Fundraising at Stringer

The Dorothy Stringer School Fund is a registered charity – 1071616

The Dorothy Stringer School Fund exists to raise money to enrich the experiences of every student who comes to the school. We are proud of the huge range of extra-curricular activities that we offer and it is largely thanks to the enormous amount of support and time our staff give without charge to deliver these activities. But there are costs to all for which we receive no contribution from our statutory funding. We can only continue to deliver this enriched experience with your support.

All money donated to the Dorothy Stringer School fund will be used to support Dorothy Stringer students beyond their classroom learning the fund has supported:

  • School visits and trips
  • After school activities – for example providing individual specialist equipment
  • Speakers and inspirational visitors
  • Opportunities for students to gain new skills and confidence
  • Building on school facilities

The way you raise funds with Amazon is different to raising with other easyfundraising retailers.

You’ll raise money for your charity when you shop, but your donation will be handled by AmazonSmile instead of easyfundraising. 

You will need to register with AmazonSmile to raise donations this way.

We are delighted to that Dorothy Stringer School has partnered with Smarter Uniforms, Brighton & Hove’s innovative school-uniform reuse project.  
Smarter Uniforms collects uniform students have outgrown or no longer need when they move on from Stringer. The uniform is then sorted, washed and resold back to parents.  
Uniform donations can be left in the Smarter Uniform collection box in Dorothy Stringer’s reception.  
Working with Smarter Uniform we will save parents money, protect our planet’s precious resources for our children’s future, and raise important funds for the school. Parents and carers can order through the Smarter Uniforms website
