Schools and young people

Consider involving an entire class or school to raise funds for The Friarage MRI Scanner Appeal.

Non-Uniform or Fancy Dress Day

Ditch the school tie for a day! Non-uniform days are a fantastic way to raise money for a cause. Students pay a small donation (£1 or £2) to come to school in their regular clothes.

School-wide Sponsored Activity

Sponsored activities are another way to raise money: ask the children to collect donations from friends and family for a particular activity and try to involve all of the schoolchildren, even the very young ones. Here are some ideas for school sponsored activities:

  • Sponsored run or sporting activity – Set up a race or obstacle course in the school yard and see how many times the students can complete this course. With the school’s permission, you can even provide certificates or prizes for speed and endurance. Perhaps pupils could repeat an activity so they scale the equivalent of the Yorkshire three peaks (2,153m).
  • Quiz day – Hold a quiz day for all the students, with age-specific questions for each subject. Students can collect donations for the number of questions they’ll answer correctly, and the winner gets a prize or trophy.
  • Read-a-thon – Students pledge to read as many books as possible within a set period of time. They can collect flat donations from their relatives or receive a donation based on the number of books they read. English teachers love this one!
