Weʼre raising £2,000 to help fund a new library at Carfield School
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.
Carfield Primary school wants to reestablish their library. Libraries can be where children become hooked on reading, inspired and whisked away on their imagination. At the moment the Carfield School library is an underused storage and quiet room with only couple of dusty shelves without many books. We'd like it to be a space of inspiration and tranquillity in an otherwise very busy school.
I know there seem to be many grander and more noble causes in the world but a love of reading can literaturely change their lives (like what I did there?) The school has been severely hit by funding cuts and could really do with a break! Please help us make a lasting impact in the education of the 600 pupils at Carfield Primary School.
The concept is to create an indoor woodland, somewhere the pupils can travel to a different place, a place of imagination and mystery. To this end we have designed an interior which uses real birch trees to form reading circles and cosy dens amongst the shelves of books. Now we need to raise the money to fund it's construction.
The project is being funded by Carfield Friends, a registered charity (charity no. 1183465) with a large lump sum of support from Dark Peak Gear (www.darkpeakgear.com) and the rest from public donations. Dark Peak are a small local company who design and manufacture feather down jackets. They are generously supporting me as well as homeless charities by donating a jacket for every sale they make.
I'm going to do a sponsored climb attempting to climb 1450m (the height of Ben Nevis) at Stanage Edge in the Peaks on 10th August. This will be climbed in a single day and without ropes, no climb will be repeated, which equates to around 120 seperate routes in 1 day. If people would like to sponsor me please give generously.

About the fundraiser
I am a father, partner, climber and designer. I believe in local action to have agency over the place we live and to regain control over our lives & futures. Governments will only provide some of what we need, corporations certainly won't do much so the rest is up to us!
