Dear Parents, Carers, Past Pupils and Bathonians,
Although this campaign has reached our initial targets, there is still an ongoing need for funding for mental health wellbeing at Beechen Cliff School, so we are continuing with this campaign. Any further funds raised will be used to support the vital services offered by the mental health team to students within the school.
Beechen Cliff School PTA can’t thank you all enough for your generosity and kindness in supporting the recent crowdfunding campaign. Watching it grow in just under 4 weeks to over £20,000 has also been a heartwarming and uplifting experience for so many pupils, staff and the PTA. It’s certainly clear from the numerous messages you’ve left, just how much this school is appreciated by both past and present pupils and the local community alike here in Bath.
Your donations will make such a profound difference to the lives of young people. Thank you for your kind generosity.
Beechen Cliff School PTA is proud to launch this crowdfunding appeal to help support children and families most affected by this pandemic.
We aim to raise £5000 to support the mental health services offered to the Beechen Cliff School Community.
We would like to support the ongoing vital work for the ‘Solution-Focused Mental Health/ wellbeing programme’. A need has been identified amongst 10% of our parent body who replied in the first wave of communication and are actively seeking support with their own and their family’s mental health.2.

The provision of good technical support is essential in developing learning and ensuring that they are able to progress in line with their peers.

The PTA funded a new all-purpose school clubhouse successfully installed as a shell just before the first lockdown. However, work still needs to be completed including the provision of running water, drainage facilities and electricity. The clubhouse is currently being used daily as an emergency satellite canteen to feed the masses. Supporting these vital works will bring immediate benefits in covid times and longer term resourcing for the wider community, in both social and sporting terms, as a fully functioning school facility.
So why Crowdfunding?
It’s a great way to achieve a fundraising target through a group of people all coming together to put funds into the same pot and encouraging others to do the same. The key to any crowdfunding appeal is getting the message out there via all of our networks – social media including messaging apps like What’s App.
Please help us to make this possible by donating what you feel comfortable giving. Every single donation and share helps too!
To set up a regular donation, please click on the DONATE button. You can choose how much to donate each month, and we can also claim Gift Aid on your donation, boosting it by 25%. This can be cancelled and controlled by yourself, at any time should your circumstances change.
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 vital wish list of projects.
Thank you so much for your support of the PTA and for sharing this campaign.
