Weʼre raising £200 to fit out a discontinued bus that we are turning into our school library bus.

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.
The Community Learning Bus is a project developed through our community links of the Parents Teachers and Friends of the school. They have put forward monies raised by fund raising i.e. cake sales; discos so that we can actually buy the Bus. The money we are asking for is to try and fit it out with new furniture new books and an outside space (decking).The Learning Bus is needed because the school's existing library/learning area is in a corridor and does not offer the flexibility or excitement that we wanted to offer. Also the area was inside and not visible to the community - the new Bus will be outside in full view to all that pass us to walk to work or getting on with life. We aim to showcase our learning bus to all those people that currently work with us (as Governors or Helpers) and to those who normally just walk by.
It will make things better for the community as it will both brighten up the space and bring young and old together through a shared love of learning and reading. Through a provision of decking it will extend the area to the outside and create two areas within one project. Those that use it, can access the learning & reading materials and chose to sit inside (most of the original seating will be left) or outside in the garden.
Its a lovely project that will bring happiness and education for all our students - we have done lots to get ownership of the bus now BUT we now need to love it with your help.
