£1,762raised of £1,500 target by 128 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,500 to help with funding for Rathcoole Primary school to carry out basic repairs and upgrades throughout the building.

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.

Story

As many of you may already know there have been a lot of buget cuts throughout Northern Ireland mainly through the education board which is having a terrible effect on many local schools.. unfortunately Rathcoole Primary is struggling with the current cuts in the system and needs much needed funds to carry out basic repairs and upgrades throughout the school.

You may have seen the acting principle Mrs Emma Quinn do an interview on BBC news (Tue 4th Dec) about this current situation and she fears it may lead to the school having to close down due to the lack of funding. Obviously this isn't ideal and would have a terrible effect on our local community and the families whos kids attend the school.

I've decided to set up this page on behalf of the PTFA at the school in the hope that the community and people from surrounding areas can help show this fantastic school some support and help with some basic repairs around the building.

This is an amazing little school, that has seen numbers grow over the past 4/5 years. Mrs Quinn and all the staff at the school have done an amazing job at building this school back up to what it is now and it has even won awards for their work. It would be a shame to see all their hard work go to waste all because of cuts in their funding.

Even a £1 Will help a lot!

Thanks for reading and donating.
Vicky.

    People have been very supportive so I've upped the target to £1500, every penny will be accounted for and all will go towards more repairs within the school as there is quite a lot needing done. Nothing will go to waste. Thank you for your continued support. 🙂

    My husband was born and raised in Rathcoole. These children deserve to have decent facilities to help get them a good education.
