Canonbury Primary School playground Fundraising

Help us to raise money to fund the redevelopment of our school playground

We are launching a fundraising campaign to raise money to help fund the redevelopment of our school playground during the academic school year of 2017/18.

Over the summer, our new, all-weather sports pitch arrived at Canonbury. This means that the surrounding KS1/2 playground will now need to be smartened up and redeveloped. So how are we planning to fund this? Canonbury School Foundation is a registered charity, so we can apply for grants from other charitable organisations. But first of all, we need to show that we have raised some money for the project ourselves. Throughout the year, there will be a host of fundraising activities taking place for everyone to get involved in.

Fundraising Ideas

We have lots of ideas to help raise the money we need and we would love your help during our fundraising year. Find out our plans below

<< Tickets are now sold out so please bid online >>

The auction will run online from Thursday 28th September with some lots online only and some running into the evening meaning that if you are unable to attend on the night you will still have the chance to bid. The online auction will close at 10.30pm on 12th October.

You can bid online on over 100 fantastic promises – from holiday cottages and West End shows to kids’ football parties with Karl and Hayden on the new pitch, or even be Head Teacher for the day!

We have an ambitious goal to raise £25,000 from this event so please bring along or tell your friends and family about the event and the online auction - it is open to all.
