‘The Ilkley Carnival committee donated £2,000 towards new cookery equipment’


‘Following the development of a new cooking area, the PTA was asked for funds towards kitchen appliances, cupboards, baking essentials, tables and chairs. We began by running a uiz night, an auction of promises, a bingo event, Christmas fair and discos, but still needed more! Parents couldnt uite help us reach our goal, and fundraising was in danger of losing its label of being ‘fun’! This is where the team at the Ilkley Carnival


committee stepped in. The carnival is run with the purpose of putting funds back into the community  worthy causes can reuest a cut of the prots. I attended a meeting and explained that the school was suffering from a lack of funding. The committee were amazed that our budget had been so badly cut. Other schools submitted similar reuests, so the prot was divided between us, giving our school a much- needed £2,000 boost. We now have lots of baking euipment in the


skills room, which we look forward to showing our donors. Don’t underestimate the support that’s available within your community!’ Angela O’Hearne, PTA Chair, All Saints’ CofE School, Ilkley, West Yorkshire (317 pupils)


‘We smashed our crowdfunding target, raising £2,800 to buy 3D-printing resources’


‘Our progressive DT department is aware of the need to furnish pupils with the latest technology. With a limited budget we have to get creative to nance new pieces of software or euipment. We set ourselves a target of raising £2,000 for


a resource kit that would allow us to run an after-school 3D-printing club. Mr Ralph, Head of DT, set up our crowdfunding page, providing photos and video footage to help us promote our campaign. We uploaded images of our current 3D printers and videoed our students describing how the new resources would benet their learning. We were advised to keep our campaign short,


so allocated two weeks to raise our target. We promoted our project to parents through newsletters and social media, and included rewards for those who donated certain amounts. For £20, donors would receive a scanned head and shoulders model of themselves and a scanning session with a student. A £30 donation earned them a 3D-printed model of our school emblem, as well as a 3D sele! This was a great way for supporters to see the technology in action, especially since it’s not widely accessible. We were dubious about running our campaign for only a fortnight, but this ended up being the

perfect length of time. Not only did we reach our £2,000 target, but we raised another £800 on top! I would recommend the use of social media to


promote any crowdfunding project. The support from the parents and our local community has certainly created a feel-good factor at our school.’ indsey edgate, Marketing Ofcer, The Forest School, Winnersh, Wokingham (1,176 pupils)
