- Get the kids involved
Schools do so much for their community, so they’re a natural fit with what we do. Beyond the traditional harvest festival, you could help raise money to fight loneliness in your area by:
• Asking for a 50p donation for each child to dress-down or dress up for the day
• Arranging a bake sale, with monies raised donated to Age Concern
• Taking advantage of the season: getting all crafty for Christmas, Easter or Halloween? Why not ask for a 50p donation to take creations home?
• Making a collection at events (the school play, orchestra recital, parents’ evening etc)
How long will this take? Anything you do at school will need to be cleared by the head, the PTFA or the leadership team, but a quick conversation should be all it takes to get a little bit of promotion in the school newsletter/email.
