Schools, nurseries and youth groups

Nursery and school fundraising activities can be a brilliant way to combine learning with having fun. Raising money for Save the Children gives groups the chance to take part in exciting events, while also finding out about life for children in other parts of the world.

Schools fundraising as part of Save the Children's Den Day

Children take part in Save the Children's Den Day fundraising event.

Whether you take part in one of our national events such as Peppa Pig's Muddy Puddle Walk, Den Day or Christmas Jumper Day, or choose your own way to fundraise - like a bake sale, a non-uniform day or something else - you'll be making a big difference to children growing up in the toughest parts of the world. Follow our five steps to fundraising success.

1. Register your event

Whether you’re organising a one-off event or you've chosen Save the Children as your charity of the year, we're here to help. Just fill in our quick form to let us know your plans and you'll get immediate access to our range of fundraising resources and guidance.

2. Book a speaker

To help make your event as educational as possible, why not arrange for a Save the Children speaker to come and talk to your group about how the money they raise will help? To find out if we have a speaker in your area, contact our team on 0207 012 6997 or by email:

3. Order resources

From posters to collection buckets, balloons to sponsorship forms, we can provide everything you need to ensure your fundraising runs smoothly. Not yet sure what you need? Don’t worry - you can contact our support team up to two weeks before the event to order resources.

4. Send in your money

Once your event is over you can pay in the money simply by sending a cheque to: Save the Children, 1 St John’s Lane, London, EC1M 4AR. Please include your name, the name of your school, nursery or group and an address so that we can say thank you.

5. Tell us how you got on

We love to hear how our fundraisers have got on, so do get in touch to tell us after the event. Send photos and stories to and we may even be able to feature them on our social media platforms or in a supporter newsletter. (We will always ask for permission before using photos and names in our publications.)
