I am delighted to tell you that Sport England have confirmed that they will contribute £100,000 towards our new floodlit all weather pitch – this is fantastic news and means we are now in a position to go ahead and start making arrangements to start building work early in the new year!!
However, as a school, we are still someway short (about £50,000) of the target we ourselves need to raise towards this £500,000 project and these are the possible ways you could help us:
- Please log in to https://www.avivacommunityfund.co.uk/voting/project/view/17-2867 and cast your 10 votes for our project – if we get enough votes, we are in with a very good chance of receiving £25,000 from Aviva’s Community Fund due to the special community nature of this project. Last day to vote is Monday 20th November.
- If you would like to make a personal donation or, if you own a business, would like to make a corporate donation, please get in touch with Tracey Jones, Assistant Business Manager, who is very successfully running this project - TJones@garstangcommunityacademy.com
- Ask friends and family to do the same.
Many thanks for your unwavering support in this – this will be a very special facility for the school and for the community as a whole.
