 We are very grateful to all parents, family, friends and staff who come along to support our school throughout the year.

What can parents do to help?

The events each year rely heavily on donations and your support. Without your generosity we cannot go ahead and raise money for the school or put on the events that the kids enjoy. We are always looking for help to run the events as there are only a few of us who are also working so cannot always be around.

Parents can help by asking their employers about this. It may be that your company offer a £ for £ scheme like Barclays or have a community cash scheme available. It is amazing what you can get IF you ask! You might also be able to acquire raffle prizes or items to be auctioned from local businesses you know or contacts that you have. Not all parents are able to attend or help at events so this is another way to do your bit for our school. Please contact us via email

You can join our school lottery and win money for yourself while supporting the school. Each week there is a chance to win the £25000 jackpot and there are other prizes to be won. Please go to and search for BWI to get your tickets and support the school.

You can also earn free money from easyfundraising go to their website and support Bishop Winnington Ingram School and shop via their site to earn free money.

We would like to thank all the parents who have supported our events and a big thanks to our main sponsor, Gibson Honey.
