Patterdale School Support Group is our very own charity, set up and run by all of the parents of the pupils at the school. Every parent is a part of this group which (in normal times) meets once a term to plan events and raise funds for the school throughout the year. Events are often social activities for the whole community, although recently we have only been able to run online raffles and the 200 Club due to Covid19 restrictions.
We try to raise in excess of £10,000 a year, every year, to help support our School. This incredible achievement is only made possible through the very generous support both of our parents and the local community, for which we are very, very grateful.
If you’d like to help out or get involved please contact us via the School.
Our usual List of Annual Fundraising Events includes:
March/April - School Big Breakfast
May - Hog Roast/BBQ
June - Ullswater Country Fair
July - Patterdale Parish Boundary Walk
October - Hodgson Brothers Relay
In addition we are very grateful to all our parents and the many local businesses who generously support us every year in our fund raising. Thank you also to the residents of Hartsop who generously donate the proceeds from their car park.
THE 200 CLUB
We also run the 200 Club every year between April and March, in which numbers are sold for £10 each and we hold a monthly draw to see which of the 200 or so members win the first prize (£30), second prize (£20) or third prize (£10). The winners are put on our PSSG Facebook page, so if you've joined then do remember to check!
Please visit the Support Group's Facebook page (see above) for the latest 200 Club winners. Please see the Word doc below for full list of this year's previous winners.
