raised of £1,250 target by 22 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,105 to improve ICT provision at Kirby Primary Academy by purchasing new laptops, tablets and a server.

    Funded on Sunday, 16th April 2017

    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.


    I am one of those detestable people who love their job and where they work. Kirby Primary Academy is a small village primary school where I have now worked for over 2 years.

    This year, one of our priorities has been to develop our ICT provision so that we can provide our children with a deep, engaging Computing curriculum that will set them up for life in the 21st Century. However, these efforts have been stifled by outdated resources and a lack of funds to replace them.

    What we have lacked in money has been more than made up for in the willingness of parents and the local community to support the school. As a result, this year, our PTA has been 'rebooted' with a huge team of wonderful people who have worked tirelessly to raise the money that the school needs. While they are incredibly close to their target, I felt it essential that, as a member of staff who cares just as much about the school, I also play my part in raising money.

    I have been running for around 4 years now, running several half marathons and two marathons (in Berlin and Venice). In six weeks, I will be running my third marathon in the beautiful city of Rotterdam. The training has been going well, but I know that the knowledge that I will now be running to raise funds for the school will give me the extra boost that I will need to get me round the course!

    I have set the target on this page at £400, but I am hoping that this will increase once donations start pouring in. (For my Berlin marathon efforts, £750 was raised for Mind so hopefully this will surpass that amount).

    Please, please, please give generously to help the wonderful children that I have the joy of teaching every day. I look forward to seeing the funds flowing in for this great cause!

      What an overwhelming response from everyone! I ran 13 miles after setting this to go live yesterday and, by the time I'd returned, the totaliser was already just shy of 50%. Today, I logged on to see that a phenomenal £356 had been raised so I've decided to raise the bar to £750. I can't wait to see what a massive impact these funds (along with those already raised by our amazing PTA) will have on the children's learning in computing as we strive to remain 'dedicated to lifelong learning'!
