Friends of Saxmundham Free School

Friends-of-Saxmundham-LogoWhat we do:
As with all PTAs, our aim is to raise funds to provide ‘extras’ for the students. Recent examples of donations would be Transport to the Leavers Ball, Grant towards Tom’s Memorial Garden and the school’s stage lighting.

Our other role is to support the school at functions, Open Evenings etc., which normally involves tea trolley duties and catering!

Help raise money for the school…by shopping!

Did you know that whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising a free donation for Friends of Saxmundham Free School? There are nearly 3,000 retailers including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury’s, who will donate a percentage of the amount you spend to Friends of Saxmundham Free School to say thank you for shopping with them.

It’s really simple, and doesn’t cost you anything.
All you have to do is:
1. Go to
2. Sign up for free
3. Install the Donation Reminder – a very handy reminder that takes seconds to install and ensures you will always make a donation to the Free School. One caution on this, it doesn’t work for Amazon or Ebay. They can be accessed through the normal easyfundraising website.
4. Get shopping – your donations will be collected by easyfundraising and automatically sent to Friends of Saxmundham Free School. It couldn’t be easier!

There are no catches or hidden charges and Friends of Saxmundham Free School will be really grateful for your donations.
