Friends of Banovallum

Banovallum School has had a Parent Teachers Association since the school opened in 1963. It became a registered charity in 2004, and is known as “The Friends of Banovallum School”. In 2013 we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the school.

As parents/carers of children attending the school, we are all automatically part of The Friends of Banovallum School – and this also extends to grandparents, friends & ex-parents/pupils.

There is no application form required and no joining fee. Our aim is to raise funds for the school to use to advance the education of the pupils.

The funds are used in many ways to benefit the children, including subsidising school trips, purchasing items not provided by the Local Authority, and “luxuries” for the school.

Whilst we hope our enjoyable social events will continue to be supported, a number of parents and friends of the school have found that they cannot always make it to events.

Therefore, we would like to introduce you to a different method of fundraising.

Monthly ‘Gift Aid’ donation

Making a small donation by a standing order from your bank not only helps provide a steady flow of funds needed by the school, but if you are a UK tax payer it also allows us to claim back the tax on the donations. This substantially increases the amount raised without costing you a penny more. That means if you were to donate £2 a month, we could actually receive £30 over the year instead of £24.

The minimum donation is £2 per month but if you would like to give more, please feel free to do so.

If you have any questions please contact any committee member, or our “Gift Aid Expert” Heather Walton.

When you have completed the attached form, please send it to “The Friends of Banovallum School” via the school and we will do the rest.

Many thanks for considering this method of support.

Committee for 2015/16 are:

Name Role
Dawn Atkinson Chair
Siobhan Hoyle Vice Chair
Treasurer Heather Walton
