Fundraising & Events

Who are we?

Fundraising & Events is a sub-committee of the Parent Council that works together to organise and facilitate events that enrich our children’s educational experiences and build a stronger community. We aim to raise funds to supplement the school’s funding to provide much-needed resources, and activities, and to develop a close connection between school, home, and community, by encouraging parental involvement and supporting the school, by providing resources, specialist equipment, developing outside spaces, or providing funds for educational events.

We operate as the Victoria Primary Charitable Trust (VPCT), a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) with the registered charity number SC045994 set up in 2015 by the Victoria Primary Parent Council to support Victoria Primary School by raising money to fund projects to support and improve the life and work of the school. The Trust’s aim is to provide resources supplementary to Local Authority funding to advance the educational experiences of children who attend Victoria Primary School and Early Learning and Childcare. We also work closely with the Heart of Newhaven Charity to support our local community.

Meetings

We usually host a meeting usually on the last Tuesday of each month, during which parents can enjoy school updates, sneak peeks into upcoming events, discuss ways to raise much-needed funds for the school and more!
