Schools, Colleges & University/RAG fundraising

Fundraising within your school is a great way to get involved with Age UK Hillingdon from non-uniform days to cakes sales, the choices are endless.

For parents: Contact your child’s school and see if they are willing to do a fundraiser in aid of Age UK Hillingdon.

For teachers: Fundraising is a great way of getting children to work together whilst supporting a worthy cause, whilst giving your pupils a real sense of achievement when they have reached your fundraising target.

For Universities/RAG: RAG Raid bucket collections are a great way to have fun and raise money at the same time.

Some great fundraising ideas for schools are:

  • Wear a Woolly Day – Help to keep older people warm this winter
  • Non-Uniform Day – Ask pupils to donate a £1 to wear their own clothes to school. Get teachers involved too by asking them to wear school uniform.
  • Book sale – Ask pupils, parents and teachers to donate their used books to the school, then hold a book sale where all proceeds go to Age UK Hillingdon.
  • Host a ticketed show: like a concert, play or dance at the school auditorium with a percentage of the proceeds going to Age UK Hillingdon.

We will support you all the way by staying in regular contact and providing balloons, posters and donation boxes to help raise further awareness.
