New stretch target
Thank you to everyone who has helped us reach our target! With this money we will be able to install more than half the panels. We are now aiming for £20000 - the more we raise, the more panels we will be able to install this summer!
Calling all Climate Crusaders!
We are a group of passionate students and parents who understand, now, more than ever the need the switch to renewable energy. To do our part in cutting greenhouse gas emissions we want to install a 30kW array of solar panels on the roof of our school. This could cut our CO2 emissions by up to 13.1 tonnes a year. We have been told, however, that this will cost us £45,000, money the school simply doesn't have. All fundraising efforts by the school are currently focused on covering the deficit in core curriculum costs, forcing us students to take our appeal elsewhere. This is where you come in. A pledge or donation of £375 could buy an entire solar panel, estimated to save the school 109kg of CO2 annually. However any donation, big or small, would be greatly appreciated.
The Ashden Trust has generously offered to match all donations up to £5000 so all Crowdfunder pledges up to that amount will be doubled.
If we can raise a total of £15,000 in the next month, we can go ahead with installing the first lot of panels next term.
The more money we can raise now - up to £45000 - the more panels we can put up next term!
Thank you for taking the time to visit our crowdfunder, we hope you can help us in any way you can!
All donations to the school are eligible for gift aid.
