About this cause
We are the Parents Association for Hurst Primary School. Our role is to contribute to the improvement and quality of school life for all. Fundraising is a major part of our PA activities, we provide a varied annual set of events which ultimately give us the ability to pay for things outside of the school's budget. We have funded many things like playground equipment and new books for the library. Alongside raising money we also like to give back to the community with foodbank donations. Our PA provides a great way to build the whole school community, including links with the wider society, all of which benefits the school and offers a positive influence within the local area. It is our children and the way that we school and raise them that will become the communities of the future.
How this cause brings people in the community together
It is important for our children to understand what a community is, so we want to show them how a community can come together to create something special and beneficial for everyone. Our project cannot be achieved by the PA’s fundraising events alone, we will need support from local builders, tradesmen, parents and volunteers as well as donations and help from the Co-op Local Community Fund.
