Fundraising ideas

Fundraising at nursery or primary school

At CHSW we make fundraising fun especially for our youngest supporters. With colourful  events that your nursery or primary school children can get involved with and raise lots of laughs as well as raising money for our charity.   Ideas include:  non-uniform day,  Teddy Bear’s picnic,  Toddle Waddle or you may have your own ideas.  Don’t forget to tell us about your event.  We love to see pictures of you having fun. 

Fundraising at school or college

There are many ways that your school or college can help raise money for CHSW that are fun and can also challenge and develop your student’s skills in business and team working.  Whether you decide to join in on one of our CHSW events such as £30 Challenge or Rainbow Run.  We have plenty to choose from on our website.  Or maybe you would like to arrange your own event such as a non-uniform day, a sponsored event or a sports tournament.  

Since 2019 schools across the South West have helped us to raise over £33,000! 

Please let us know about your fundraising plans and we can support with fundraising materials.  We also love to see your photos from your events. 

Whatever you plan to do, have fun with your fundraising!
