News: Funding Plea from The Gattons

Posted on 23rd May 2017

To Whom it May Concern

 

You may have heard that schools in West Sussex are facing dramatic budget cuts.  As a result of this, our school (The Gattons Infant School in Burgess Hill) are finding it very difficult to find money to provide basic resources for our children.  Every class in our school use an Interactive Whiteboard – these are crucial to the delivery of lessons and as a tool for children to use to further their learning.  However, the 8 that we currently have are old and beginning to break down.  They desperately need replacing.

We are sending out an appeal to our community and beyond to ask if they could help us to fund the cost of replacing the whiteboards by donating as much or as little as they can afford, using our funding page provided on the link below;

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this mail.

Kind Regards

Assistant Head

The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
