Our hospices are fun and vibrant, just like a nursery environment. By having fun with a themed fundraiser at your nursery, you can ensure we can continue to offer support to the children and families we care for.
Support from schools
Schools and colleges
As a teacher, finding time and resources to support charities can be tough, but our Community Fundraising Team can support you with help, ideas or an assembly.
We understand your time is limited with studying, essays and exams but there are so many ways that you can get involved. And helping us also helps you; we can offer you opportunities to gain great experience in a variety of areas, which all helps towards a fabulous CV!
Scouts and Guides
We would love to support your Scouts and Guides in working towards their next badge while they support us in helping make every moment count for life-limited children, and their families.
