Schools and higher education
Are you part of a nursery, school, college or university, looking to engage students or colleagues while making an incredible difference to your local community?
By supporting Barts Charity, you’ll be helping patients and the people of London – and we’re here to help you every step of the way.
However you want to make a difference to your local community, we’ll support you.
Tap into young people’s creative or inventive ideas, come up with your own, or get in touch with us to get started!
Supporting you, supporting us
You can choose to help or fundraise for Barts Charity generally – where we ensure it goes where it’s most needed in the hospitals. Or, there may be a particular area you’d like to support.
Some ways you can help include:
- Non-uniform or dress-down days
- Bake sales
- Sponsored activities – maybe a sponsored silence?
- School talent show
- Cards for Bravery (see below)
North Primary School
Students of North Primary School, Southall – led by Kulwinder and Jaspal – showed incredible teamwork and determination to help patients in the hospitals we support.
They supported our Easter appeal (Egbert's Eggs-traordinary Challenge) with a fantastic donation of chocolate and toys - and they also got involved in Cards for Bravery - hand making hundreds of greeting cards to give to patients.
We're grateful for their wonderful support - if you're interested in doing something similar, please get in touch.
Brampton Manor Academy
The Brampton Manor Academy choir, made up of students from the school, sang at the elderly wing of Newham Hospital.
Their singing was a unique way to brighten up the day of patients, staff and visitors to the hospital – and shows that there are many ways to offer support.
Cards for Bravery
Would your school be interested in holding a Cards for Bravery arts and crafts day, making handmade cards for patients in hospital? Cards for Bravery is the fun and creative way for young people to make a difference to the patients we support. It’s also an incredibly simple yet moving way to brighten a patient’s day.
If your school would like to get involved, please email Simon to find out more.
