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.
My daughter has recently started going to Ardrishaig Primary School, and I've been blown away by how amazing the school and the staff are.
I'd like to put some time into raising money so the kids can "Pimp Their Playground". Theres a grassy area just by the new pre school which is relatively large but not safe enough for the children to play on during their breaks. I recently learned at a Parents Council Meeting that it would cost upwards of £2500 to get the area levelled off and then after that it could potentially take the same again to fit the area out with whatever the kids decided they'd like there.
I think it'd also be a nice idea to put a wee path by the pre school fence so its easier for people with mobility issues and prams to get to the P1 area to pick up and drop off their kids.
Its a big job, but we have to start somewhere so thats why I'm setting up this page.
I've started a coffee station in my salon where I supply the coffee, our very generous locals donate home baking and our amazing clients give a donation towards the school. I'll be donating this money on here every month or so but I need to do more....
Its a really nice feeling to give something back to the school that is giving my daughter so much but I can do more with help. If anyone is up for helping me fundraise then please contact me, if you'd like to donate then please do, and if you have the time to join us at the Parents Council Meetings then our next meeting is on Wednesday January 17th at 7pm.
