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.
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
Current estimation is that the Auction raised nearly £40,000!
Thank you to everyone who donated or won an item in the auction. It was a great success. A number of parents were heavily involved in the event, but a special mention must go to Suzie Graves, Emily Morton.
The event was hosted by Katherine and Nick Duncalf, who did an amazing job of persuading people to bid for items.
The Canonbury School Foundation relies on the generous donations from parents, carers and the local community.
If you would like to provide a one-off donation to Canonbury School Foundation we have a Give As You Live charity account where you can make your payment.
