Help restore the Fishergate Rocking Horses

Hello! We are Operation Fishergate Rocking Horse, and we are trying to raise money to renovate two victorian rocking horses that we found in our school basement.

So how did all this begin? Someone sent in a photo of four boys sitting on an old rocking horse. We wondered if we still had it, and we did not expect to find what we found. But, in the basement, we found not one, but TWO rocking horses!

Sadly, they have been neglected over the years. Wouldn't it be amazing if we could bring them back into school so the children could ride them again? The Fangfoss Rocking Horse Shop has given us an amazing offer: they will renovate the two rocking horses for the price of one - thank you, Fangfoss Rocking Horse Shop!

And that's why we need you - yes, YOU - to donate whatever you can and help us renovate these rocking horses.

But what if we raise extra money? Any extra money will be put towards renovating other artefacts, such as old photos and our log books, and buying history resources. Also, we would like to invite ex-pupils of ALL ages to come and visit the rocking horses and share all their memories of Fishergate.

Thank you SO much for your support!

Yours sincerely,

Operation Fishergate Rocking Horse
