    Weʼve raised £3,094 to Fund a platform swing for our children in wheelchairs.

    Funded on Tuesday, 4th August 2020

    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.


    Hello and Welcome to my fundraising page

    My name is Mary and I'm a Yoga Instructor and a proud supporter of James Rennie Special School in Cumbria. Throughout the C19 Pandemic I'll be delivering LIVE classes daily from Monday to Friday at 6pm for FREE in the hope that you will donate funds towards our dream! We've already raised over £1,500 which is a staggering amount and I thank all of you who have donated.

    James Rennie School is a wonderful school for 150 children with Severe and Profound Disabilities. We are desperately in need of specialist outdoor equipment. We would love to purchase and install a platform swing like the one you see above so that our children in wheelchairs could join their friends and enjoy the simple experience of going onto a swing; which is something that we have all done and enjoyed and simply take for granted! Without this equipment, they can only watch and never take part. Please help me to give these children at least one of the childhood experiences that every child should have access to! As you can imagine, purchasing the swing is one thing, installing it is another and also has a huge cost! Please continue to donate to ensure that we can make this happen!

    Thank you for your support - it really is priceless x

    To me there is no picture so beautiful as smiling bright-eyed, happy children; no music so sweet as their clear and ringing laughter.

      Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! We've raised an amazing amount of money so far! However we can always do more! Purchasing the swing is one thing, installing it is another and comes at great expense. Please continue to give if you can, let's make this happen... for the children. Love and Light M xxx
