Fundraising at your school is a great way of engaging pupils while giving them the chance to learn new skills, mix with other classes and year groups, while helping other disabled children have a happy childhood too.
There are plenty of ways that your school can help KIDS. It could be your child’s school, a school that you work at, or even just one local to where you live. Whether you hold your own fundraising event or select us as your charity of the year partner, we've got lots of ideas to help you.
Here are a few of our ideas:
Teachers’ uniform day Arrange a non-uniform day with a twist – where pupils can wear what they like but teachers have to wear school uniform!
Guessing games 'Guess how many sweets in the jar' or 'Guess the teddy's weight' always get a great response
International food lunch time Invite teachers and students to prepare and bring in foods from around the world instead of the school lunch. Assign a country or continent and enjoy food from around the world!
Get sponsored Why not see if one of your teachers (or even the Head!) would be a good sport and do something funny to help your fundraising efforts? Maybe they'd shave their beard or wear a silly outfit for the day if pupils sponsor enough money to see it happen!
Sports tournament Why not organise a sports tournament at your school? Everyone who takes part pays a fee. You can play any sport that you like – football, rounder, netball, tennis, the choice is yours.
Celebration time! Everyone loves a party so why not hold a disco or live music band at your school and charge an entry fee? You and your friends could make the decorations, and also the food and invite students that play music to entertain the crowds and show their talent!
We're here to help
