125 hours of Nelson PTA Rugby Car Parking Volunteer Slots are Open!

Nelson Families and staff: we need lots of help in our Nelson PTA rugby car park this term- there are international rugby matches at Twickenham every Saturday from 3rd of November to 1st of December!

The money that we raise will benefit ALL Nelson children and families and will pay for school workshops, coach transport, the Christmas party, the Christmas pantomime, the planned school library refurbishment and lots, lots more.

Car park duties are either “meet and greet” to provide a friendly welcome to our customers or showing cars where to park and exit. No experience is needed- just a positive attitude and warm clothing. Feel free to volunteer with other friends and families too! It’s fun and easy and full training and support will be given.

To sign up for your volunteer slots, click on the links below or email the PTA parking team at nelsonprimaryschoolpta@gmail.com with your availability or questions. Even an hour of your time will make a huge difference. Thank you 🙂
