Help us to buy a new HGS minibus!

Project by Harrogate Grammar School PTA

The Harrogate Grammar School PTA, registered charity 508520, invites you to support the school fundraising campaign this year for a new minibus.

A new minibus costs around £40,000 and this is money the school just doesn’t have.


Our minibuses are so important to our students and school life. Not only do they take children to sporting fixtures from Newcastle to London, but they pick up children from home when they live in rural areas without a bus service. Every week they take children to Forest Upper School and outdoor facilities in the Dales. Every year they make visits to University Open days. They enable children to take part in regional competitions and they are key to the booming Duke of Edinburgh award scheme at HGS. The minibuses are also important in the local community helping local football clubs and the sea cadets. 

In a typical year a minibus covers 12,000 miles, enriching the experience of children from all year groups and without them, school life would be severely impacted.


We are reaching out to our school community to ask for your support through one of the following:  

  • Make a donation today.  Our aim is to raise £12,000 through a crowd fundraiser - £1 for every mile the bus travels. Every £1 goes towards our total, so if you can help, we would really appreciate it. Just click the donate button!
  • Support a PTA event. PTA events will be held throughout the year, all of which contribute to the fund. If you bought a ticket in the Christmas raffle this kick started the fund with £1,300 and if you came to the quiz, this topped it up by £2,000. A massive thanks to you all. 
  • Spread the word. Share our HGS Marvellous Minibus Fundraising Campaign on your social media pages and tell the Harrogate area to get behind us! The more people we reach, the more support we will get.
  • Local businesses. Reaching out to any contacts you may have that will help with our campaign, whether that be for a sponsorship opportunity, or match funding. We will give you a shout out!
  • Fundraise for us. If you want to run your own fundraiser – maybe a sponsored activity or similar – use the 'contact project' button to let us know. Setting up your own page only takes a few minutes and you won’t need any bank details. Just a fun idea!

We ask you to please support our school fundraising campaign.
