The Big Hop is the event of the year and is an opportunity for children from all over the country to do something fun whilst fundraising for disabled children and young people. We are looking for the following groups to take part in this hop-tastic event:

  • Schools (Primary and Secondary)
  • Youth clubs/groups
  • Girl Guides
  • Scouts
  • Cubs
  • Brownies 
  • Beavers 
  • Rainbows
  • Girls Brigade


Why take part in the Big Hop? 

Being part of The Big Hop will help transform the lives of our families through a range of services we provide including:
Short Breaks
Home Learning
Adventure Playgrounds
Sibling Support Group

It’s never too early for children to learn how they can help others. Even better, The Big Hop is a chance to share in an engaging activity that also positively impacts other children and their families.

Ways to hop

  1. The ‘Hop-off’ - Who can be the longest hopper? Children can take it in turns to see how long they can hop and challenge their friends to do the same.
  2. The Group Hop - Challenge other classes/groups. Which class/group can hop for the longest?!
  3. The Sports Hop - Why not have a space hopper 100m dash as part of your Sports Day or Fun Day
  4. Or you can get creative and make up your own way to hop!

£100 could help pay for one month of home learning sessions for a child 

Next Steps

  1. Choose your ‘way to hop’ or come up with your own hop-tastic event!
