Weʼre raising £500 to To develop an Outdoor Learning program at Walney School

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 nonprofit.

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


On Saturday 13 July 2019 an intrepid group of cyclists from Walney school will ride from Coast to Coast. Starting on Walney Island we will cycle 179-miles to Whitby. This challenging route features several thousand metres of hill climbing including the notorious Tan Hill in North Yorkshire at 528m above sea level.

Two teams of Walney staff will complete the ride.

Team One, made up of Messrs. Corcoran, Peters and Sherrington will ride over two days.

Team Two, Messrs. Barton and Gilbert will complete the whole ride in one day.

We are raising money to fund the development of an Outdoor Learning Program for the young people of our School and the Island community in general.

High quality outdoor learning has been proven to develop:

• Self-awareness, confidence and esteem

• Resilience and adaptability in adverse circumstances

• The ability to identify hazards and risks

• Collaborative-working and communication skills

• Reflective and inquisitive thinking along with problem solving approaches in ‘real’ situations

• Positive physical and mental health

Each year we hold a transition camp for our new year 7 students. The student’s costs are kept to a minimum to give as many students the opportunity to attend as possible. This has really helped with student transition from Primary to Secondary school. We are looking to expand this through the use of our Engagement Centre and create an outdoor learning area within school that will promote all of the points listed above. We have a limited supply of outdoor equipment that includes camping and canoe equipment and several bikes. All of which is well used and in need of repair or replacement. We also have a partially completed indoor climbing wall. We are hoping to raise at least £2000. This would go towards the repair/replacement of existing equipment. It would fund the purchase of new equipment and ensure that the staff leading the program are trained and qualified to the correct standards.
