£1,615raised of £1,500 target by 81 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,615 to help develop the outdoor learning environment for the reception and year 1 children at Milverton Community Primary School.

    Milverton, Taunton, UK
    Funded on Tuesday, 28th August 2018

    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.


    Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon < 24 hours!!

    Our three peaks team is made up of parents (Hattie & Ian Winter, Helen Jessep, Hannah Lawrie, Anna & Barney Kyle) at Milverton School who are passionate about early years but also one of our lovely reception class teachers is taking part- Mrs Lewis!

    The MSA do a fabulous job at the school of raising funds that can be spent on initiatives that benefit all children within the school. However, on this occasion we would love to raise some money specifically to help develop the reception and class 1's outdoor learning environment area to ensure they can fully access the cirriculum in the outdoors. Although we are situated on lovely grounds the KS1 play area is currently quite limited.

    This outdoor space is essential in supporting the development of our children's physical and social skills, exploring the world around them and also learning to take risks and solve problems. It is where children can fully express themselves, make noise, make a mess, run, jump, hide and enjoy learning about the natural world through play!

    As a group of friends we value our health and happiness. We are not mountaineers, or regular partakers in sporting challenges, but we love the outdoors, and each other’s company... so we thought what a great 'outdoor' challenge to motivate our lovely local community to sponsor us to help improve our early years outdoor provision.

    Please help us to reach our target and we promise to try our best to reach the summit of the three quickly as we can!!

    NB: As a group we have chosen to raise money for our community via this crowdfunding page. However, we also set up a just giving page to raise money for the Dorset and Somerset Ambulance Service. Therefore if you would prefer to support this charity instead please follow the link below.

    We welcome any donation ( small or large) and thank you for supporting us in our mammoth climbs....

      Hi everyone, It is getting close now! Last week the team did close to 34 km so we are feeling positive. Just doing a few shorter steeper walks this week before setting off for Scotland at the end of next week. A huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far and all your kind messages of support. It is very much appreciated. If anyone else has been thinking of sponsoring us please don't forget. We will be focusing on it throughout the challenge! Thank you again. The Milverton Mountaineers
