We did it
On 31st March 2017 we successfully raised £255 with 11 supporters in 14 days

On Wednesday 15th March an all Girls Team from Afon Taf High School came 2nd in the Formula 1 Engineering Competition out of 39 Teams.  They are now in the final Competition taking place in 2 weeks time at Silverstone.  If they win this round of the competition they will be off to Texas, USA.

It's an amazing achievement for all the Girls and teachers and the school involved.  They have worked tirelessly over the last 4 years entering the competition in 2015 it was the Bloodhound SSC, in 2016 it was Formula 1 Rookie Class but this year was the Professional Class and they came 2nd overall and actually won the fastest car race.   These girls attend Engineering class almost every day during their lunch hour.  The dedication they show is fantastic and as parents and teachers we are all extremely proud of their achievement.

We are looking to raise money initially to get them accommodation at Silverstone for all the girls to be able to attend. 

Any extra money we can raise will go to future children entering the competition at the school.

These girls deserve all the encouragement we can give them which is why I'm setting up this page to raise money for their trip in 2 weeks time.

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £55 million for bright ideas and good causes.
