Children in Balerno need your help with their #pitchfever project to raise £75,000 to improve their football  and hockey pitch which they want to upgrade to a 2G pitch. They need your support on the neighbourly.com website.

Some funds have already been raised and the effort had a great start to the New Year when they were awarded £10,000 by the People’s Postcode Lottery.

They are also organising a grown up disco on 17 January which you can buy tickets for by clicking here.

The pitch would be used by both Balerno High School and Dean Park Primary School and members of the local community would also be able to use it.

And here they are to tell you themselves how you can help:

 

The children under the leadership are using neighbourly.com to raise awareness of the project. This is what neighbourly aims to do:

Launched July 2014, neighbourly.com is a social network that connects community projects with companies who want to make a meaningful difference in our world.

As responsible citizens we all give what we can. But most businesses are responsible too and are ready to give more: more resources, more funding, more expertise and more manpower.

neighbourly.com is the first technology solution designed specifically to help companies and organisations do this at scale. By providing a free page and clever digital tools to help every community share its story, neighbourly makes it easy for companies to see where their contribution can make the greatest impact. And by using more clever tools to prove that what’s good for society is good for business too, we expect more and more companies to get involved.

By working together, companies have it within their grasp to shape the fairer, more sustainable future we all seek. Our ambition is simple – to help business become the greatest force for good the world has ever known. Society is reinventing itself. People are re-discovering the value of community and are coming together to take action where they live. Whilst every community project is different they share one thing in common – they all need help.
