Parent Council Fundraising

Stoneyhill’s Parent Council regularly hold fundraising events for the school – every penny raised directly benefits the pupils of Stoneyhill.  Please support your school by attending events or donating what and when you can.

We are always looking for fresh ideas and would be delighted to hear from you.  Please feel free to drop us an email: parent or via our Facebook page:  Stoneyhill PS Parent Council.

Upcoming Events

Fundraising events for school year 2019/20 were agreed at the first meeting of the school year and we will be discussing updates to that at each meeting.  Thank you to everyone for all your suggestions for events – and keep your ideas coming!

Fundraising events have been postponed until further notice.


Past events

Snowman Drive, Christmas Hamper Raffle and 2020 School Calendar, thank you very much to everyone to supported this fundraising

Halloween School Disco for all pupils, Tuesday 29 October 2019 – a great time was had by all

Family Beetle Drive, Thursday 21 November 2019 – a regular event in our fundraising calendar, lots of fun and a christmas boost to parent council funds

Our School Summer Fayre on Saturday 18th May 2019 was a great success and a lot of fun was had, despite the wet weather.  Thank you to all who helped, donated and joined in on the day – the Fayre is a big team effort to support our school and its pupils, and very worthwhile – £1,600 was raised – not bad for a couple of hours work!

Beetle Drive, 8 November 2018 – there was a packed room at our most recent fundraiser.  Great fun had by all and a fantastic £300 was raised.  Thank you to everyone for coming out and to all who donated to the raffle and kids chocolate tombola.

Summer Fayre, 19 May 2018 – out biggest fundraiser of the year was a beautiful day and a great success.  Much fun was had and we raised £1,500 which will go towards supporting Stoneyhill pupils.  Thank you to everyone for coming along and to those who gave up their time to help make it such a success.

Christmas Fun – the parent council supports many of the fun festive activities enjoyed by Stoneyhill pupils, providing the food for class parties, paying for a pantomime company to perform for the whole school, and providing a christmas treat for everyone on the last day of school.  To fundraise to provide these, we held a successful Snowman Drive on 16 November, held a raffle for 7 Christmas Hampers and sold 2018 School Calendars.  In addition, every pupil made a christmas bauble, which were sold at the school show performance.  Thank you very much to everyone who donated and gave up some of their time to make this happen for our children.

The School Summer Fayre took place on 3 June 2017.  The sun shone and a great time was had by all, raising approx £2,500 for our school.  This year was particularly special as it included an exhibition to celebrate the school’s 20th anniversary.  Great feedback received and thank you to all who made the event possible.

Our recent Easter-themed Bunny Drive was great fun and raised over £200 for school funds.

All 2017 school calendars were sold, raising over £1000.  Thank you to everyone who bought one and to those involved in creating them.

The Christmas Shopping Evening on Thursday 17 November was a great success: lots of Christmas Cheer with mulled wine, mince pies, a good few Christmas gifts purchased and maybe few treats too.  We raised over £200 for school funds, well done everyone

Summer Fayre, Saturday 28 May 2016

The highlight of the school year from a social and fundraising perspective!  This year’s Fayre was a great success – we raised money for the school, the sun shone and  – most importantly – everyone had a great time.

Thank you to everyone who donated their time, home baking, toys, books or garden supplies.  This year, unsold books were donated to Reading is Braw to fill their pop-up libraries; and unsold toys were donated to children from Syria to welcome them to their new homes in East Lothian.
