Gimme Shelter –– Strong Wooden Playground Shelters
We did it
On 14th January 2021 we successfully raised £3,000 with 88 supporters in 42 days

We need strong wooden shelters and fun play/learning kit in our playgrounds. Somewhere dry to eat snacks and lunches will be great too!

New stretch target

Amazingly, we've raised our minimum! Now we take it to the MAX. The maximum funding will give us enough to provide all 5 playgrounds with weatherproof shelters.

We love our school. We love our city. But we've got two problems.


We learn better if we can stay warm and dry outdoors.

  • Glasgow has a LOT of rain. It's keeping our dear green place very green, but it's making our outdoor learning, lunch and playtimes wet and miserable. 

We need a lasting fix for outdoors.

  • Covid-19 means we are outside more than ever. But even before Covid we would get soaking wet while outside learning, playing and eating our packed lunches. 

WE NEED STRONG WOODEN PLAYGROUND SHELTERS, so we can be warm, dry and happy.

We're fundraising to get shelters and play kit for as many playgrounds at Hyndland Primary as we can afford. From the 'Toppy' to P1, we want sheltered spaces for play, learning, and just hanging out in.

Big or small, your donation will 100% go to making our playgrounds better not wetter.
