We have made fantastic progress with our fundraising efforts for our new playground. Since the beginning in the year we have raised an amazing £63000.
We have finished the ground work, fencing and grassed area and will soon install the fitness equipment and in-ground trampoline. Our next step is to raise more funds so that we can create a soft and hard games area and a cycle path.
We are very much indebted to all of the individuals and groups who have been supporting us and these include: 7 Staff Members past and present (Three Peaks Challenge) £3400, Heather Garrod and partner Mike who raised over £2000 running the Berlin Marathon, The East Grinstead Rugby Football Club – £3000, The Wooden Spoon Society – £20000 and the Clothworkers’ Company – £25000.
In addition, two very generous spirited individuals (one staff, one family) had birthday celebrations and asked for donations to be made to the school instead of receiving gifts. This brought us an additional £750.
