Weʼre raising £495 to help fund a new minibus for Red Gates School

Croydon, Surrey
17 days to go

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.


Red Gates School provides education for children with severe learning difficulties and autism aged from 4-11 years.

With the current climate of financial uncertainty, together with reducing grants and budgets from the local authorities the school's Charitable side, Friends of Red Gates, raise funds go towards extra equipment, play items, school trips, Christmas presents etc.

The school has expanded several classes over the last four years, two classes in the last year, and we need to raise funds for a new minibus in order that more classes can get out on school trips and into the community.

In order to help raise funds for the school, I will be throwing myself out of a perfectly good aircraft, plummetting to the ground and, hopefully, walking away with a massive smile on my face!

Working in a special needs school is a 'marmite' job - you either love it or hate It! I love it. People ask why I left my very well paid job as a Conveyancing Executive to work at Red Gates School; one word, REWARDING! It was the best career move I made.
