We have been working with Participate Projects since June 2013. Participate Projects are a charity that helps ordinary people achieve extraordinary things by turning their ideas into reality. The ideas range from transforming local communities, tackling social issues to changing people’s lives.

We contacted Participate Projects as we wanted to turn the quad areas in the middle of our school into something the children could use regularly and be proud of.
Anthony from Participate met with Miss. Gardner and Mrs. Vento and gave them lots of exciting ideas. We decided to turn one of the areas into a garden with a pond and raised beds so that we can grow our own herbs, fruit and vegetables.
Participate went away and told lots of companies about our ideas and asked them if they would like to help. We received funding from Asda, free materials from Manningham Concrete and lots of fantastic employees from UKAR and Santander volunteered to do the work for us. We also used some of the money raised by our Friends of St. William's group.
