Brooklands Bounce-a-Thon raises £1500

Pupils at Brooklands School, Skipton, have raised £1500 for Yorkshire Children’s Charity through a full day’s ‘Bounce-a-Thon’ using the rebound trampoline installed as part of the Great Yorkshire Build project.

The school in Skipton educates children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) from across the North Yorkshire area and was the beneficiary of the charity’s first Great Yorkshire Build project. The Build saw tired facilities completely overhauled to create an inspiring learning environment.

Pupils and staff at Brooklands held the Bounce-a-Thon to give back to the charity and help more children in Yorkshire. Teacher Jodie Smith said: “After the Great Yorkshire Build, we wanted to fundraise for Yorkshire Children’s Charity to say thank you. The Bounce-a-thon was completely the children’s idea – they suggested that we kept the trampolines bouncing for 48 hours but we agreed that a full school day was challenging enough! So many of the children got involved and it was a brilliant way to get everyone using the new trampoline. It was an amazing way to mark the last day of term and we hope that the money raised will help another school, so that we can pass it on.” 

We were delighted to attend a cheque presentation at the school and meet the pupils who took part in the fundraiser!

We are thrilled that the children are enjoying the new rebound room facility and using it to fundraise and give back to others in their community. 

The Great Yorkshire Build is a truly unique initiative bringing together the private, public and third sector in a one-of-a-kind partnership to refresh and re-energise SEND facilities in Yorkshire. To find out more, visit our Great Yorkshire Build page.
