School Fundraising Ideas

Fundraising at School

Each year thousands of students from around the country take part in our exciting fundraising activities.

By using their enthusiasm, ingenuity and creativity they raise vital funds for our work with vulnerable and disadvantaged children.

2016 is a very special year for Barnardo’s. It will be 150 years since Thomas Barnardo arrived in London, a few months later an outbreak of cholera swept through the East End killing more than 3,000 people and leaving families destitute. Thousands of children slept on the streets and many others were forced to beg... and so the work of our founder began.

Be a part of our incredible history by choosing to undertake one of the fundraising activities from the links below.
