What we have funded
Dear RGS Parents
On behalf of the RGS PA, thank you to all of you who have so far signed up to Easyfundraising.com and Amazon Smile and linked your purchases to the "Royal Grammar School - High Wycombe" cause. We are currently up to 87 parents who have linked to the cause and would be great to get as close to 1000+ as possible. Many of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales continue for another week, along with all the additional purchases we all make leading up to Christmas, it is the perfect time to ask as many of you to join.
We have a goal to raise £15,000 to refurbish the School Science Block and as mentioned in our letter, we would love your help on this as a truly ‘RGS Parent initiative’ - 1,300 individual efforts focused on the goal will guarantee success (please also tell grandparents, relatives and friends about it as well!). If you have not done so yet, please click for Easyfundraising and the link for Amazon Smile. If each parent spends £700 online shopping with the likes of Amazon, John Lewis, Tesco's, M&S, Waitrose, Asda, Ebay (over 3,000 retailers to choose from), we could hit our target. As of today, we have already reached £1,208.18 thanks to many of you supporting the school and it would be really fun if we could announce the target hit either before Xmas or early in the New Year.
It is one of a number of initiatives the PA are involved in and we would welcome all parents to take part in helping RGS be the best it can be for our children.
Thank you for your support
Chair of RGS PA
