Did you know that many big companies such as HSBC, Tesco and M&S offer a match funding scheme to their employees? Under these schemes, employers pledge a sum of money to an employee’s chosen charity based on the amount they have raised. In the past match funding has contributed an extra £2000 to our annual total, but our last parent using the scheme is leaving this year. She assures us that the scheme is a win-win for everyone involved, with the school benefiting from the funds and the charity work looked on favourably in annual appraisals. If you or your partner work for such a company why not find out if they offer the scheme, it really could make a big difference. Please get in touch for more details.
