A fundraising message from the PTA

Blog Header Image Posted on: 24th Mar 2021

Dear Parents/Carers

Firstly, a massive THANK YOU. We've been totally overwhelmed by the response from all of you to our call-out for donations towards outside seating for our children attending the Blue, especially at a time when making the most of the outdoors is becoming so important due to the pandemic.

We are delighted to announce that a request we have put in to extend our fundraiser by one month has been accepted by Aviva who have recognised the overwhelming task which the Blue has had to undertake in rolling out Covid-19 testing for the whole school community over the last few weeks.

For all of your unbelievably generous personal donations, and to all of the local businesses who have given so much, including financial pledges but also free paint and ideas such as sponsoring benches...we send you our huge gratitude. We feel incredibly proud that the Blue has such a wonderful community!

At the time of writing, we've raised £4,200 which includes Gift Aid and a direct donation so we are nearing our goal of £5,000

With the time extension of one more month, you still have the chance to donate. So if it's sitting on your To Do list but you haven't quite got around to it, don't worry: you can pledge today at

Once again, huge thanks, take care and stay safe.
