How can you help?



Do you shop online? If so, you can also help us raise funds, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! You can do your online shopping and support Friends of Mandeville fund without any additional cost to you.


You will need to go to  and register for Mandeville PTA – St Albans.  Once you have registered, you can download the Easyfundraising App or go via the Easyfundraising website, select the retailer you want to shop at and the site will show you the commission the PTA earns from your shopping basket.


We won't know who shopped or what you bought, but we will get a percentage of the costs into our fund. The prices are the same as if you bought "normally" - in fact, there are sometimes special offers that could even save you money! It's easy, so why not help us raise much needed funds.




All uniform needs to be named and stamping your children’s name on everything is a really easy way of doing this! We receive a 30% cashback for all orders placed at Quote AL12LE when checking out.



Direct Donation

Donations can be made directly to Mandeville PTA at any time. There is a payment item on Arbor for donations direct to the Friends of Mandeville bank account. This is a voluntary option for anyone wanting to donate in this way.



Match Funding

A match funding scheme can be adopted by any company no matter how big or small.  Barclays, for example, offers its employees the opportunity to match funds they raise for their chosen charity up to £750 per year.  This is available for three activities a year!  Aviva, in response to feedback from their staff, has introduced a '£Plus' matching scheme.  The scheme gives Aviva employees the chance to receive matched funds for any money raised on behalf of a registered charity of their choice.


Does your workplace have a match funding scheme? Find out whether your time or contributions can stretch even further.  We can assure you that it is not complicated and will cost the you nothing other than some time to talk to your employer.


So, that is a little bit about us!  We would very much like you to get involved so please come and talk to us during Friday Coffee Morning, in the playground or simply leave a message in the school office.  We are a friendly, enthusiastic group who are also interested in making a difference to the extra parts of school life.  


Kind regards,

Kim, Sheila, Ellie and Sam
