Schools

Whether you are a student or teacher there are lots of ways that you can support the Centre and help young people reach their potential

Become fundraising heroes

We help schools to create inspiring fundraising ideas. Pre-prep, prep, senior school, Primary, secondary, and sixth form. Whether you are a student or teacher there are many ways that you can support the Centre and help young people reach their potential.

There are many ways that you can fundraise, and we can support you all the way. We can help you with assemblies or workshops, or arrange a visit from a speaker.

  • Sponsored walks and runs
  • Food poverty for a day – could you cook a meal for £1 for four people? What was the difference in cost between that meal and your normal dinner? Donate the difference! But go further, and donate the difference x 7, knowing you'll give another family the dignity to eat a little better for just one week
  • Collect food for our food bank
  • Sponsored no-tech / digital detox – or donate the equivalent of your Netflix, Sky, or Disney+ subscription
  • Sponsored silence
  • Woolly hat day
  • Mufti day
  • Swimathon
  • Bake sale
  • Sleepout (or sleep in)
  • Donate the cost of just one restaurant meal that you have saved on this past year.
  • Virtual marathons
  • Baby, I love you – donate £100 to help us buy baby milk and nappies for a family in need
  • Give up a treat - maybe the money you save by not having snacks could be donated? The parents could skip their occasional Cappuccino

Whatever you decide to do, all of the money you raise will go directly to helping some of the most vulnerable people in society. Our dedicated team are here to support you. We can help to set up your Just Giving page, speak to your school in person or virtually, and send you posters and flyers. Once you’re done, we can send you a ‘giant cheque’ to use as a photo opportunity for your newsletter.
