We are a small group of parents and other interested parties whose aim is to raise small amounts of money that can be used for the benefit of as wide a range of pupils as possible.
The items that we purchase are extras that otherwise the school would find it difficult to provide and are in addition to what is provided through curriculum areas.
New members are always welcome.
The Giving Machine
You can also help us without any real effort by using the portal “The Giving Machine” for your online shopping.
This is how it works.
• Go to the website www.thegivingmachine.co.uk
• Sign yourself up.
• When asked who you want as your beneficiary choose Northampton School for Girls.
• You can then download an icon to put on your desktop.
• When you want to shop click on the icon, Find the shop you want to purchase your goods from
• Buy your goods in the usual way.
The Friends of NSG will then be credited with a certain amount of commission which is then donated to the school.
Example: Ebay give 10% of their final valuation Fee, A new TV from Comet can give us £12, Amazon also give 2.25% of any purchases. Take a look at which sites are included. There are lots!!
So far we have raised over £700 with 81 givers. Think how much we could raise if just a quarter of the school registered and used!
Collection of CDs and DVDs.
Throughout the year we collect CDs and DVDs which we can then exchange for cash. If you have any of these that you no longer want please leave in Reception who will get them to us.
