About the Friends of Rickling School (PTA) Committee
The Friends of Rickling School is a voluntary association of parents and teachers setup to support the school and the pupils and provide a link between parents and staff. We raise funds for equipment , learning resources, school trips and activities. Popular events run and supported by the Friends include the Christmas Fayre, Christmas entertainment, Summer Fete, discos, quizzes, cake stalls as well as the Quendon and Rickling Fun Run.
We have a committee that meet regularly and meetings are advertised in the school newsletter and PTA website. All are welcome to come along. You can also volunteer to be a part of the events team which involves helping at events when possible.
COMPANY MATCHED FUNDING
Matched Funding is where Companies or Businesses pledge to donate to charity an amount of money that an Employee donates or fundraises for us. This money can be raised by either a parent or family member manning a stall at an event such as the Christmas Fayre or Summer Fete.
Many Companies operate this Scheme, including Banks,Supermarkets,Insurance Companies, Utility Companies, Phone Companies and many more. For a full list of Companies please see the link below
If you think your employer has such a scheme in operation, then please inform the PTA. It can really give our fundraising a huge boost.
