Schools, Colleges and Universities
Fundraising can be lots of fun and provide valuable lessons in community spirit – teaching young people social responsibility and caring for others.
If your school or college would like to get involved with fundraising please talk to a staff member first and get their permission – we would love to have your support and you can be sure any money raised will go towards helping children who really need it.
If your school or college has a charity of the year we would really appreciate it if you would put WellChild forward. We benefit a lot from becoming the focus of everyone’s efforts for a whole year.
Vickerstown Primary School in Barrow in Furness raised over £1000 for us with their Walk for WellChild!
A team of 18 school pupils lead by Anastasia Steed and Roseanna Perry from Kelly College, Tavistock successfully completed the huge challenge of the Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race in order to raise money for WellChild.
All the competitors endured many months of gruelling training which they have had to fit around their hours at college.
The marathon, dubbed by many as the ‘Canoeists Everest’, is a three-day race which has been held annually over the Easter weekend since 1948. The course is 125 miles long.
