Many of the secondary schools that support us find the talks we give and fundraising activities fit perfectly into their Transition Year (TY) Programme, the CSPE (Civic, Social and Political Education) module, Physical Education (PE) class and school sports day.
Secondary school pupils can learn a lot from helping sick children and their families.

- Encourages teamwork and helps create good team spirit
- It’s an opportunity for students to get creative, get active and have fun
We’re behind you all the way
As well as visiting your school to give a presentation, we can provide you with a fundraising pack filled with everything you need, including ‘thank you’ certificates for all who participate. We offer you valuable fundraising advice and support.
