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 £20 Challenge or Bake Off!

Or maybe you'd like to be one of our School Ambassadors? Or hold your own and choose us as your chosen charity, we would love you to tell us about it!

Over the last year 297 schools across the South West have helped us to raise over £90,000!

Sports tournament

Hold an inter-class rounders, football or netball tournament. Encourage your teachers to form a team and take on a team of pupils. Ask for donations from spectators or charge a small entry fee per team.

schoolboy-with-backpackNon-uniform day

Everyone loves not having to wear their uniform so ask for a small donation in return for people wearing their own clothes. Why not pick a theme if you want to make more of a statement, everyone could come as their favourite film character or superhero?

Or maybe get your teachers to come in school uniform!

Hold a non-uniform day

Jumble sale

Gather together old books and toys and hold a sale in the school hall or playground. A great way for unwanted items to be treasured by someone else! You could run your sale like a business and everyone could take on a role in making it a success.

Hold your own bake off event for Children's Hospice South WestCake sale

Challenge your teachers to a bake-off challenge judged by you, or see how many different types of cupcake people can bring to sell. Bake some delicious treats and sell them during break times and after school.

Remember to put up some posters before so that everyone knows to bring some spending money!

Host your own bake-off!
