Easy Fundraising Reminder


Don't forget that you can help raise money for Aldington Primary School while you shop.  Easyfundraising is quick and simple and costs you nothing extra.  There is now a donation reminder that you can download to your computer; this gives you a reminder when you visit a participating retailer's website and if you make an eligible purchase you will be helping to raise money for the school.

Please click here for more information: Donation Reminder Information

Easy Fundraising



Many of you will be aware that you have been able to raise money for the School just by doing your online shopping through the Spend and Raise website.  This site has recently changed its name to Easy Fundraising and can be accessed through the link below.  

Easy Fundraising will still offer the same wide range of online retailers with various levels of commission available to the School.  Please pass this information on to friends and family so they can also use the site to do any online shopping which will give us the opportunity to use any commission raised to purchase new school equipment. Happy Shopping!







Power up to Recycle Challenge



Help us to win rewards for our School by recycling as many batteries as possible.  This initiative will run from 3rd September 2014 to 30th January 2015.  The school that collects the most batteries will win £500 to spend on school supplies, with second and third place winning £100. Please bring in any batteries you have and we will see how many we can collect!
