Dear Families, 

July/August 2022 – Online Frozen Pies and Savouries Fundraiser

Central Hawkes Bay College are selling delicious Kai Pai Pies and Savouries to help support our school and our PTA.

The funds raised by our school community make a huge difference in enhancing the overall school environment and educational outcomes of all our students.

These pies and savouries are a great addition to the freezer for winter and we really appreciate the assistance it will bring our school community.

How will this fundraiser work?

We have partnered with New Zealand online fundraising company Raise It.  Raise It specialise in working with New Zealand schools and clubs to maximise their fundraising efforts.  We have chosen to run a Kai Pai Pies and Savouries Fundraiser. There is a great range of flavours to choose from, fill your freezer with these yummy award-winning pies and savouries just in time for the colder months.

By running our product sales campaign online, it makes it super easy for everyone - no more door knocking, your family can fundraise from home - no need to worry about handling all that cash and bringing it in.  You simply sign up on the fundraising website, share the link with family and friends and they can arrange to collect their products from you at the end of the fundraiser.

How do I sign up to fundraise online?

Each fundraiser can sign up for their very own web page to send out to friends and family to collect sales. Just go to our Fundraising Hub page at:

  • You will find a link to SETUP YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE

  • If you need any help, email for direct assistance

  • All fundraiser totals update in real time and your supporters can leave you messages of encouragement

  • Those that sign up by Friday 5th August will go in the draw to win some vouchers for the school canteen.

Ideas for promoting/selling:

  • Share your child’s fundraising page around your workplace/colleagues and tell them a date when you will bring their purchases for collection

  • Share the links with your friends

  • Use the links on your fundraising page to share with friends/family via email & social media

  • For family & friends who don’t live locally – offer to give their purchase to a local charity you support

What happens at the end of the fundraiser?

At the end of the fundraising campaign (last day for sales is 21st August) all orders will be compiled, and products will be collected and distributed at the School Hall on Thursday 8th September between 2:30-5.30pm

Before pickup day, each fundraiser will be sent a report (to their registered email) showing all the supporters who have purchased from their fundraising web page and what items/quantities they have purchased.

Thank you for supporting us with this fundraiser.
