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.


Throughout 2018-2019 we are undertaking a series of challenges to help raise money to buy a Philips HeartStart® HS1 semi-automatic defibrillator for our school. Last year Ruth and Sarah started us off by running the Leeds 10k. Our next challenge is for a team of 20 staff members to complete the Yorkshire 3 Peaks!

When a heart stops, you're up against the clock. Without action, survival rates fall by 10% every minute, yet using a defibrillator within three minutes can improve a person's chance of survival by as much as 70%. Within the UK, however, there just aren't enough of them and there are currently no defibrillators close to our school.

By donating to this cause you will help the school and the community purchase this life-saving piece of equipment and it's a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our values #respect #perseverance #cooperation #responsibility.

Too many people aren't given a chance because there isn't a defibrillator nearby - so please donate and check by soon to find out about our next challenge!
