My story

[p][b]Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! [/b][/p][p]A few months ago, I entered a raffle and to my great surprise, won a place in the 2019 London Marathon. I couldn't believe my luck and I really wanted to put this unexpected gift to good use. Fundraising for a cause close to my heart was the obvious choice and as many of you know, Malone Integrated College is VERY close to my heart! [/p][p]I trained hard, even when the weather was horrible and on 28th April I joined 42,000 other runners to pound the streets of London and eventually reach the finish line! It was a great feeling, not least because I was supporting this amazing school.[/p][p]Back in 1995, I was part of a group of parents who came together to set up an integrated second-level college in our area. We worked hard to make this dream a reality and in spite of a few obstacles along the way, our school opened its doors in 1997. That was such a proud moment for the new pupils, principal and staff, and for everyone who supported our dream. In the years that followed, I was delighted to continue my involvement as Chair of Governors, and also as a parent when Mark and Eoin became pupils.[/p][p]Today, [url=https://www.malonecollege.org.uk/?fbclid=IwAR2g-V693QtBy37Qm-icp7-h297my38Y3iFIGFNCYyX638tlzmZgdYYOCvI]Malone Integrated College[/url] continues to be a dynamic and vibrant school, committed to giving all students the best possible opportunities to learn, grow and achieve. It has been a great privilege to witness the dedication and passion of the the principal, staff and governors over the years.[/p][p]There have been lots of challenges, but (as for so many other schools), finance is the biggest one at the moment. Massive cut-backs have already been made and there’s no scope to trim the budgets any further. That’s a very stressful situation for everyone who works so hard to deliver a high-quality education. [/p][p]They shouldn’t have to face this challenge alone, which is why I’m asking for your help. [b]Let’s make a difference by raising some funds to help the school at this challenging time.[/b] The money raised will go towards an urgent upgrade of ICT resources across the whole school, in preparation for the new school year in September.[/p][p][b]It would be great if you could help the school by:[/b][/p][p][b]Making a donation through this page [/b]– you can donate as little as £1 and all contributions are hugely appreciated. If you’re a UK taxpayer, please remember to click the gift aid option - it adds an extra 25% to the your donation. [/p][p][b]Sharing the campaign with your friends and connections. [/b]There’s a big network of parents, past pupils and other supporters out there – imagine how much we could raise together![/p][p]Thanks for your support![/p][p]***************************[/p][p]The [url=https://www.ief.org.uk]Integrated Education Fund[/url] is a long-standing friend and supporter of Malone Integrated College. They've been with us since the very beginning and we're grateful for their help with this fundraising campaign.
