£370raised of £1,000 target by 13 supporters

    Weʼve raised £370 to help towards building a dedicated library for Blakeney CE VA Primary School

    Funded on Monday, 8th October 2018

    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.


    Currently there is no dedicated library space in our school. It is a small village school with a multi purpose hall which is used for book storage, a teaching space, PE lessons, assemblies and dining. This is not a conducive environment for children to relax in for reading, it also creates problems during PE as there are wooden shelves along every wall, the books often get coated in food during lunchtimes. Therefore we are planning to create our very own library as an extension to the school. We are aiming to build a first floor above the toilet area to house a comfortable and quiet space for children to immerse themselves in stories and reignite a love of reading. This also gives us the opportunity to update the existing toilet area and extend the building slightly so we can modernise and make the school more spacious and safer.

    Sam Tattam is the current Senior Teacher at Blakeney Primary School and teaches the KS2 class. He is very passionate about reading and improving the small school to be the best it possibly can be. Emma Fraser is training to be a teacher at the UEA and is a volunteer at the school. They are both going to be walking the Jurassic Coast Challenge on the 21st and 22nd of July, which is 100km from Poole to Bridport. This is a small section of fundraising amongst many other things that the PTFA and the community of Blakeney are doing to get this project underway.

      Dear Sponsors, Thank you all so much for your support. The day was extremely hot and we tried our hardest. We walked for around 13 hours and covered 50km. At this point the heat exhaustion and blisters prevented us from going further, so we drove to the 58km finish line. Day 2 was even hotter so we decided that it was in our best interests not to walk. We are going to be finishing the final 50km during the summer holidays in Cornwall. We are extremely happy with the money raised on here and also close to £100 in cash. Thank you again!
