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.


We are so blessed with stunning views of the Stroud Valleys here at Callowell. Since 1969, we have welcomed many visitors - from Princess Anne to Bobby Robson: Olympic and professional athletes to Baronesses and MPs! Many Circus animals frequented our adjacent field in the 1970s and more recently Callowell has buzzed with performances, presentations, displays, charity events, tournaments, sports, exercise and even wedding receptions! Callowell really has seen it all - from helicopter landings to hot air balloon landings - even mobile climbing walls and caves!

"What a lovely view!" A common phrase over the years......equally as common as the follow up comment... "If only your field was flat!"

Well - we are going to make it happen! At least, a small section of it. We do not want to change our unrivalled view - just make a small section level enough for the children to enjoy better quality activities - on grass! If we have any funds left, these will be used for grounds repairs and maintenance - even if we only have enough left for a box of grass seed! Nothing will be taken for granted...

We really hope you can help us - whatever you can spare is truly appreciated by our school community. Whether you can help or not...thank you for reading our story...

Wayne and the entire Callowell Team

    Happy Friday everyone! This weekend we are back to work on some of the uneven areas. The weather has not really helped with the seeding but at least we have all had some sunshine to enjoy! Thanks for your support and please help us spread the word as we move towards our final target. Many Thanks, Callowell Team :-)
