Are you looking for fundraising inspiration?

Fundraising at nursery or school can be fun, educational and rewarding.  It’s a great way for children and young people to play an active part in making a real difference in their local community.

With your school’s support, you can help raise awareness about Acorns and raise vital funds to ensure that children with life limiting or life threatening conditions and their families continue to receive the vital care and support they need when they need it most.

When time is short every moment is precious.  Every penny you raise helps to create special moments and memories for local families.

Packed with inspirational ideas for each term, fundraising tips and helpful resources including a poster template for you to personalise, our FREE School Fundraising Pack can help supercharge your fundraising efforts throughout the year.

“If we all do a little, it adds up to a lot.”

– Mrs Jane Lindsay, Head Teacher, St Laurence Church Junior School

£40 could pay for an hour of care for a child in one of our hospices.

No matter how big or small, everything raised makes a huge difference for children like Sophia.

“Coming to Acorns was the best thing we ever did. I’m so happy when we’re here. This is definitely our happy place.” – Chantelle, Sophia’s mum.

If you have any questions about getting started with your fundraising or have a particular activity/project your school is thinking of doing, we’d love to chat about how we can work together with you.  If this is of interest, please book a chat with a member of our Fundraising Team and we’ll be in touch.

We’d also love to hear updates on any fundraising you’re doing to support Acorns, so please feel free to drop us a line to share your stories – fundraising@acorns.org.uk
