Corporate grant buys new Sports Kits

At Sports Day you may have noticed the smart kits sported by our Y6 Sports Leaders.

We have recently been lucky enough to also acquire two full sets for both Lower School and Upper School teams, that they can wear when representing Wessex in tournaments and matches with other schools.

CGIThese were made possible by a grant from CGI, a global IT consultancy, via an application from one of our parents who works there.

We hugely appreciate any effort that goes into these kind of applications as they can make a big difference to how the rest of our budgets are spent within the school.  Please check with your employers as to whether they run similar charitable schemes.

We would also like to thanks Goyals who gave a generous discount enabling us to purchase 2 full sets of kit.

As well as grants for specific purposes, many employers will also partake in Employee Matched Funding schemes.

Here’s a quote taken from  pta.co.uk website:

‘We were approached by a parent who works for a company offering match funding for their employees – up to £6,000 per year… Her company match funds against the overall amount raised at an event. There was one form to fill in…. This year alone, we have raised an additional £2,900 in match funding for just two events!’
