Raise ££'s by Having Fun and Getting Everyone Involved! Here at Able Canopies we have very busy looking for ways in which you can raise funds for your school, nursery or pre-school. We have put together an Official PTA Fundraising Pack which is full of fundraising ideas from A right through to Z!

Organising events is definitely a more sociable and fun way to raise those much needed funds. Getting the staff, pupils and parents involved is a great way to bring the community together and make friendships and provides your school or nursery with a good, friendly reputation.
When Fundraising Don't Forget...
When an event that you have put lots of hard work into is not very popular it can be disappointing. That is why we have included a few important issues for you to remember when organising a fundraising event.PR
Where possible always contact your local newspaper and local radio station, hopefully they will mention your event for free or maybe a small fee. Advertising in your local newspaper and radio station is probably the best way to get interest along with sending out information about your event via your school newsletter and asking parents and staff to spread the word. Another way to get interest and generate spectators/visitors is to promote you fundraising event on Facebook – create a fundraising page for your school and regularly update your “likers” about your events, not forgetting to publicly thank all those that took part.Licensing
Licensing is needed for various events including events where you will be selling alcohol. For more information and to find out if you will need licensing for your event please contact your local authority.Insurance
Does your venue have public liability insurance? You will need this, so make sure you check with your insurance if you will be covered before arranging an event.Fun!
Don’t forget the most important thing of all – fundraising is meant to be fun so enjoy yourself and make sure that your spectators and visitors enjoy themselves so they come back for your next event.
