Solar Schools tear up the school fundraising rule book

Schools usually raise a few thousand pounds a year at the summer fair, but our Solar Schools have defied expectations and smashed through very ambitious targets: raising £10,000 or £15,000 in a single year! All that has added up to a giant £450,000 across the project. But how have they managed it? What is their secret?

A cheesy launch earns Solar School Georgeham primary £4,000 in 24 hours!

"We have got to make some bold steps to wean ourselves off oil and onto renewables." says Richard Elliot, co-ordinator of Georgeham primary's Solar Schools project. While world leaders in Lima at the UNFCCC's climate negotiations having been working that out on a macro scale, the team at Georgeham have the answer for rural north Cornwall. "What better way than to help a school invest for a lower carbon future and educate its children." We heartily agree, and they've certainly been giving it all they've got this term! 

The Georgeham pupils celebrate their launch


Oh what a night!

The invites were sent. We’d got the canapes, the low carbon wine and the music going. We’d decked out Lots Road Auction house with all the pink banners we could find. And as our favorite friends flooded through the doors, we knew 6 November was an evening we wouldn’t forget in a hurry!

The key to Solar Schools fundraising success? Smarties, of course

So, 2014 has been a pretty big year for positive steps on climate change. It’s the year we saw 40,000 people march through the streets of London for the Climate March. The year that Glasgow University divested. The year we broke renewable energy records, again and again and again
