Schools, Colleges and Nurseries

Fundraise for a day, a term or even a year, and your support will make a big difference to babies born premature or sick.

There are lots of ways your nursery, school, college or university can help raise money for Bliss. We also have lots of youth organisation groups that fundraise for us as well. Whatever you decide to do, our events team will be there to support you every step of the way.

Pick a Location and Date

You might choose your school gymnasium, playing fields, the local park, leisure centre or community hall. Wherever you decide to do your fundraising, make sure you have all the permissions you need before you start advertising your event.

Get people involved

Think of ways you can get lots of different people connected with the school involved. You could:

  • Try to gather parents, grandparents, students, teachers as well as the local community together.
  • Encourage the school council, PTA and governors to come up with fundraising ideas or help your ideas.
  • Approach local businesses and ask them if they are willing to donate any prizes, sponsor or promote your event.

Keeping your event safe & legal

  • Ensure children are not approaching strangers for sponsorship.
  • Food hygiene - work to the standard rules (you can find advice on Food Standards Agency website).
  • Health – ensure that your event has necessary first aid cover.
  • Raffles – see more information here.
  • Using the Bliss logo – ensure that you use our registered charity number alongside our logo on any posters.
