Weʼre raising £5,000 to help fund a new playground for the lower school pupils at Merefield School in Southport

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.

We can all remember the fun and excitement we all experienced as children during playtime. Think back now how much you loved those times and how different your childhood experiences would have been if you hadn’t had this time.
Most of the pupils at Merefield School often do not have the imagination or physical ability to engage in play without support from adults. Their outdoor play areas are often used as somewhere to go for pupils in distress who need quiet time or space away from others.
In 2016, they had an amazing playground installed for their upper school that included a wheelchair accessible swing, two basket swings, gym equipment, climbing frame and sensory path. Although accessible for all pupils, the transition for lower school pupils to the playground is often too distressing and almost impossible to get them safely to the playground.
It's the school's dream to provide their lower school pupils with a swing, climbing frame and sensory area.
Please help us make this dream come true and provide the Merefield School pupils with what they deserve.
