Lanark Grammar School Fund

The school fund supports students at Lanark Grammar in a wide variety of ways.  It contributes to extracurricular and curricular-enhancing activities by paying entrance fees and providing transport to a diverse range of competitions, as well as supporting the school show and other activities.

The benefits to pupils include increased confidence and motivation; improved attitude towards academic studies; building good relationships with peers and staff; developing teamwork and employability skills; and most importantly… having fun!

We are looking for as much help as possible in raising money for Lanark Grammar School Fund. One way that you can support us is by registering for easyfundraising.  This is a website that will make donations to our school fund and all you have to do is your normal internet shopping.

There are over 3000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline and Sainsbury’s.  The best part… it doesn’t cost you a penny extra!

  1. Head to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/lanarkgrammarschoolfund/ and join for free.
  2. Every time you shop online, go to the easyfundraising website first then find the site you want and start shopping.
  3. After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to the school fund at no extra cost whatsoever; there are no catches or hidden charges.

Thanks in advance for your support!

(Miss C Murray)
