Fundraising coordinator Marika from Firbank Grammar School’s co-ed Sandringham campus enjoyed coordinating the tea towel fundraising project for the school’s Early Learning Centre classes this year and her efforts were rewarded with a final total of just under $800 raised!

We asked Marika how she went about selling the tea towels and she shared with us her valuable experience…”I actually designed the flyer myself and did reminder flyers and posters everywhere in the ELC as well as emailing the families. I loved the idea as suggested by your company to offer bulk buys, this really worked and most people went for the three tea towel option which was great. I had options of a single tea towel, three tea towels and five. I put the sample tea towel in the foyer so people could check it out! We used an online payment method through TryBooking which made the process very smooth, clean and quick. I ran the fundraiser myself and I just sold to the families in ELC and mentioned in the flyers that Christmas is coming up etc so I think some people may have bought more as some were already asking for the tea towels ASAP as they wanted to send them to family. It was all a very smooth process so a big Thank You!”

The money raised will go towards new cameras for the centre to be used to document their frequent bush excursions…happy snapping Firbank!
