Why we need your support

St. Mary's is a much-loved infant school at the heart of the Witney community. Our current playground is old and no longer fit for purpose. We desperately need a new playground that enables our children to play, share and learn safely and provides future generations of children with the best possible start in life. We have already raised £23,000 towards our goal but we urgently need your help to raise the final £50,000 so the project can be completed.

What the children of St. Mary's say...

'I'd like a huge sandpit to jump into!'
'We need a playground where we can have adventures.'

How your donation can help


Will build a large, climb in sandpit that also transforms into a stage. A marvellous way to develop the imagination of our budding thespians.


Will purchase and install a fabulous swinging set of monkey bars. Great for developing agility and risk-taking.


Will provide a wildlife rich pond with safe platform area to pond dip. Perfect for budding scientists to investigate minibeasts, tadpoles and toads!


Will provide a colourful, meandering walkway that links the play areas together and leads to a turfed seating area for storytelling and learning.


Will enable the project to begin immediately and provide the specialist building works that are essential for a project of this size.
