Friends of Hillcrest ‘Donate my School’ Crowdfunder

Friends set up the Crowdfunder at the beginning of 2020 to allow us to continue to raise money despite being unable to run our usual fundraising events. The Hillcrest community donated an incredible £2,165 to the fund last year! This money has contributed towards musical instruments and books for the school and the circus workshops and performance enjoyed by the children at the end of last term.


At this years’ Friends AGM we agreed to keep the fund open for another year. Donation is completely voluntary and any amount is welcome. If you would like to donate please do so here:
