WHO ARE WE?
Trinity Academy Eppleby Forcett and Middleton Tyas is set in rural North Yorkshire on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. The Friends of Trinity Academy Eppleby Forcett and Middleton Tyas are a group of parents with children of primary age who are dedicated to ensuring that our children have the best start in life, a healthy attitude to sport and access to a safe environment to play it all year round.
We are also committed to ensuring that our local community will also benefit from this project. Our Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) will be open to everyone.
The money we raise from this Crowdfunding project will go directly into the resurfacing and upgrading of the MUGA.
HOW MUCH DO WE NEED?
The project will cost £50,000. The Friends have already secured £24,000 of funding which is 50% of what we need. We have done this with the support of our Governors, donations and lots and lots of fun fundraising events. We are still fundraising through all the traditional hands-on methods - school film nights, Bingo nights, Discos, Christmas and Summer Fairs and lots more. We are also applying for grants from other funders. With your generosity we can reach our final goal and make the upgrade a reality.
COMMUNITY COHESION - FITNESS FOR ALL
Trinity Academy EFMT works hard to include the local community in school life. The new MUGA will have an all-weather surface and be marked out for lots of different sports: tennis, football, hockey and netball. We hope that local sports groups and individuals will come and use the facility and, as it will also have disabled access, we hope that many more groups will take advantage of our wonderful sports facility.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
At present the MUGA is only used on dry days - not easy in North Yorkshire! The newly resurfaced MUGA will mean that all pupils will have access to a safe environment to play multiple sports all year round. It will make a considerable difference to the health and well being of every pupil in our school and open up the opportunity to play sport to neighbours and the wider community outside school.
