Ansdell Primary PTFA

Ansdell Primary PTFA is a voluntary organisation that aims to raise money for the school while also bringing parents and teachers together socially. This page is used to update parents on the future plans of the PTFA, to show where the funds we have raised have been spent or allocated, and to provide a diary of forthcoming events.

We couldn’t do any of what we do without volunteers or support from parents, so a huge thank you to everyone who has contributed and helped us in the past. We hope to continue our fundraising success this year and to also make new friends along the way.

We have Charity status which will provide further opportunities to obtain funding.

Spring 2017

The PTFA funded an inspiring school visit from Ben Smith. 

Ben (34) raised over £320,000 for anti-bullying charities Kidscape and Stonewall by completing 401 marathons in 401 days last year. Since completing his challenge Ben has toured primary and secondary schools throughout the UK to raise awareness of bullying. 

When asked by one of the children if he remembered Lytham Hall parkrun, he said:“Lytham Hall parkrun was a deal breaker for me. It was the first run I attempted after my 10 day halt with injury. If I hadn’t have got through that I wouldn’t have been able to complete the challenge.” He also recalled the particular windy conditions of the Blackpool leg of his journey!

Mrs Colligan was thrilled by the visit. She commented: “Ben’s manner with the children was fantastic and the lively question and answer session showed how engaged they all were.”

Inspired by the message of “anything is possible when you put your mind to it,” the children promptly went out to attempt their own marathons at breaktime!
