    Weʼve raised £822 to Raise funds for Scout Road Academy (primary school)

    Mytholmroyd, UK
    Funded on Tuesday, 7th 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.


    I'm running the London Marathon for Scout Road Academy, a community primary school that was recently displaced for almost a year following a landslip risk above the school, many of the children (including my daughter) had already been affected from the 2015 Boxing Day floods. Funds raised will go to purchasing IT provisions and playground equipment for the children.

    As my daughter, Francesca, goes there and the education system gets squeezed more, I didn't think there was a better cause and you can witness at this level, the massive difference fundraising can make to the children.

    As a small registered charity the PTFA have applied for gift aid and as I type I'm unable to claim through the site. If you're kind enough to forward your address however, following any donations, we'll be able to claim 25% retrospectively (assuming you're a UK tax payer). My run is also eligible to secure 25% match funding from work meaning every pound donated becomes £1.50.

    All funds raised will be paid directly to Scout Road PTFA

      En route to London, thank you everyone so far, when the dust has settled and I've hopefully completed next week I'll try and thank individually. Myself and Sarah have around £400 of pledges on the old fashioned paper form so this takes us over £900. If we can organise gift aid and add 25% match funding, £1500 is now within reach. It's beyond our wildest expectations and thanks to your generosity for making it possible.
