Take part in Number Day 2014 on Friday 5 December and make maths meaningful
NSPCC Number Day is a fun, nationwide maths fundraising event for children and young people of all ages that helps raise money to support the NSPCC.
We believe that every child deserves a safe and happy childhood. By taking part in Number Day, the money you raise will help us protect children in danger and prevent abuse from shaping a child's future.
Everything you need to take part
We'll provide all schools who register with everything they need to make their Number Day a success. Activities and resources available in October will include:
- curriculum-linked fundraising activities, created in partnership with Oxford University Press, will all be available to all registered schools in October.
- Number Day guide, fundraising tips and ideas to help pupils and teachers raise money
- celebrity posters, stickers and certificates to promote your event
- teacher resources including assembly presentations and lesson plans to help you inspire and inform the whole school about the NSPCC's work.
Whether you devote the whole day to digits or have a 60 minute maths session, your support really will count.
How Number Day make a difference
By taking part in Number Day you can help us be there for more children who need us.
"I always feel better about myself after I’ve talked to ChildLine. It’s like one big family where I can speak my mind knowing I won’t be judged."

ChildLine is just one of the many NSPCC services that your fundraising could support. Can we count on you to help?

Feedback from schools
"I chose to take part in NSPCC Number Day because it is such a worthwhile cause, especially as it's for children. The resources were excellent and ready-made. It was great to have the profile of maths raised for the day and the whole school involved in inter-school competitions whilst raising money for charity."
