Introduction

Croeso! Welcome! This Newsletter has been written to give you an insight as to what Ffrindiau Panteg is about and what meetings and events we have going on over the next few months.

The purpose of Ffrindiau Panteg is to support the school and the pupils of the school. This will be done in line with the aims of the school.

At present the trustees of Ffrindiau Panteg are Chairperson Lisa Bowen, Secretary Clare Weston and Treasurer Melanie Tudball. To be able to carry out the purpose of Ffrindiau Panteg the trustees need to raise funds, receive grants and donations, apply funds and cooperate and support other charities with similar purposes. However this cannot be done without the help and support of you!

Ffrindiau Panteg, where possible will hold general monthly meetings in term time that will start at 3.00pm. All parents, guardians and community members are eligible to attend. At these meetings we discuss what we can do to raise funds, how, when, where and what we need etc.... we have an agenda and minutes are also taken. These can be seen at anytime on the Ffrindiau Panteg Facebook page or alternatively you can ask any of the trustees for copies.

We have a few that regularly attend meetings however; it would be great to see more. Fresh faces and ideas are always more than welcome but I do appreciate it is not always possible for people to take time off work or arrange childcare etc... so if there are any ideas you would like to share or topics that you feel need to be discussed then by all means contact one of the trustees who will add them to the agenda on your behalf.

 

The Giving Machine

To raise extra funds we have joined The Giving Machine. This is a website that allows schools and charities to join free of charge. It enables us to raise funds easily, quickly and in the comfort of our own home. How? For those of us who do online shopping, can do this but at the same time knowing that we are raising money for our child school.

How?

1. Log on to www.thegivingmachine.co.uk

2. Join as a Giver and select Ysgol Panteg to receive the donations.

3. Before you shop log on (as above) and select the store you want to shop at (420 to choose from Asda, Tesco, Next, ebay etc, etc, etc, .....) this will take you directly to their page

This will not cost any extra to you. Online shops pay millions in sales commissions every year to other websites for helping them sell their products and services. The Giving Machine is a not for profit company that enables you to generate these commissions and convert them into free donations for the causes of your choice (Ysgol Panteg) at no extra cost to you.

Many Thanks

Lisa
