Friends of TSM
We would like to introduce our new charity to you all and ask for your help in spreading the word. We are the Friends of Trinity St Mary’s CE Primary School – set up with the specific purpose to raise funding for the redevelopment of the upper school playground in 2022.
The new design is being put together with the help of Mr Deeley, Miss Shackell and the School Council and will involve resurfacing the playground, installing a multi-sport ‘cage’ and building outdoor classroom seating. Our aim is to raise £30,000 so the work can be done over the summer holidays. The renovations will not only improve the facilities and education of current and future pupils of TSM, it will also allow the school to partner with more clubs and associations to offer after-school, weekend and holiday sports clubs – benefitting the school and the wider community.
We have registered with the Charity Commission (charity number 1194469) so that we can apply for grants and register with JustGiving. The Wandsworth Grant Fund has offered £8,000 to go towards the multi-sports cage but we need to raise at least another £10,000 by the end of March to be able to start the project.
How you can help:
1) Spread the word and ask local funders and businesses if they can sponsor the project – sharing the JustGiving link (active from next week) or introducing them to the charity/trustees.
2) Add “Friends of Trinity St Mary’s CE Primary School” as your AmazonSmile chosen charity – instructions attached – and shop through easyfundraising.com when possible (partners include Boots, Argos, M&S and John Lewis) so that a donation goes directly to charity at no cost to yourself.
3) Join the charity as a trustee or committee member to help us apply for more grants and come up with more fundraising ideas. Current Trustees are Esther Thomas, Hayley Van Den Bergh, Mella Drewienkiewicz, Scott Parratt and Caroline Pallister – contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know when the next meeting is.
