    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.


    We are working with a local school where the children need support 'bridging the gap' between a structured reading scheme and free reading. It has been observed that once they complete the current scheme they are then choosing the wrong books i.e- books that are too challenging for them.
    We plan to introduce a scheme that provides a selection of genres that the children will enjoy whilst also improving their reading skills.
    To do this we plan to buy the school new books that are currently trending for the younger generations. We also would like to provide an outside book area so that the children have the opportunity to read during playtime and lunchtime.
    Celebrating children's success is vital and therefore we plan to build a small bridge which can be used in assemblies once a child has completed our 'bridge plus' scheme.

    To raise the money we have a lot of ideas planned such as a 'readathon' with the children in the school, cake sales and also we will be walking from Bognor Regis pier to Brighton pier (a 9 hour walk!)

    We will post updates on here so that you can see how we are getting along.

    Thank you for any donations!

      Hi everyone! Thank you so much for the donations so far! WE SURVIVED THE 27 mile walk to Brighton from Bognor!! Here is the photo evidence (Brighton was very dark by the time we got there) Also it is safe to say that it was SO much tougher than we thought it would be! Donations will make our aches and pain so much more worth it ;) xxx
