Friends of Thornden School would like to install a couple of outdoor table tennis tables for use by School pupils and the wider community

New stretch target

With £750, we can set up one table - with £1500 we can do the two tables we hope to have - twice as much fun for the kids and our community!

Twice a week...

Two lunchtimes a week, Thornden School sports hall is filled with table tennis tables and loads of secondary pupils of all ages pile in to play. There's a big box of bats and balls to use and anyone can turn up. It's so popular that there is often not enough space for everyone who would like a go. 365 days a year!

For some time now there has been a real desire to get a couple of outdoor table tennis tables for Thornden so that the school's 1400 students can potentially play every day rather than waiting till the club session. 

A site has been identified near the tennis courts which would mean that the local community would also have access to the tables outside school hours. 

Where will the money go?

Our bid for £750 will fund a good quality outdoor table tennis table (though we plan to have a couple)  as well as some brightly coloured balls! Some ground work needs to be done to level the site (which the school and the PTA are prepared to fund) but any surplus money would go to this.

Who are we?

Friends of Thornden School- aka FOTS -are Thornden's PTA. We are a tiny team but we work really hard to provide the extras that we believe make an education at Thornden such a special one. Our funds currently go to a wide range of Thornden projects ranging from  Young Carers through to Forest School, so funds raised here will release us to be able to target our charity's limited resources elsewhere. 

Please help us to create something fantastic which will benefit so many in our local community. 

Thank you!

Let's make 'Table Tennis at Thornden School- 365 days a year!' happen
