Fundraising ideas, events and tips to inspire your whole school, college or nursery.

We aim to build long and meaningful relationships with our local schools.

You’ll not only help to fund our vital work, but also empower children and young people to engage with their community and make a real difference through their education.

How to get your school involved with fundraising

The oldies and the goodies!

Hold a mufti day, hold collections and/or a raffle at school concerts and plays, or have a special fundraising stall at Summer and Christmas fetes.

Book an assembly

We’d love to visit your school to tell pupils more about the work of Chestnut Tree House, either through an assembly, or a workshop. Our specially trained staff will tailor their talk to your needs, and ensure everyone gains a much more in-depth knowledge of what a children’s hospice does.

Contact us

Get in touch! We'd love to hear more about your school and what fundraising you're planning. Or if you're looking for more information about us, or how to help - our dedicated team of fundraisers are here to support you.
