Houghton School Helpers
Registered charity number 702696
HSH formed in October 2012 as a revised group of parents who recognised the necessity for a fundraising group to support the school. A new committee was formed in July 2021.
How we raise money
Throughout the year we raise money in various ways, including:
- Autumn fayre
- Christmas Tree Festival
- Annual quiz night
- Donut, cookie and ice lolly sales
- Amazon Smile
- Easy fundraising
How we spend the money we raise
The HSH funds are spent on the ‘extras’ that are not provided by the school’s budget, thus making our children’s learning experiences so much more fulfilling and exciting.
To date we have fundraised for a new playhouse for Foundation Stage and 14 laptops. We have also given individual classes amounts to spend on anything they choose.
How we get information to you

Company matched giving
We would very much like to take advantage of this scheme, so if you think that your employer has a matched giving scheme already in operation, we would be delighted to hear from you!
How you can get involved
If you would like to be more involved you can volunteer to be a Committee Member or to help out on an ad-hoc basis at events.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to any member of the committee at school or during events.
