Go Go Green

for Hunters Bar Infant School Home School Association

£1600.00 + £375.00 Gift Aid = £1975.00
Donated to Go Go Green’s £15000.00 Goal

Through ‘The Big Green Challenge’ we are mobilising in-kind support to ‘green’ the playground of Hunter’s Bar Infant School by the summer of 2019. The aim is to plant a wall of vegetation that will reduce pollution and improve the health and wellbeing of children.

Beyond the direct benefits planting will deliver to the local school community, this campaign aims to positively impact on children’s health and wellbeing on a much greater scale; because we understand that this is an important issue for all inner-city schools, and we’d like to support others facing this challenge.

By partnering with the University of Sheffield to measure air quality and trial planting configurations and species as part of their ‘Breathe Project’, the school will be collecting data and showcasing results that other schools in Sheffield and indeed globally, can use to introduce solutions that improve the air children breathe.

We are working with local and national businesses to help reduce costs and already have some funds raised. Any money raised in this appeal over what is needed for the Go Go Green project will be used in line within the wider Hunters Bar Infant School Home School Association charitable objectives. With immediate plans to improve the outdoor spaces and play equipment to complement the newly greened areas.

All funds raised will be passed to Hunters Bar Infant School Home School Association irrespective of whether our appeal target is reached, not reached or exceeded. If funds are being raised for a specific purpose and, for whatever reason, this purpose is no longer valid, the funds will be transferred to the charity for general use.

The charity

Following the planting of our green screen around our school playground, at Hunters Bar Infant School we are turning our attention to the playground itself: our children would like a flat surface on which to play sport, the ashphalt needs replacing and our climbing equipment upgrading. We've secured a fantastic playground designer who is re-designing our playground for free, building on the fabulous healthy environment we've created with our green screen. Now we need your fundraising support to get building! Work will happen in stages so that children can start benefiting from changes as soon as possible. Help us enrich playtime and help us build a sustainable playground that will serve both the current and future children of Hunters Bar Infant School.

Registered charity (no. 1050258).

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
