Crowdfund your First News Education package

Our new crowdfunding platform provides schools with an effective, fun and straight-forward way to fund their First News Education package. Whether you are looking to introduce First News into your school or supplement an existing newspaper subscription with the iHub, you can ensure your pupils have access to inspiring tools which will advance their core academic skillets and enrich their understanding of world news.

Raise money for your school by encouraging reading at home

We all know the importance of children extending their reading beyond the classroom and to support you in encouraging them we can send you First News flyers for your pupils to take home, explaining how they can subscribe. For every order placed and attributed against your school, we will donate £2. At the end of each term we will send you the funds you have raised, to be used in any way your school wishes.
