In our most ambitious year of projects to date, with more partners than ever before – including Williamwood Secondary School, Kibble Education Centre , Dunblane and Kilsyth Boys’ Brigades, and the St Bernadette’s Parish Malawi Partnership, plus many more – we are putting a spotlight on some fantastic fundraising efforts. in the last year! These are just some of the hundreds of fundraisers which have taken place for Classrooms for Malawi, some big, some small, all making a huge difference. Get involved, and help give some of the world’s poorest children the best chance in life.
Father Stephen Reilly, a founder of the St Bernadette’s Parish Malawi Partnership and volunteer team member, has been extremely successful in meeting his fundraising target through his undertaking of the ‘The Holy Doors Challenge’ with the help of students at the School of Education at the University of Glasgow. The challenge was to visit all 8 Cathedral Holy Doors in Scotland in just 24 hours, using only public transport and foot!
One of the most innovative fundraisers this year has been the 25th Stirling Boys Brigade in Dunblane who have raised an absolutely incredible amount of money through whisky tasting nights, designing Lego miniatures in BB uniforms which sold around the world, raffles, bake sales, and so much more. However, the most unusual and inventive fundraising scheme was the flock of plastic flamingos which descended on Scotland, arriving in droves on people’s front lawns, which would be removed for a donation! This gained national press coverage (http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/local-news/exotic-creatures-take-over-gardens-6380091#GERMieayqoA7I0fc.97) , and raised a fantastic amount of money from the generous Dunblane community.
Many secondary and primary schools also raise money for Classrooms for Malawi in a variety of ways: by holding discos, come as you please days, bake sales, onesie parties and so much more! Classsrooms for Malawi provides an excellent platform for further learning about world issues, and many schools use us in their lessons. Pupils become so passionate about helping their friends in Malawi, they always want to do more. If you want to find out how your school can get involved, email email@example.com.
These are just some of the fundraisers which have taken place recently. Why not join in? You can fundraise as a group or as an individual, for thousands of pounds or just a few quid. Every pound raised will go towards giving the best start in life to Malawian children who simply want to learn in a safe environment. Your fundraiser can truly change lives.
