Weʼre raising £1,000,000 to fund a state of the art green school building which will help protect the planet for our children

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.
Our current building (below) was built as a temporary structure in the 1960s; it has done well to last over half a century and we are grateful it has nurtured our children throughout all that time. It now needs over £1 million spending on it just to keep it going for the next two years.
We have been working with an eco friendly company who specialise in building schools for the future which positively impact on the planet and children's health, wellbeing and academic achievement. Please see our cover image and images below for a taste of what we are planning.
We want to raise money to give our children the school they deserve, a school building which:
*has improved light and air quality resulting in increased productivity and wellbeing
*generates energy and has a zero carbon footprint
*teaches children about saving the planet, responsible consumerism and being a global citizen because they live and experience those ideals every day
School budgets barely cover the essentials, therefore, we have to do something truly extraordinary to manifest and create the environments we think our children deserve.
We actually need £6million+ to fully fund the school building but we are hoping to gain support from a number of benefactors. Any donations over our £1million target will still go towards the school building, fixtures and fittings.
Please help us to create a truly unique school which will help us develop young people who will value, nurture and protect our planet preserving it for generations to come. Every little helps. Thank you.
