Once you’ve chosen your activity, let people know about your day of play.

Ways to play and fundraise

family_updatedsize.jpgMini-Olympics with the kids: Be a champion for childhood as you get your kids and friends together outdoors for a series of Olympic events - sponsoring them for the sport of their choice.

ladies_updatedsize.jpgGames night with work friends: Pick up your pad and livestream a gaming event, or get enough players together to have a games night and pay-to-play with your colleagues.

Whatever you do, and whoever you do it with, make sure you follow government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.

How your fundraising helps

The money you raise could help children like Amber* safely open up about their experiences of abuse.

£25 could pay for the arts and crafts needed to help children who have been sexually abused to open up about their traumatic experiences in a play therapy session. £180 could pay for a trained play therapy practitioner for a day, helping children who have been sexually abused, so they can begin to rebuild their lives.

Any amount you raise this Childhood Day will mean we can help be there for children who need it most. 

"The counsellor changed my perspective and helped me do something I’d wanted to do for two years. She made me realise I didn’t have to let this destroy me."
