Fundraising Ideas & Fund Opportunities

There are countless ways you can raise funds for your school that can facilitate the purchase of a shade structure and/or sun hats and sunscreen for all pupils. Sun Safe Schools have listed below some great ideas, plus several links and downloads to various information packs and websites, to provide a wide range of additional ideas and resources to assist you in implementing successful fundraising solutions.

Hold a 'Sun Safe School Day'

If you haven’t already decided to
do so, why not hold a ‘Sun Safe
School Day’ to reinforce the Sun
Safe message to all pupils and raise
funds at the same time. Simply ask the
children to come dressed as ‘Sun Safe
Superstars’ ensuring they wear appropriate Sun Safe attire (a T-shirt to cover shoulders,
a broad brimmed sun hat to shade the face,
neck and ears, sunglasses to protect their
eyes – not forgetting to bring their SPF30+
sunscreen). Ask children to bring in £1
each on this day to support your cause
and perhaps incorporate another
fundraising idea too.

Sponsored Sunflower
Growing Competition

Children love to grow sunflowers,
why not turn a sunflower growing
competition into a sponsored
grow so that children can gain sponsorship for each cm their
flower grows!

Seeds are inexpensive and
children can learn about the
positive effects of the sun whilst
raising funds for their school,
which help protect them from
the negative affects of the sun. Simple, effective and the potential
to raise lots of money!
