We are pleased to announce we now have a just giving page which will allow us to raise money virtually - https://www.justgiving.com/fo-nevillroadsch
This page is to raise donations for both schools, as you know our fund raising this year will look completely different than it ever has before especially without the Summer and possibly Christmas fairs not being able to take place. These events are our biggest fund raising times and we raise potentially thousands each year at each fair alone.
Without events like these and things like the discos we won't be able to support the schools as much as they need at a time when their need is greater than ever. We understand this is a really tough time for families but if you could donate what you can, the cost of a raffle ticket you'd normally buy at a fair or a hot dog at a disco this would make a really big difference to our schools in the months ahead.
As always we thank you for your support and community spirit during these very different difficult times we find ourselves in.
here are currently 3 ways to raise money for the school while shopping that costs you nothing extra-
0.5% of your purchases from Amazon is given to Friends of Nevill Roads Schools

Friends of Nevill Road Schools (PTA)
Friends of Nevill Road Schools is the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) for both Nevill Road Infant and Junior schools.
Each year the PTA raises thousands of pounds that are spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities.
What does the PTA do
The PTA organises many fundraising events and activities throughout the school year including:
- Christmas Fair
- Summer Fair
- Coffee mornings
- Sponsored activities
- And much more
The PTA is entirely voluntary and relies on support from all parents to make these events, and therefore our fundraising, a success. We are always looking for new volunteers and fresh fundraising ideas and welcome yours. Whether you attend every meeting or simply help out once or twice throughout the year, all help is very welcome.
- Make a difference, raising funds for your child’s school is worthwhile and rewarding.
- Find out more about our school.
- Get experience, develop skills and make new friends.
- Have fun!! It really can be great fun helping with fundraising events. Whether it’s helping excited children meet Santa in the Grotto or having wet sponges thrown at you at the Summer Fair.
Find out about all events and meetings via our facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/FriendsofNevillRoad/
