My old school (an English public school - day fees currently £22,380 / yr, boarding £33,165 / yr), would like you to donate £595 because some of the pupils fancy playing chess outside. Don't worry, you can #GiftAid it.

Now, it is probably disloyal or ungrateful or something but if you are paying over 20 or 30 grand per year to send your kid to school, you'd assume they could afford their own overpriced, oversized chess game. If not, why not just use a normal one? @Poundland probably have them.
But the thing that gets me is that, when I was there, they sort of instilled a sense of right and wrong and helping people that didn't have as much as you - charity was an important concept. However, we didn't raise money for bloody outside chess sets.
