Why your support counts

We receive more than 87% of our funding from generous supporters. Amazing  people in schools across the country who like you, believe in our work - believe that every childhood is worth fighting for.

"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."
A ChildLine caller

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

More about our work

Pay in your money

CoinsEncourage your pupils to collect their donations and sponsorship money before 26 February 2016 and bring it to school in the form of a cheque payable to 'NSPCC registered charity'. 

Please don't send cash in the post. If children bring in cash or sponsor money, please could your school issue a cheque for the amount raised and send this to us together with any sponsor forms to enable us to claim gift aid.

Please write the code 163209 on the back of each cheque.

All you need to do then is complete the record of payment slip below, and return it, together with your cheques to:

NSPCC Number Day 163209, NSPCC, Schools Fundraising, Weston House, 42 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3NH.

Please photocopy the form to keep as a record of how much you raised.

Make a donation on behalf of your school using a credit or debit card. 

Remember to give us your school details so we can thank you.

As soon as we receive your record of payment slip showing the total amount your school has raised, we will send you the official Number Day certificate and letter from the NSPCC to say a big 'thank you' to everyone.

Oxford University Press has once again teamed up with the NSPCC to produce some additional, exciting Number Day activities.

These have been designed to have clear links to the maths curriculum and also put the fun into fundraising!

"Oxford University Press is delighted to be supporting the NSPCC's Number Day for the second year running. This initiative is a fantastic way of making maths meaningful to all, regardless of age or ability. It also helps to raise awareness among pupils, teachers and parents of the incredible work delivered by the NSPCC."

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."
Sarah Imbush / Head of Maths
