Crowdfunding For Year R & KS1 Outdoor Learning Area

‘Friends of Hamble Primary School’ has BIG plans for an outdoor learning area at Hamble Primary School and we need your help!  As a parent-led fundraising volunteer group, we often rely on our community to support initiatives and as a local business there are lots of ways you could get involved. We’d really appreciate it if you would read on to find out more about our ambitious 2015 vision.
 
WHAT’S HAPPENING?
We’re raising money to transform the outdoor area next to our Year R classrooms. Our vision for this area includes remodelling 1/3 of an acre of the school grounds into an enriched outdoor classroom environment, complete with a mud kitchen, cycle track, bug hotel, sandpit, den-making … everything we need to enable our children to get outside, get stuck in, and do the things children love to do whilst learning along the way.

After four years of a lot of effort, discos and cake sales we’re proud to have already raised £10,000 of our £25,000 target. As a local business, could you help us raise the remaining funds so that the children don’t have to wait another four years before the kids can have their outdoor classroom?
 
YES! WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?
Financial support – big or small – would be truly amazing. £10 would buy Seed Trays, Propagators, Jumbo Scoops or Outdoor Chalk, £1,000 would buy a large storage shed, and amounts in between could fund anything from pulleys and buckets to planters or a sandpit.
 
We do appreciate that not everyone can support us financially. If your business is not able to make a financial donation, would you help spread the word instead?
 

  • Circulate this email to your employees who may be able to offer their time to help clear, build, paint, etc.
  • Forward this email to another company who think may be able to help in some way
  • Share our initiative on FaceBook by clicking http://tinyurl.com/FOSFBSHARE
  • Retweet on Twitter by clicking http://tinyurl.com/FOSTWEET

 
Or, maybe your business is ideally suited to providing goods or services instead? Anything from timber supplies or paint to outdoor chalk – helping us piece together our vision would be quite simply, awesome.
 
WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
Foremost, we hope that supporting this initiative will give satisfaction that you’ve helped a community initiative that will make an enormous difference to our school children today and for many generations to come.
 
We will also have “sponsored by” / “kindly donated by” plaques displayed prominently by the new outdoor area.  Year in, year out, morning and afternoon, hoards of parents will congregate beside this sign, waiting to drop off or collect their children. Your name would also appear on the Friends of Hamble Primary School website plus we’re planning a big media push at launch – all companies will be mentioned, and you can advertise your support via your own marketing channels. (And not forgetting the tax relief available on charitable donations means your accountant shouldn’t grumble either!)
