Friends of Madeley




We would appreciate parents volunteering their time and experience to support the teaching and learning experience at Madeley. As in previous years we hope to host a number of events, none of which would be possible without the support of our generous parents and carers. We hope also to use these meetings to feed back to you as parents on what we're up to, inviting speakers to support this feedback, which we hope will be of interest to you as a parent. Please do feel free to come along; it's a very informal meeting and brings together parents with children of varying ages.

Dear Parent / Carer

As you know, we are always raising money to improve the school for the pupils.

This year we are raising money to create additional dining / social areas. With this target as our focus we have joined The Giving Machine which will allow you to generate cash donations for the school without it costing you a penny. There are already more than 4,000 schools taking part in this scheme, with the successful schools raising £1,000's every year at no extra cost to parents!

The Giving Machine is a not for profit social enterprise whose sole aim is to raise money for UK schools and charities. Every year, your favourite online shops pay £millions in sales commissions to websites who drive shoppers to them. By shopping via you can ensure that any commission paid on your purchase is converted into a cash donation. The Giving Machine receives the commission and converts 75% of it into cash, the remainder is used to help towards their operating costs. With stores like Amazon, Ebay, M&S, NEXT, Tesco, Sainsbury and John Lewis taking part with hundreds more, you are bound to find what you want from your favourite shops at The Giving Machine.

You can join to become a Giver by visiting entering your name,
e-mail address and postcode and selecting our school as your chosen beneficiary. Then, every time you shop online, logon to The Giving Machine before you shop and you will make free cash donations with every purchase you make. It doesn't cost any extra and you do not have to make special purchase to qualify. You will receive e-mails from The Giving Machine thanking you for your support and letting you know when the school receives a payment. Apart from helping us for free, the benefits of becoming a Giver include exclusive special offers from the online retailers and access to free fun giveaways and competitions.

It really is as simple as that. Please ensure you don't miss this opportunity to give while you are shopping and help spread the word to raise as much as we can from this amazing scheme. Your help will make a difference to our school.

Many thanks for your support.

Yours sincerely
