Dear supporter,

Now the campaign has ended I can give you an update of where we are with the race car project.

This campaign was always to secure the funding for the first part of the project and reaching over £1200 has been amazing. I cannot thank you enough and when the project is fully funded and completed I will make sure you can see the engagement and learning opportunities it brings.

Please make sure to update your contact details with where to send your rewards such as thank you messages. If you have chosen a sponsorship reward level, as soon as the vehicle is funded, built and completed we will add your sponsorship and be in touch.

The plaque in the STEM Inspiration room will go up in due course with names on it for those that want this. A small way we can recognise your support in the project.

So what is next? With such an amazing amount already raised, this makes the final funding much easier to achieve the full target of £2850. I am in communication with several STEM organisations that offer grants, I am confident that with the funding already secured they will be able to support us in completing the project.

Again, thank you so much for your support and I look forward to keeping you updated on the progress.

What an incredible first 2 weeks!

Thank you all for your support during this project. The buzz around school is amazing.

Having raised over £1000 in this early stage is mind-blowing!

We are already starting to look at how we can get started with design ideas and with the 2019 finals being held at Silverstone, we would love to be ready to enter next year.

Your donation will have an impact on the decision students make for career paths and their futures.

Remember to tell friends, family, colleagues and anyone that will listen about the campaign and maybe we can smash our target before Christmas!

Many thanks,

Mr Nicholson.
