Fundraise at school

Fundraising events, ideas and tips to get your whole school involved.

Whether it's a non-uniform day, getting creative by making your own collection pots or taking part in one of our events, there are lots of exciting ways you can fundraise for St Helena Hospice and get the whole school involved.

No matter how your school chooses to fundraise, your support will help local people facing incurable illness and bereavement. 

It’s beneficial for all children to have an awareness of the care St Helena Hospice provides locally. A great way to do this is to support the hospice by fundraising. There are many ways schools and children of all ages can get involved and we would be delighted to discuss these opportunities with you.

St Lawrence C of E Primary School students took part in our Christmas campaign last year

Students from St Lawrence Church of England Primary School supported our Christmas Together appeal in 2020.

Some examples of how local schools have been supporting St Helena Hospice...

As well as raising money with a Christmas jumper day in 2020, students from Hamford Primary Academy asked their friends and families to sponsor them to walk 3.23km - the height of Mount Hope, the tallest mountain in British territory - as part of our Hope Together appeal in 2021. 

The school's P.E. lead, Mr Hillier, said “This was a great activity for the children to get involved in, not only were they learning about the UK’s tallest mountain, I could incorporate this into our P.E. lessons to keep them active and healthy. As a school we are always keen to support local charity and show our children the value of supporting the community as they support us!”

St Lawrence Church of England Primary School supported our Christmas appeal in 2020. Students took part in a non-uniform day and the school was decorated with St Helena Hospice paperchains. Pupils gave a donation to have their name written on a paper chain link and at the end of term several links were broken. The students with names on the broken links won a prize.
