How your fundraising will help

Lucia, three, enjoys a nutritious porridge made from fresh produce from the community garden at a Save the Children supported preschool in Zomba District, Malawi.

Every child should get the chance to learn, play and grow up healthy and happy. But millions of children around the world are missing out on this – just because of where they’re born. You can help children – and help change the future.

Children like Lucia from Malawi. Lucia’s three. She loves playing with her friends. At nursery school she’s given a bowl of healthy porridge every day by a Save the Children worker. That’s really important for Lucia because lots of children in Malawi don’t get enough to eat.

By taking part in Muddy Puddle Walk you can help children like Lucia have lots of fun at nursery school and get healthy food to eat.

That’s not a problem! You can hold your Muddy Puddle Walk on whatever day suits you and your children.

Your Muddy Puddle Fundraising Pack will be sent out in March.

The pack is full of ideas to help busy grown-ups plan a great walk, including nursery activities, fundraising tips to help you top up your total, and stories to help your little ones learn about the lives of other children around the world.

You'll also get advice from Peppa and her friends to help you decide which walk's right for you, planning tips and posters, stickers and muddy puddles to decorate.

There are lots of easy ways to raise money on your Muddy Puddle Walk. And however you fundraise, you’ll help Save the Children make life better for children around the world.

Your Muddy Puddle Fundraising Pack is full of great ideas to raise money – so you can choose which option will work best for you and your children. You could ask for a donation from parents at your nursery, or hand out sponsorship forms to everyone who takes part.

Or, why not hold a Muddy Puddle Pie sale at your nursery or home and ask for donations from everybody who buys a tasty treat? The extra money you raise could mean Save the Children can help get food to children who have to go to bed hungry every night.

You can be as creative as you like – ask for donations per puddle, or come up with your own challenge for your little ones. And don’t forget to get your fellow teachers involved as well!

That’s okay! You can still get involved and help children around the world. Set up a treasure hunt or an obstacle course inside and make your own muddy puddles using the puddle templates in your Fundraising Pack. Or if you can’t get to your local park, why not go for a walk in the playground and make puddles out of mud and water – or even paint?

We suggest half a mile for older children but your walk can be as short or as long as you like. Just make sure you choose a route that's safe and suitable for your children's capabilities. You will receive tips for planning a great walk in your Fundraising Pack.

The money you raise will help us to save children’s lives all over the world. We believe that every last child should get the chance to learn, play and grow up happy and healthy – no matter where they’re born. The money your little ones raise on their Muddy Puddle Walk will help make this happen.

Gift Aid is a scheme that allows charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, which means your donations will be worth 25% more to us at no extra cost to you. Whether you pay online, by phone or post please make sure that you send all your filled-out sponsorship forms to Save the Children. You can find a sponsorship form in your Muddy Puddle Walk fundraising pack, or you can print another one here.

If we don't receive your forms, Save the Children won't be able to claim Gift Aid.

According to HMRC rules, certain donations are not eligible for Gift Aid. If your donation falls into any of the following categories, Gift Aid shouldn’t be claimed:

  • Donations made by anyone that is not a UK taxpayer.
  • Donations made on behalf of someone else or a group of people – For example, you collect money from your friends and family and then made a bulk donation. Even if they are UK taxpayers, the donation is not eligible. HMRC needs a Gift Aid declaration from each of the donors contributing to the collection.
  • Donations made in return for something. For example, you are making a donation in return for a ticket to attend an event, or a raffle ticket.
  • Donations made on behalf of a company – as you can only make Gift Aid declarations on your own taxpayer status when spending your own money. However, the company can claim tax relief on the donation when donating directly to the charity.
