Fundraising in Schools

Fundraising is a great tool for engaging your pupils further with SCWC. Fundraising ideas can be simple, tried-and-tested, over a few minutes, over the school year, creative, challenging, and also fun (after all, here at SCWC HQ we like to think of it as FUN-raising!). It is an incredibly exciting moment when a young person dedicates their time, talents or treasures to support a charitable cause such as SCWC.

Over the last year we have had some great examples of schools fundraising for SCWC, and it has really enhanced both our campaign and their awareness of the rights of street children, and children more generally.

Christ the Saviour, Ealing

Over the last year, Christ the Saviour have been incredibly enthusiastic about fundraising for SCWC. They’ve done a number of activities including:

– A Football Tournament

– 6 Year Cardboard City – a day on the playground without food or shelter. Pictures here.

– Individual fundraising; for example, one girl sold her unused toys and collectables to raise £30 for SCWC!

– A non-uniform day

– Joining SCWC and ABC Trust at their annual Big City Sleep in March 2013


Other Schools 

– St. Paul’s Cathedral School fundraised for SCWC at their summer school fair.

– Dersingham Primary School held a series of after-school cinema-style showings to raise over £300 for SCWC.
