Weʼre raising £2,500 to help fund an enrichment room so that children can learn to cook and make cool stuff to enrich their learning experience.

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 wish to convert one of the classrooms into an enrichment room where the school and community groups can run cooking classes and other life skills classes for children from the school and the members of the local community.
Food is a large part of the economy in Scotland and especially in the Scottish Borders where we live and it's important our children grow up understanding food and learning to prepare a range of nutritious meals and snacks. The space will also be fitted so that it can be used for other kinds of creative work such as crafts and technology.
We are a very small school - just 69 pupils - and the Parents and Friends Association has been raising funds for this project for a number of years. So far we've raised almost £8,000 - that's a lot of cake sales, Spring fayres, Christmas raffles and the like. We're now on the last push and need to raise the final £2,500 to help bring this dream to fruition.
The Parents and Friends Association of Coldingham Primary thank you for your interest and support.

Many thanks to everybody who's donated to this cause. We've had some amazing support from local businesses over the past 2 months who've helped push us closer to our total. We're hopeful we can raise the remainder but in the meantime we're starting phase one of the build over the summer holidays to help get things moving before costs rise again. We hope that soon our children and the community will enjoy this fabulous resource. Thanks for all your support so far!
