FOCS fundraising campaign for Carswell Community Primary School
Carswell Community Primary School is at the heart of our community and supports our children and families to be happy together and enjoy learning for life. Friends of Carswell School (FOCS) is the parent teacher association for the school. As a charity, we raise funds to support our school to ensure every child gets the most out of their time at Carswell.
What a way to end the unprecedented year of 2020 with some fabulous news that we have reached our first fundraising target and will be able to start the long awaited refurbishment of our dining hall! A huge thank you to everyone who has so kindly donated, sponsored children for the 1864 Watercress Challenge and to our lovely local community supporters in providing Christmas Trees and gifts for the raffles.
In total a whopping £4,431 has been donated and this will be sufficient to cover the costs of updating the dining room.
We are excited to continue this online crowdfunding campaign to really boost our resources and to bridge the gap between what we can budget for and what we really want to achieve and deliver to our students.
Forest School Garden Area
Our next target for the New Year is to develop the garden area to give our wonderful teachers a chance to include Forest Schooling within our curriculum.
Target - £3,000
We can claim Gift Aid on donations received and add a whopping 25% to each and every pound donated!
Power of Regular Giving
If you feel comfortable to set up a regular donation from your family this would be gratefully received as we can use these funds to plan and budget during the year. Please click on the DONATE button and choose how much to donate each month. If you are a UK tax payer then please choose to Gift Aid your donation so we can claim the extra 25% on each donation.
Of course, Regular Giving may not suit everyone, so if you prefer, you can choose to make a one-off donation to help fund our wish list of projects.
We want to spread the word about our wonderful school and hope that the community around us can contribute in any way they can to help provide some much-needed funds for supporting our children.
Thank you very much for your kind donations and support in sharing this page as widely as possible
