.  If you missed out on doing this in 2021 please contact PAVolunteers@patesgs.org to have your email address added to our database (or have it removed if you are no longer able to offer your help). We will put you on the mailing list – if you can’t help out at a specific event it doesn’t matter – it’s just good to know you’re there and willing to help us! Thank you in anticipation of your support.
