Education isn't just about sitting behind a desk, it's about learning to play with your friends. Our wooden playground equipment is aged and in desperate need of replacement.

Gateshead Delivery stage

pledged of £21,041

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

To give the children the best playtime there is, we need to give them a safe yet challenging area to play in. Since our current playground equipment is so old, it is now unsafe to use in wet weather (and we have a lot in the North East!) and we are trying to replace it. Quality playground equipment isn't cheap though and we need help making it happen for our children.

What we'll deliver:

  • Fit new playground equipment in KS1 yard

Why it's a great idea:

We are fundraising for new playground equipment for our children. Playtime isn't just about letting off steam, it's also about interacting with your friends, using your imagination and letting loose a little. When you're a multi-cultural school, playtime is the ideal time for the children to talk to each other, learn about each other and form long-lasting friendships.

Steps to get it done:

  • Publishing plans for the playground
