Welcome to Hoddlesden St. Paul's PTFA homepage. Here you will find information about the PTFA and how you can support us. We hope you will find this information useful but as always if you have any queries please to not hesitate to contact us via school.
The PTFA organise many fund raising events for school such as the Christmas and Summer Fairs, Chocolate Bingo and Clothing collections. Due to our fundraising we have funded boards for the playgrounds, bibles for our year 6 leavers, reading books and many other items for the children at St Paul's. We hope to continue to provide additional funds to school with your support. The PTFA funds help to provide those little extras that enhance children's learning and lives in school.
All parents with children in the school automatically become members of our PTFA. It is entirely up to our parents how much input they have. If you wish to know more, contact the school.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the parents, children and friends of St. Paul's for your fantastic support so far! Without this we would not be able to continue raising funds.
How can you help?
The success of the PTFA depends entirely on the support of all parents, staff, friends and families of St. Paul's. We greatly appreciate any assistance. This can be anything from a little time spent helping out as a volunteer for an hour or two at an event, to simply coming along to events with friends and family or by joining the PTFA committee.

Share your fund raising ideas with us, we are always open to new ideas and welcome any suggestions from an idea for a stall at the Christmas or Summer Fair or suggestions for a new event.

Donations play a vital role in our fundraising efforts. This includes donations of unwanted clothes for Bag2School collections, raffle prizes, tombola prizes or toys for the Christmas and Summer Fairs. Any donations are always much appreciated and gratefully received.
