Last Friday with a heavy heart we said goodbye to Solar Schools. Over five glorious years we’ve worked with 80 schools and together they’ve raised over £700,000 to install over 2000 solar panels. Not to mention brought their communities closer, learnt new skills and taught over 30,000 pupils about energy and climate change.
This last year was a pretty tough one for solar schools, with government cuts looming it really was now or never to make their solar dreams happen. They did it - but sadly they were part of the final year of Solar Schools.
However we couldn’t see it off out without a bang. So to celebrate all the awesome wins of Solar Schools we planned, prepped and primmed to host the send-off of all send-offs. The SOLARBRATION!
The day itself was a huge success. Set in the quirky Kentish town city farm we had a fete style afternoon do for our fabulous friends and partners. We encased people in bubbles, painted faces and speeches were met without a dry eye in the room. The only hiccup being curious chickens sneaking inside to join the fun.
The day would not have been possible without those that helped, everyone who came and to Kentish town farm for their hospitality. Also a big thank you to the businesses that donated raffle prizes and yummies for goodie bags.
Special thanks to:
It is sad to say goodbye, but we have done some pretty amazing stuff so a HUGE thank you to all those that supported the campaign over the years. Thanks to your donations and support the legacy of Solar Schools will be felt for many years to come.
