     Autumn 2011                                                                          Registered Charity No 1140400

                                     Thank you for supporting your school PTA

The Trinity PTA hope you like this new style newsletter which will bring you up to date with our planned fund raising Events
up to January 2012.

Last year was very successful, in February we became a Registered Charity which means we now have more options
when fund raising for our school. As a charity the PTA were able to provide iPad covers, whilst Mr Manderson claimed
through a charity 10 iPads for the school! We were also able to get Boots to match £244 towards the new Hockey kit from
a race night event in June.

Do you have any idea(s) which you think would be a good fund raiser?
Does your employer operate matched giving scheme?
We would love to hear from you if you do. (Contact details can be found at end of this newsletter).
