THREESIXTY ARCHITECTURE – RAINBOW WEEK CHALLENGE 2015
FUNDRAISING CHALLENGE for EAST PARK SCHOOL, GLASGOW
WHAT IS RAINBOW WEEK?
Rainbow Week is a challenge to wear a specific colour for every day of the week, with the dual purpose of having fun and raising money for a good cause.
It started as a playful activity at Threesixty Architecture in 2013 as we fought the age old stereotype of architects always dressing in black! It create such an enjoyable atmosphere in our office that in 2014 we decided to combine it with a fundraising event. Two great things happened, we raised almost £1,000 and many of our Facebook followers spontaneously joined in. So this year we have decided to go a step further and formally invite our friends to participate in the fun!
WHEN ARE WE DOING IT?
Rainbow Week will start on Monday 15.06.15 and finish on Saturday 20.06.15
WHO ARE WE DOING IT FOR?
East Park School, in the Maryhill area of Glasgow, has provided Education and Supported Accommodation services to children and young people with additional support needs, including autism, since 1874.
Since 2013, Threesixty Architecture have been involved with the school to help deliver an expansion project providing on-site specialist Residential and Respite accommodation as well as a new classroom wing which will provide dedicated safe and secure teaching accommodation for children with additional support needs, whilst reinforcing East Park School’s place in the local community. The enabling works commence on site at the end of June, so they are currently fundraising to finance this project with a view to complete in August 2016, and we want to help them!
As it turns out East Park share our passion for Colours! They are really important to the children, whose regular use of colours can help them differentiate and recognise each day of the week. During Rainbow Week, we are joining them in their weekly journey through colour:
- 15.06.15 – GREEN MONDAY
- 16.06.15 – YELLOW TUESDAY
- 17.06.15 – ORANGE WEDNESDAY
- 18.06.15 – BLUE THURSDAY
- 19.06.15 – RED FRIDAY
- 20.06.15 – RAINBOW SATURDAY – (CONIC HILL WALK, BALMAHA).
