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.


This is what the children in Reception are faced with every day...

For years now the Reception class at John Henry Newman Academy in Littlemore has had no play equipment since the old equipment was condemned and removed because it was old and unsafe. The children are at a huge disadvantage educationally since a lot of their learning is done through play and they are really limited by their outdoor learning environment.

We have quotes for sorting out the area, digging out the old dangerous concrete and metal that was left behind from the old equipment, astroturfing and building the new play equipment, but we're still a long way off being able to afford to do it. We desperately want to get the playground sorted out so that the children at this school have the best possible foundation to their education and start a positive and fun journey into learning!

    Thanks to money we've managed to get through some grants and fundraising events we now only need to raise just under £5000 - which means we've now raised 8% through this page! Well done all, we've still a little way to go so keep sharing and plugging the cause as much as you can!

I am a mother of 2 children at John Henry Newman Academy and feel pasisonately that we need to make the learning environment suitable for the children there - starting with the reception playground that has been neglected for so long.
