Lenzie Academy PTA are a small and friendly group of parents and teachers who work hard organising fundraising events to raise much needed funds for all our children at Lenzie Academy. All the money raised from these events goes directly to the school.
We need you to help us. You can do this in many different ways; come along to a meeting, send in ideas, be an event helper, make a donation, and come to as many of our events as possible. We will send out requests for help, events and meeting notices throughout the year. We know that you can’t help every time, but if everyone helps a little bit we can make such a difference to all our children. Please just do what you can.
You can find out how the money we’ve raised has been spent on our “How we spend” page.

5 easy ways to support the PTA.

The 500 Club is a way you could donate regularly to the PTA, and potentially win one of 2 cash prizes every month in the draw. This is our main fundraising mechanism and we’d love you to join up. Donate between £2 and £10 by monthly standing order to be in with a chance to win.
Shop at the Coop
When you use your free membership card at the Coop when shopping you can not only earn points for yourself, but you can also help contribute to the PTA funds.
Save your drinks cans
Save your aluminium drinks cans for us, we aim to set up a collection point in the school grounds and can raise £100’s of pounds this way.
Raffle & Tombola Donations
Every so often we request raffle prizes to be donated to help raise funds. The kids can either drop them in to the PI room, or adults can drop them in to the school office. Please help by donating when you can.
Join the PTA
WE NEED YOUR HELP! We only have a very small number of parents who regularly attend our meetings and help at events so we urgently need new PTA members. We meet monthly, for 1 hour, to discuss how to raise money and how to spend it. It is good fun, we are a friendly bunch and everyone is welcome. So please join us and get involved? Please get in touch either by sending an email to us at email@example.com or PM/DM us on Facebook at Lenzie Academy PTA.g page.
All donations bit or small are greatly appreciated, however, we know how difficult things are for everyone right now, so please only donate if you can.
You can donate directly to the PTA using our PayPal Donate button below. Donations can be made using a PayPal account, or via a Credit or Debit card.
Our funds have provided a wide variety of items. The purchase of which would not have been possible without the PTA’s fundraising efforts.
