Up and down the country, our Solar Schools are always wow-ing us with their fundraising creativity and dedication.
Now it’s time they wow-ed you. Because this week our schools hit £500,000! Read it, half a million pounds!!
Since 2011 we’ve worked with 65 schools, and each team has made the project their own. From pupil-run conker shys, to sponsored bungee jumps to seven hour table tennis marathons, every penny they’ve raised has gone towards making their schools a cleaner, greener place.
And as we come to the end of this year, there’s been plenty to celebrate from our current crop of solar schools. All Saints and St Richards primary raised £900 at their amazing pub quiz, Calstock primary have whacked out a fundraising event virtually every week, and Moorfield primary pupils pitched to a local business and received a whopping £10,000! And of course all our schools got creative to win some cash from Good Energy.
It isn’t just about the money, because our schools have used the project to reach into the community, build networks and educate pupils and parents about the environment.
A lot of dedication and hard work has gone into every solar project, so a huge well done to all the schools and thank you to the donors!
