  • DT Laser Cutter
  • Stage Piano
  • Numerous Author visits
  • Table tennis tables
  • LRC books for Accelerated reader

 Company Matched Giving/Funding Schemes

We now have 5 parents who Match Fund for the PSA, thank you so much. It would be fantastic if we could double that amount this year, it really does make a difference.

Many companies offer their employees the chance to take part in a matched funding scheme or will give their chosen charity a donation. The company will provide additional funding to a good cause (usually on a £ for £ basis up to a maximum amount). Argos, Barclays, Boots, Citigroup, Ford, HBOS, J Sainsbury, KPMG, Legal & General, RBS, Tesco, Thames Water and Unilever are just a few companies that offer Matched Funding.

Generally, the employee must have been involved in the fundraising event as a volunteer . The amount offered will vary depending on the organisation and conditions may apply. Throughout the year we sell refreshments at various events, school discos, Christmas Fayre & Priest Hill. We also have the disco ticket sales, raffle and various stalls at Christmas.

The PSA is a registered Charity (Charity Number 312016). If you require further information, or work for a company that offers Matched Funding, please get in touch. GlynPSA@Outlook.com.

Any donated uniform items will be made available to buy and could make a real difference to other parents and carers.

Glyn PSA is on eBay

eBay for Charity is an easy way for buyers and sellers on eBay.co.uk to support their favourite charities including Glyn SchoolPSA. Buyers can shop for items knowing they're supporting a good cause. Sellers, whether they're individuals or businesses, can donate a percentage from any sale to Glyn and add Gift Aid to their donations. In addition, all eBay for Charity items will qualify for a fee credit on basic insertion and final value fees equal to the percentage donated.

It is really easy to use, when listing an item go via 'Advanced Sell' on the eBay home page; the charity box is just below where you set your price. Just choose Glyn School PSA and the percentage you want to donate. 3 weeks after your item sells PayPal will collect the donation from you.

If you would like further information  please email the PSA at GlynPSA@Outlook.com


Foreign coins and old coins and banknotes

We are asking for money you will not miss.

You can help without really having to put your hand in your pocket by simply sorting out any old foreign notes and coins left over from holidays and business trips.

Any old British or Irish coins and notes can also help. Even old decimal coins or farthings, 1d pennies, three pence, six pence, shillings and crowns are welcome.

So seek out those old Spanish Pesetas, American Dollars, and German Marks etc., literally anything, even obsolete currency can help. Foreign coins and small banknotes cannot be exchanged at any British bank or Bureau de Change.

So please take a moment to donate these coins and banknotes and Cash4Coins will buy it all and turn it into a useful donation for Glyn.

Please return your donations to Student Reception.


PSA Business Sponsorships
