New Classroom Furniture for St. George's Pupils

Our lovely historical school provides a wonderful environment for our children to learn and play, but from time to time, a refresh is required.

This year, we are raising funds for new chairs and desks in each of the classrooms, as the current furnishings date back to the 60s & children are taller!

December 2015 - April 2016

  • Need


    We have 7 classrooms in our Primary School, of which 6 require new tables and chairs for the children to sit and work from.

    Most of our current furniture was purchased in the 60s, which while solid and rather charmingly retro in design, are now getting seriously banged up.

    And interestingly, our children are getting taller on average, and so many of the tables and chairs are a poor fit for the pupils.

    Replacing classroom furniture is an important investment, and we need your help.


    With your help, we can re-furnish each of the classrooms with solid and robust furniture which will once again last many decades.

    We need to raise £21,600 in total for this purchase. And we're going to need your help!

    If you would like to make a long-term contribution to St. George's of Hanover Square, please consider making a donation towards this cause.

    Make a contribution = £50

    Buy one chair = £100

    Buy on table = £200

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To raise £21,600 for the purchase of new classroom furniture for 6 of the classrooms at St. George's


    » Your contribution towards the project (£50) Your purchase of a chair (£100) Your purchase of a table (£200)
    » We will be raising funds towards this goal at our Annual Christmas Fair, one of our core social events for Pupils, Staff & Parents at the school.
    » We will be raising funds towards this goal at our Annual Summer Fair in Mount St. Gardens, together with our neighbours and local business community.

    What success will look like

    We will share with you the photographs of our shiny new classroom furniture, as we re-furnish each classroom one at a time.

  • Impact


    Your generous donation will enable us to purchase solid and robust furniture for our pupils, that will last for many decades.


    Our central risk is that we are unable to finance the purchase of all of the required furniture, but we are proceeding classroom by classroom, and will continue with our goal until complete.

    Additionally, we are working with the local business community to identify potential donations of a larger scale.


    We will provide updates of how close we are getting to our desired total fundraising goal, as well as sharing photos of each classroom as we refurnish them.
