Over the past few years we have seen just how important schools are to charities and how important charities are to schools. Outside home, it is often where children spend most of their time. When a school loses a fellow pupil to DIPG they are understandably hugely affected and we see time after time, an amazing outpouring of support when this happens.
There are so many ways schools can get involved and help us raise awareness and those vital funds to find a cure. Popular fundraisers in school include, cake sales, sponsored silence, baby photo competition, sponge the teacher, book sale, fairs and fetes and non-uniform days.
We can provide promotional items to support your event
It always amazes us just how much money can be raised by work colleagues getting together for something they care about.
This does not have involve hours of your time, there are a number of ways you can raise money for a very limited effort.
You can introduce dress down days, a swear box, silly tie days or event donate a days wages. Organised events, such as a quiz night, clothing exchange party, sweep stakes, baby photo competition, a coffee morning, a bake sale, a wine tasting party, a race night or an 'Auction of Promises!' always prove very popular.
Many companies offer a matched funding scheme where for each employee they will match up to a certain amount of any money raised.
Abbie's Army would be honoured to be a beneficiary of anything you choose and we will support you every step of the way with fundraising packs and promotional items.
