Raise money with an organised event

If you want to raise money for vulnerable children in the UK, look no further than our organised events.

They cover everything from running marathons to The Big Toddle, and even the opportunity to look after a boiled egg for a week (children only for this one, please!). 

We've done some – but definitely not all – of the work for you! 

Challenge events 

It's time to get physical! Marathons, bike rides and hikes – we can help you meet the challenge.

The Big Toddle 

​The Big Toddle is the UK's largest pre-school fundraising event, a sponsored walk that gets young ones active and, with a little help from the Teletubbies, raises money to help vulnerable children.

Hat Day 

Dream big and have fun. Your little ones choose who they want to be for a day and then go to school wearing a hat to match. You can have extra fun making a hat. The organiser asks for a small donation from every child. We provide worksheets, poster templates, social media banners, lesson plans and letters to send out. 

Register now and join us for some fun on Hat Day

Share your birthday

Sometimes it's better to give than to receive! Tell your friends and family that you would like them to donate to Barnardo's rather than give you a present on your birthday. 

Register now and get that warm and fuzzy feeling on your birthday

Eggciting Challenge 

Look after a boiled egg for a week and help us look after vulnerable children. It's trickier than it sounds and lots of fun. This sponsored challenge teaches youngsters about caring and sharing as well as how to decorate and dress eggs up.

Do your own thing

Of course, you can also do your own thing and organise your own event.
