Weʼre raising £1,000 to help buy 60 sets of durable, waterproof outdoor clothes (hooded jackets with elasticated cuffs and trousers with elasticated waistbands).
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.

“A Forest School is an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning.”
The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences. By participating in engaging, motivating and achievable tasks and activities in a woodland environment each child has an opportunity to develop intrinsic motivation, sound emotional and social skills. These, through self awareness can be developed to reach personal potential.
Forest Schools has demonstrated success with children of all ages who visit the same local woodlands on a regular basis and through play, who have the opportunity to learn about the natural environment, how to handle risks and most importantly to use their own initiative to solve problems and co-operate with others. Forest School programmes run throughout the year, for about 36 weeks, going to the woods in all weathers (except for high winds). Children use full sized tools, play, learn boundaries of behaviour; both physical and social, establish and grow in confidence, self-esteem and become self-motivated.
So Forest Schools will aim to develop:
Good social communication skills
A positive mental attitude, self-esteem and confidence
