How you can donate
It’s great fun getting involved with WPSA events to raise money for our school, but if commitments prevent you from taking a hands-on approach, you can still contribute to vital funds needed to purchase extra equipment and resources. Alternatively, you could enlist the support of friends or relatives to any of the schemes below.
easyfundraising offers an opportunity to raise money for Westbury Park School at no extra cost to you. Whenever you make online purchases from participating stores (including Amazon, John Lewis, Whitestuff, Fat Face, ACHICA, Game, Boden, M&S, Boots, Next, EBay, Sainsburys, Sports Direct, Body Shop) a percentage or your spend will be donated to WPSA. This could be 0.5% to a whopping 30% for some retailers.
It’s really easy to use:
1) Go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk.
2) Click on ‘I want to support a good cause’ and choose Westbury Park Parent School Association (WPSA).
3) Register your name, email address and make your own password.
3) You can either shop through www.easyfundraising.org.uk by choosing the retailer and making your purchase, or you download a plugin for your chrome browser (instructions are on the easyfundraising website). They also now have an app for your phone/iPad/tablet. So instead of going straight to Amazon or eBay just get there through the easyfundraising app and you'll raise funds for the WPSA.
It's just two extra clicks on your online shopping and just for an example up to 7.5% of what you would spend via Groupon will be donated straight to the WPSA !! if you're buying bikes for Christmas - Halfords, Wiggle or Go Outdoors range between 1-3% of your spending. It really is ace.
