How do we organise fundraising at Dalestorth ?

Here at Dalestorth, we want the best for all of our children. This cannot be achieved without the support from you, the parents and carers and the community. We value all the support we receive and try to add FUN in our "FUNdraising". We also raise money for various charity events each year. The first one is always for the Macmillan Coffee Morning in September.

We also support, Children in Need, Comic Relief, Race for Life, Poppy Appeal and the Shoe box project.


FUNdraising events and news 2023 - 2024

So far this academic year - we have organised the following events/fundraising. . .

Macmillan coffee event

Christmas card project

Children in Need


Halloween disco

Poppy appeal

Reverse advent calendar

Film festival

It's only February! - lots more to come!


The latest addition to help our FUNdraising at school is the purchase of a new slush machine.

The children ( and staff ) are very excited, especially about which flavours are in the mix!  We have already had positive feedback on strawberry, blue raspberry, orange and vimto - again lots more to come!  All the flavours are sugar free and vegetarian.

Our slush machine will be used as part of the Friday treat options and also for events, discos and fairs.

Keep checking this space for update on our fundraising events.

Coming soon. . .


Children in Need

Christmas Bubble Fairs

Christmas Disco


Halloween Disco

Both of our Halloween Discos were fantastic fun. The staff found it hard to know which children were behind the masks!  All of the costumes were terrific - as usual - the hall was decorated and the tuck shop had themed items... eyeballs, spiders, slime and skeletons. Both discos ended with our traditional Conga dance devil    Check for some photos soon.


Christmas Cards

Thank you to everyone who purchased Christmas cards, tags, wrapping paper, place mats and mugs from the designs made by your child. This is a FUNdraising activity we do every year and the children enjoy the art sessions - although the first week in September is a little early to be thinking about Christmas for some!


Macmillan Coffee Morning

Last Friday, 23rd September, we held our annual Macmillan event. Cakes were bought by the staff for this event and sold to the children during morning playtime for 50p each. We asked for donations of cakes from our parents and we would like to say thank you to those who supported this. After school, the KS2 playground was busy with people wanting to join this event. The donation pots filled up as the queue for cake, coffee, tea or juice moved along. It was lovely to see lots of families chatting together and supporting this charity by eating delicious cakes! All the money collected through the day will be sent directly to the Macmillan fund. Once we have the final total, we will share on here.

Thank you again.

Our staff here donated cakes for the children to buy in the morning - THANK YOU.  Look at the photos to see the fun we had FUNdraising for Macmillan.

There were lots of activities in school including a bake sale and non-uniform. Each class had to design Pudsey bunting with the winning class getting an extra play time. This year, Lynx won with their incredible and unique design. Well done.


Our knitted Pudsey bears were also raffled off to 15 lucky winners in school so a huge well done to you as well.

A huge thank you for all the fantastic produce donated for our Harvest Festival.  Half of it went to a local church to be distributed amongst the homeless and the remainder of it as usual went to the John Eastwood Hospice.

Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

A very big thank you and well done for putting together 77 Christmas Shoe Boxes containing a whole manner of special Christmas gifts for those children who would otherwise receive nothing. In the photograph we were on 73 boxes, but by the end of the morning after this photograph was taken you had managed 77.  Well done everyone! 

Children in Need

You raised a huge £642 with our dress up day, spotty cake sale, guess how many spots on Pudsey, raffle tickets for knitted Pudsey’s and the duck race!!  In our pictures below, you can spot some of the winners!

Enterprise Sale

During October the children were busy making merchandise for their annual Enterprise Sale. The idea behind Enterprise week is to support the teaching of Financial Education to the children. Each class is given a budget of £30 to purchase resources to make a product to sell. The children’s challenge is then to sell as much of the merchandise as possible and make a profit. The Enterprise Trophy goes to the class who makes the most.

All monies made will be released back to the children for them to decide on purchases to make for their class throughout the year. Last year the children spent their money on all kinds of things from pets, to games and free trips.  This year's class products included:


Kittens - Plants

Lions- & Tigers – Pizzas, Cakes, Friendship Bracelets and Hair Accessories

Bobcat Class – Christmas Decorations & Mashmallow Snowmen

Panther Class- Decorated Tealights, Candy Cane Reindeer and Halloween Jelly

Puma Class – Reindeer Food and Hot Chocolate Spoons

Wildcat Class-Jewellery

Cougar Class-Snowflake Christmas Decorations

Jaguar Class- Christmas Decorations, Wool baubles & Snakes

Leopard Class- Fruit Crumbles


The sale was a great success and the children now have plenty of money in their pots!  Visit our News page and the children's class pages to see photos of the event.

Berundi Bear Picnic Fundraiser

We all enjoyed buying a bear, having a bear biscuit and drink with our friends and in the process raising £160 for Berundi.  Berundi is one of the poorest areas in Africa and for every bear sold it is a brick to build much needed schools.  Schools provide valuable education and way out of poverty.
