Friends of St Lawrence

The Friends of St Lawrence Primary School raise funds through social and fundraising events.  The money raised by The Friends is spent in consultation with the school using the school development plan to help inform us where the greatest needs are.

If you would like to donate on a monthly basis please
see the  form below for more information.

The Giving Machine
The Giving Machine is a simple way of raising funds for our school and doesn’t cost you a penny.
All you need to do is go to the Giving Machine website and register your details, selecting St Lawrence Primary School, Effingham as your beneficiary.
Then, every time you shop on-line, just go to the Giving Machine website first and then select your favourite on-line shop (Amazon, M&S, Tesco, Argos and lots more) and shop as normal. 
The school receives a percentage of what you spend but it doesn’t cost you anything at all.
There are no catches – they won’t pass on your details to any other organisations and it doesn’t cost you more to do your shopping – there’s really no reason not to do it! You can even download the Giving Machine toolbar as a reminder (it sits just below your normal browser and doesn’t interfere with it at all).
