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.


In collaboration with the Lunchbowl Network, four teachers from Coombe Hill Junior School (Mr Held, Ms Ransom, Mrs Metcalfe and Mr Arman) are visiting a township in Nairobi, Kenya to support and develop teaching and learning in a kindergarten that supports some of the neediest and disadvantaged children in the local community. We will be travelling at the end of the summer term, on the 14th July for two weeks.

We will be travelling to Kibera, Nairobi with a range of creative teaching resources, equipment and ideas and will be training and further supporting the teachers who are educating the children in the Kindergarten.

With your help, we can make the most of this exciting opportunity!

Here are some of the resources we've already been able to purchase!

Hilary Metcalfe, Chris Arman, Amanda Ransom & Patrick Held
