We have done amazingly well with our Aviva project, raising money for a new minibus with wheelchair access this term, and we still have a few days left to raise more. The F.O.A are delighted with the support we have received from our community and the Aviva employees who have made donations.
We have also received over £2,000 from Sovereign Thriving Communities Fund which has been a fabulous boost.
So back to the question… How much does a minibus cost? The answer…a lot! The school has quotes of around £28,000.
The friends already have £8,000 from previous fundraising and add to that the £5,000 (plus whatever else we raise in the next week.) So as you can see we have a way to go.
