Fundraising success

We estimate that around 400


children will be able to enjoy the clamberstack every year – and we are working with a local Clevedon-based company, Signet Play, to ensure the equipment will be durable, safe and last for many years. We have raised £14,000 towards


the clamberstack through many school events – and hope to raise the remaining £9,000 before the end of 2022. The first fundraiser was a 10k ‘run’, encouraging pupils to run, walk, hop, scoot or find any way to complete the distance over a period of a few weeks. Another event was a school dance. Karen Davies from Love To Dance supports our children and kindly gave her time one evening to compile a dance class for the parents to come to.


One of our most successful


fundraising activities, though, was a weekend scarecrow hunt, which took place in June and was a joint initiative with the infant school PTA. The event was a way of involving the whole school community in our campaign. We listed over 70 storybook


heroes, and invited families to choose or add their own character around our catchment area. Families were then responsible for creating and making their scarecrow character – and these included Buzz Lightyear, The Enormous Crocodile and Matilda. We used the InvestMyCommunity


crowdfunding platform – this allowed us to gather donations electronically and meant the event


paying a set fee, meant people could offer as much or as little as they were able to, ensuring the event was inclusive for all. A QR code was attached to each scarecrow so that families from outside the school who wanted to join the event could easily donate and be part of the fun. Participants were able to download a list of the scarecrows that they could tick off as they spotted them. We were fortunate enough to have


a beautiful sunny weekend. With the hunt spreading across the local area, people could spend the weekend ticking off the scarecrows they spotted. Some enjoyed searching for them on their bikes and scooters, stopping for an ice cream en route. One of our grandparents even set up a plant sale next to her ‘Mr Potato’ scarecrow – and additions of this kind meant extra money coming in. In total, we received donations of


£906, with just over £154 in Gift Aid, which will be split between both infant and junior campaigns. We also created many memories of a fun-filled community weekend.’ Jodie Godfrey, Friends of Christ Church Juniors, Downend, Bristol
