I live in Woolton village, Liverpool and my two children attend Bishop Martin Primary school, next to St Peter’s Church. Over 60 years ago, the now school’s playing fields were the location of the famous summer fete at which John met Paul. I am a member of the school PTA and a couple of years ago, we recreated the summer fete to mark the 60th anniversary of that special day. The sun shined and hundreds of fans from around the world came and helped celebrate.
The school takes great pride in its Link with The Beatles and I was hoping it would be okay if I could ask for help from some of their fans. Unfortunately due to government cutbacks, the school has struggled to be able to update outdated playground equipment in recent years. We, the PTA, launched a campaign last July to raise funds to improve our children’s outdoor space. So far we have managed to raise £9k of the £40k needed which is great but we still have a long and winding road to reach our goal.
We have recently joined forces with a non profit charitable donation website which allows people to donate through a simple process, similar to crowdfunding. As we have strong links with the Beatles fan base already and as the the project is to improve the area of where John met Paul, we hoped that you would not mind me leaving the link below for those who may wish to help us with our pretty challenging target.
Thank you, and great site by the way!
Hi @Bishop Martin PTA. Welcome to the forum. Best of luck with the appeal, and sorry that this government is so utterly awful at everything (including funding public services, but also all the other things too numerous to mention).

I’ll try and donate if I can!

I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”
