Kedel is following strict Government guidelines to keep our workers and customers safe. The Covid-19 virus hasn't stopped us working.  So, order with confidence! However, we are experiencing unusually high volumes of orders, plus Royal Mail and hauliers report up to 5 times more packages than normal. Therefore, delivery times given are our best estimates. We also regret that customer collections from our Burnley unit are also temporarily suspended.

Raising Funds for Education - fund raising tips

Don't be afraid to think big

Sometimes big projects turn out to be easier to raise money for than small ones.

Value for money, long-term investments

It's worth mentioning that raising funds for a long-term value for money project is usually easier, as it's attractive to would be donors.

Recycled Plastic Products such as the one's Kedel offers, last at least 5 times longer than treated wood, yet their whole life cost is much less, as they will never need painting or preservatives, and are unlikely to need replacing for decades.

Here's a little video about one such success story we were involved with.

Interesting fund raising ideas from Australia

And this link is from Australia. We included it because we thought they had a lot of wonderful creative ideas for fund raising, some of which we have never seen before:

Keep coming back - there'll be more

We will be adding more links and ideas in the future so do pop back here from time to time.

What ideas can you share?

If you have any novel fund raising ideas you would like to share, do please send them in, and we'll post them up for everyone else to see.

Send them to our dedicated fundraising e-mail address.

Spread your success stories

If you've been particularly successful at fund raising send us news of your successes and we'll spread the word.

Video success

And if you've made some videos of your activities for YouTube we'll post the links to that too.

It will inspire other schools and education institutions to reach for the stars just like you.

Links to a few good ideas

So, here are a few links to sites we thought would help you get off the blocks fast.

Tell us what our best links and ideas are?

If you find any of our postings and links especially useful, do tell us what you think were the best of the bunch.

And finally, here's a tip from Steve Jobs from Apple:

"My model for business is 'The Beatles'. They were four guys who kept each other's kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That's how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they're done by a team of people."

The same applies to fund raising. Great fund raising is done by a team working together.

I wish you great good luck with your fund raising project.
