Here at St Andrew’s in Weymouth we pride ourselves on being a caring and supportive community striving to provide a full and varied level of activities for our children. We firmly believe encouraging children to be physically active at break times really helps improve their concentration levels when they return to the classroom. There are some underutilised grass banks in the playground which we are desperate to use with a series of Trim Trail Outdoor Play Equipment. Our vision of optimum playground time comes at a price above our normal school budget. So we are reaching out to you, our supporters, to help us achieve our vision for your children by launching a £6,000 crowdfunding appeal.
Playground equipment supports physical development allowing children to use their imaginations and role play, builds on coordination and encourages teamwork.
The reality of school funding today means it is difficult to find the funds from our day-to-day budget but we are determined to fund this project.
Therefore we are seeking to raise £6,000 by crowdfunding to help make this inspirational project a reality so we need your help to make it happen! “I’m thrilled to be leading this exciting project in getting a new Trim Trail installed in the side playground. This will really enhance our children’s outdoor learning experience,” says Lucy Rose, Project Champion.
So why crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is a great way to hit a fundraising target through a group of people all coming together to put funds into the same pot and encouraging others to do the same.
The larger the group or ‘crowd’ formed, the more money we raise so the key to any crowdfunding appeal is getting the message out there via all of our networks.
Please help us to make this possible by passing on the appeal details on your own social media network to family, friends and your other contacts to help spread our message. Every single donation helps and is gratefully received.

Thank you for your support. We truly appreciate the gift and it will really make a difference to our school.
