    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    St Nicholas is a special school for pupils aged 4-19 with severe, profound and complex learning needs. It is a friendly and welcoming place where everyone is encouraged to do their best and work towards achieving their full potential. From the age of 13, pupils are invited to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, working towards achieving the Gold Award.

    This is an opportunity for them to learn key life skills, including independent living away from home and teamwork, along with other more specific skills such as camping, map reading and hill walking.

    The Residential section of the Gold Award, requires pupils to live independently for 5-days, in an unfamiliar environment, meeting and sharing experiences with people they have not met before. We offer pupils the opportunity to complete this overseas, for many their first experience of travel abroad. In addition, this provides pupils with an chance to learn a new language and understand a different culture.

    To raise money and awareness for this project Andy, Karen, Kimberley and Dawn are cycling 320 miles from Whitstable to Amsterdam. If you wish to help fund this once in a lifetime opportunity for students of St Nicholas School, please donate.
