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)

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.
