At this time of the year I’m sure many schools are looking for exciting ways to generate extra funds to be spent on new equipment for its pupils to enjoy. Summer fetes are a great option but let us tell you about another exciting way to raise valuable funds.
The picture in this post is of a school who hired one of our pilots to capture aerial images for a leaving present for a fellow teacher. What you read next is what all schools should be doing.
This school had 500 pupils and after the event they printed off 500 copies and offered them to the children for sale at just £2 each. 470 parents purchased them generating £940. The printing cost was £70. So the gross profit for the school was £870. Our pilot charged £300 so the total profit for the school was a massive £570. Now, Just imagine if you had 900 pupils!!
Hiring one of our Drone Operators puts you in very safe hands. All our members are checked for correct CAA permission for aerial work and have insurance.
Please watch our short educational video to understand the UK law. It is very important you hire a legal drone operator. You will find many are sadly acting illegally.
The photos our pilots will capture offer something different and exciting for the children, and also present some great benefits for the school PTA. We’ve helped many schools raise valuable funds in this way. Our pilots will also happily show the children the equipment they use.
So, why not be creative? Spell out the school? make a shape? and get the children involved!
