Raise funds for your PTA with an evening of fun and fashion
“We raised more money per head for our PTA at this event, than from any other, and had loads of fun too.”
PTA Chair Coombe Hill Infants and Donhead School

Why not raise funds for your PTA, and give the school mums a really great night out too?  Do you or other mums throw on the same clothes every day, wear slouchy clothes to hide the saggy bits, wear dull colours to avoid drawing attention to themselves?  Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know how to dress for ourselves so that we feel good in what we wear, to be comfortable and practical, yet stylish, and to gain the boost that often disappears when we have children?

If that sounds too good to be true, imagine offering this to school mums, and raise money for your school too! Just use the link above ‘forward to friends’ to send this to your PTA rep.

My name is Anita Feron Clark. I am a mother of two and a multi award-winning stylist. I present practical, entertaining and interactive evenings full of fantastic colour and styling tips which not only help busy mums and teachers to ‘feel good and look fabulous every day’ without breaking the bank but also raise hundreds of pounds for schools.

It’s a fun night out and appeals to a wide audience (not just fashionistas!) and can also be tailored to meet your needs. Topics I have previously covered include:

  • The best colour and styles for your colouring and body shape
  • How to make sure your wardrobe contains clothes you actually love to wear
  • Styling advice for your personality and lifestyle
  • Looking fabulous regardless of your age – 30, 40 and beyond

My presentation lasts up to two hours, with plenty of audience participation (fun and laughter thrown in).  You provide the venue (your school hall), I bring along all my props and I can help produce a flyer for your event. 
 
How the school benefits

  • Once 13 tickets have been sold, 100% of all further tickets sales goes to PTA funds (£200 fee, and assuming ticket price of £20)
  • Raffle – 100% to PTA.  I donate two raffle prizes worth £195 each, in addition to the school’s prizes
  • Sell drinks and nibbles, with profit going to PTA

My background

I run my own personal styling business, feron clark style, in Kingston-upon-Thames.  I advise on all aspects of personal style (colour, body shape, lifestyle, personality etc.) whether it’s for casual, smart casual or business formal.  I was a lecturer in fashion buying at London College of Fashion, style editor for essence, Surrey’s premier lifestyle magazine and a clothing buyer for two major high street retailers for 12 years. I have won numerous awards as a personal stylist from colour me beautiful
 
I feel passionate about improving and maintaining women’s self-confidence through their personal style and I particularly enjoy the evenings I do at schools.  So if you would like me to come to your school (I’ve presented to over 20 schools already), to show mums how to regain their style mojo, and raise money for the PTA, just use the link above ‘forward to friends’ to send this to the PTA rep.

I’d love to chat with you or them about how to give the mums a great evening and give them a boost, whilst raising all-important funds for the PTA.  So please contact me.

Testimonials from PTA organisers:
 “The style evening with Anita was incredibly easy to organise and proved to be a fun night out for the ladies. It was well received as a new and different fundraising event as an addition to the usual annual favourites.” PTA Chair St. Lukes Primary School

“I have organised four style evenings with Anita for Coombe Hill Infants and Donhead School and all the events have been incredibly successful in raising money. In my experience, it is one of the most lucrative events organised in the school calendar, as with Anita’s professionalism and knowledge, she draws in a crowd and mums are prepared to part with their money for tickets, raffle prizes and drinks. I have only ever had wonderful feedback from the mums – not only do the mums enjoy an evening out, but they go home with great tips and insights, whilst having fun at the same time. And, most importantly, the schools benefit too.” PTA Chair Coombe Hill Infants and Donhead School
