Save money when you save wildlife

Glasu Iard yr Ysgol is an opportunity for you to help wildlife without it hurting your pocket. When you contribute it's your money that is used to green-up the playgrounds, but you're not out of pocket because the discounts that you are entitled to are of an equivalent value to the contributions that you make.

This means that when you use your discounts, it is actually businesses that are paying to green-up the school grounds, and not you. In addition to benefiting local wildlife, Glasu Iard yr Ysgol is encouraging people to shop locally and support the independent business community. In this way we can get more people back into our town centres, and give the local economy a bit of a boost!

The project is brand new, and the first of it's kind in Wales and the UK. There are not that many traders onboard yet, but as it expands we hope to involve many more schools and businesses from across Ceredigion.

If you do not feel like making a financial contribution, that is fine, but we are looking for people to get involved and contribute to the Campaign in other ways as well - you're time is just as valuable as your money!


How does it work?

BuzzyBee Each term participating schools are provided with the Glasu Iard yr Ysgol newsletter called BuzzaBAZOO! which is written to educate pupils, and the wider community about issues facing local wildlife, and what we can all do to help. Parents can use the links provided within the newsletter to make financial contributions to your child's school. A proportion of the money that you contribute helps pay for the newsletter and the rest is used to green-up the school's outdoor spaces, and make them more wildlife friendly. You may already have seen one of these publications which is why you are here now?

Download the latest BuzzaBAZOO! and opt in to receive each edition by email.

How do I use my discounts?

You can make a financial contribution using the form below. When you do, we will create an account and reward you with Local Credits to an equivalent value to the contribution that you made. (Read more about how the local credit system works here.)  Once you have some credits, you can log in to the website at any time and use them. You can use your credits to obtain a growing range of discounted products from participating stores, including gift vouchers, money-off coupons, and 'Buy now' products.

Please take a look at the Offers page to find out more about the participating businesses.

Thank you for your contributions!
 

 

Have fun saving the planet!

Greening Playgrounds is putting on a Bee Friendly fundraiser night at the Bank Vault in Aberystwyth on Friday March 22nd, to raise funds for the school, and to encourage local people to do more to help bees and other pollinator insects. Live music is to be provided by Aberystwyth heroes Misha and the Kings, with DJ Lady P on the decks. Tickets cost £10, with £5 raised for the school with every ticket sale.

Please contribute!
The Greening Playgrounds Campaign is fundraising to make the outside spaces at school more wildlife friendly, whilst educating children about the nature crises in Wales.
GBP
Please enter a value of £5 or more.

The minimum contribution amount is £5.

After you make your contribution you will have 12 months to use the credit that is awarded to you. If you do not use it within this time period, it will be automatically converted into a donation to your chosen wildlife project, and you will no longer be able to exchange it for discounts from participating businesses.

Please note that any contributions that you make are made available immediately to the wildlife project of your choice, and because of this we are not able to refund the money should you have a change of heart.
