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.

State schools are struggling financially. Increasing operational costs are not being adequately provided for by government, yet we as parents still expect the best from our schools. Most schools are having to cut back on all but those facilities required to deliver basic educational outcomes.
Every year for the past 6 years the Downs School has held a 10km walk along the Ridgeway as a core fixture in their fundraising calendar. Over the 6 years this event has raised £105000, contributing to a new minibus, new astroturf fields, outdoor playground areas and table tennis tables for the students. It is these and other facilities that make the Downs School an outstanding school in West Berkshire.
This year on 22nd September, Maya, my eldest daughter is walking in her first year at secondary school. Please support her by donating any amount through this page. Your donation will help fund a portfolio of projects for the coming school year, all aimed at providing the best education and learning environment for 1200 + students.

Thanks to all who contributed to Maya's effort. Imagine the amount raised if each student came back with £65!!! There are 1200 students in her school. Unfortunately not all do, so your contribution means that much more in that context.
