Fundraising

Thanks to the ongoing support of Pembury Parents and our other supporters, we’ve been able to increase the amount we’ve been able to raise each year. The tables below are an up to date view of what is raised at each event and how these contribute to our overall cumulative total.

NB. Our fundraising activities include selling raffle tickets (before and at events) and lottery tickets through the external My School Lottery website. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PSA DOES NOT USE OR ACCEPT PAYPAL TO TAKE PAYMENT FOR THESE ITEMS.
