Friends of Blenheim
Our Friends of Blenheim group is overseen by Miss L. Riley, Associate Assistant Headteacher, who oversees collaboration. Various fundraising activities are undertaken each year by our Friends including our 200 club and termly mufti days along with developing partnerships and funds through sponsorship.
Each year we sell 200 club tickets at £11 each or £1 per month from September to July. Each ticket entitles you to one number (you are welcome to buy multiple tickets) and each month 3 numbers are drawn. Fifty per cent of proceeds go towards the monthly prize money and the other fifty per cent go to the Friends. The prize value is dependent on the number of tickets that are sold.
If you would like to buy tickets part way through the year you will only be charged for the number of months remaining in the calendar year.
Fundraising through internet searches and internet shopping
The Friends of Blenheim also fundraise through easyfundraising and easysearch. Through easysearch we earn money for every time that you do an internet search and through easyfundraising we earn money when you do your online shopping through certain online stores.
To start raising money all you have to do is visit the websites below, register and select Blenheim as your cause. Remember to visit the sites before you shop or search so that all of your activity rasies funds. They also provide a very handy toolbar add on which will remind you to activate your donation whenever you visit a website that is linked with easyfundraising.
Fundraising for charity
Our annual RAG Week is a firm fixture in our Fundraising Calendar and takes place in November each year. Each Year Group also has the opportunity to fundraise for local and National charities.
Our School Fund has been established to provide funds for ‘extras’ to add to the quality of life for students at Blenheim High School over and above the normal educational programme.
The School Fund is more important than ever. Without your contribution, we will be unable to run many of our activities.
All the staff and students value your contribution.
Each family contributes £25 a year. Please log on to ParentPay and select the service School Fund 2016-17 to make your payment. Please could you also complete the Payment Form. Links to both are below. There is also a section on the Payment Form, if you are a tax payer, to give your permission for us to collect Gift Aid on your donation.
