Kick off on £3.8m fundraising for new sports hall!

Let’s get the ball rolling… donate here

The scene is set: planning permission has been granted. Students and community clubs are excited by the prospect of a new sports hall. Only a funding gap lies between us and realising our vision.

We’re working hard to secure large scale funding from the Government and from grant-funding bodies including Sport England. Now we need to show that, as a community, we are committed to achieving our sporting vision. Our Friends have already raised £5000… but WE NEED YOUR HELP – students, parents and carers alike - to reach our goal of a fantastic new sports hall to benefit our current students and generations to come.

Play your part: you can help us to realise wonderful, life-long benefits for our students by:

·        Making a donation online now via BTMyDonate – just search for ‘Guildford County School’ in the Charity box (NB - not the Fundraiser's box, that's for your own fundraising events to support our Sports Hall Appeal) or visit https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/guildfordcountyschool

·         Thinking about sponsorship opportunities – how does your business/company support local charities? Perhaps they choose a local charity to support each year – can County’s sports hall be the annual charity for 2018? Is your company looking for effective local sponsorship or advertising opportunities, while supporting a meaningful cause for their employees and community?

·         Introducing us to people who might be able to help, including businesses, professional sports clubs and personalities

·         Following us Twitter @GuildfordCounty and our GCS Friends on Facebook, and sharing our story widely with your friends and contacts

·         Supporting our fundraising events by coming along, helping us to sell tickets or by volunteering or joining our GCS Friends event committee

·         Fundraising for our Sports Hall – through whatever Challenge/Event/Cake sale you see fit - Tough Mudder, half-marathon, bike challenge, dance-a-thon… You can easily create your own fundraising event on our BTMyDonate page! 

·         Volunteering some time or expertise to help us promote our Sports Hall campaign – this huge challenge requires a team effort – let’s demonstrate County’s spirit!

We’d love to hear from you - please get in touch today (cdrake@guildfordcounty.co.uk) if you would like to talk to us about helping in any way. Thank you for helping us to inspire all of our students to be the best they can be!
