Playground Bench Prize Draw Fundraiser
We did it
On 22nd July 2021 we successfully raised £735 with 36 supporters in 28 days

Our playground seating needs some updating! These benches will provide lovely areas for the children to sit together at break time.

by Friends of Little Houghton School in Little Houghton, England, United Kingdom

Why are we fundraising?

Due to the lack of normal school fundraising activities being able to take place due to Covid-19, the The Friends of Little Houghton CE Primary School are thinking creatively about how to raise money for our 87 pupils. The funds from this prize draw will help to purchase some fabulous new playground seating for the children to enjoy at break times and also for outdoor class learning. Entrants can pledge to this campaign without entering the prize draw, see T&C for details.

About the prize draw

We are asking for your help to raise some money to brighten up the playground and provide a comfortable area for the children to sit together. The 'buddy bench' also gives children an opportunity to take a seat, so the other children know that they might want someone to talk to or play with. This has been a very popular and successful idea in the past and so it will be great to have a brand new bench for our children starting in September.

The prizes are particularly high quality for this year's fundraising activity so please, dig deep, and share the link with friends and family so that they can help to support the school & be in with a chance of winning too!  See below for further information about the prizes...

About our school

Little Houghton CE Primary School is a village school where every child is viewed as an individual. All children are known to every member of our staff who feel passionate about the children in their care.

The school is an extension of the family community. We focus on how we work together co-operatively and support each other in a safe, happy, caring place with a strong ‘family’ ethos where children are able to learn and develop their skills and talents as individuals.

Who is running this Crowd Fund, and why are we asking for your support?

FOLHS is a small team of parents who voluntarily find ways to fundraise to support the schools vital requirements for learning resources & equipment. Local authority resources are stretched beyond belief due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so it is our responsibility as parents to do what we can to support the school in any way possible. 

Thank you for your support.
