We are very grateful to the Toy Trust for making a generous grant of £2,500 towards the construction of our fourth classroom block.
The Toy Trust raises money predominantly from the toy industry, its suppliers and friends; and distribute the money raised to charities helping disadvantaged and disabled children within the UK and abroad. They have previously supported the school when in 2014 they made an award for the building of a teacher’s house.
This means that we are over two thirds of the way to completingthe the urgently needed fourth classroom block. £3,583 is still needed – please pledge to our Bricks Change Lives crowdfunding campaign here, and share it online using the #brickschangelives hashtag.
Recommendations from our supporters
We have been taken aback by the level of support for the Bricks Change Lives project, here are some stories from our supporters on why they have chosen to pledge.
Charity professional Justina Forristal talks about why she thinks this is such a worthwhile project:
And here are messages from other people who have pledged:
‘I’m so glad you contacted me about this splendid project. It is the sort of thing that is very close to my heart, personal contact, low overhead and a most worthy cause.’
Professor Ken Siddle
‘It’s obviously a worthwhile cause. I generally give to charity in some way each year, but a couple of things drew me to this project:
– It’s money going direct to a project.
– In my humble opinion, education is the key to providing young people with opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have as well as skills to support and benefit their communities/country.’
Virtual wall takes shape
At Ganet’s Adventure School the builders are constructing the foundations. In Glasgow our Trustee Deirdre Nelson is building a Virtual Wall with the names of our £20 donors.
Please join Justina, Rob, Ken and our group of supporters by making a pledge today, and by sharing the school’s story with friends and family.
