How To Donate
The single most important way you can support the PTA is by setting up Regular Giving. This can be done by a standing order with your bank or better yet, by Payroll Giving via your employer - who even match your donations. Regular Giving means the PTA has a better sense of how much money it can expect to receive each month, and how much needs to come from other fundraising activities.
To donate directly to the PTA please use the following details:
Account name: Hampden Gurney PTA
Sort code: 20-69-17
Account Number: 73842630
Many companies offer their employees the chance to boost their fundraising efforts by matching the money they raise for the PTA charity. This means that we could double the amount of funds available to support our school.
Did you know that your employer may:
Match your financial donations
Match your fundraising activities
Give you volunteer days
Donate old laptops or office equipment
Provide prizes for charity raffles and auctions.
In 2022, Hampden Gurney PTA benefited from c£6,000 from the employers of just 4 parents!

2nd Hand Uniform
Donating unwanted items of uniform gives clothes a second (or third or fourth!) lease of life as well as raising funds for the PTA. Please ensure they are clean and still in a wearable condition.
If you are a UK tax payer you can boost your regular giving, or any donations for that matter, by completing and returning our Gift Aid declaration form. In doing this you enable the PTA to claim back a whopping additional 25% of your donations from the government. Its a no-brainer!
Parents can now access their favourite online shops through a tailored Hampden Gurney portal-based on a ‘Shop and Give’ fund raising model. Simply put...you shop, they give!
The scheme is powered by TheGivingMachine (TGM), a not-for-profit organisation. When you buy online via TheGivingMachine, a sales commission is received from the participating shop. 75% of this is converted into a donation on your behalf and sent to Hampden Gurney Primary School. 25% administration charge is retained by TGM.
This service is free to you, the shopper and giver. You’ll find more than 250 different shops at TGM including all your favourite high street names such as Amazon, Argos, John Lewis and others.
The philosophy behind the ‘Shop and Give’ model is to give a little often. So, get shopping and giving!
