To celebrate the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, our annual schools’ fundraising Around the World challenge is even bigger and better!
Our ambitious aim is to recruit 195 schools, nurseries and youth groups to take part, each representing one of the countries in the world, just like at the Olympic Games!
It’s a really fun and unique way for schools to fundraise and it gets children active too. And this year, there are even more reasons to get involved!
Every child who raises £10 will be entered into a prize draw to win a P&O Family Mini Cruise for 4. And the school or nursery that raises the most per head will win a classroom makeover with up to £2500 to spend on resources, thanks to PPG in Birstall!
Not only that, but thanks to our sponsors Toyota RRG, one lucky school will also win a visit from a Team GB Olympic athlete! Wow!
With so many good reasons to take part, we hope every school, nursery and youth group in West Yorkshire will be inspired to join us on our travels!
Tara Hamilton, marketing co-ordinator at RRG Toyota said: “RRG Group have been longstanding supporters of Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and we are extremely proud of the amazing work they continue to do for families in West Yorkshire. Our West Yorkshire Toyota Centres are very excited to be sponsoring this year’s Olympic-sized Around the World event. This is a great event for local schools to get involved in, as it encourages children to be more active while helping a worthy cause. As Toyota GB are Official Mobility Partners of both Team GB and Paralympics GB, with our sponsorship of this event we are thrilled to be able to add some additional Olympic magic for those taking part. We would like to wish all of the schools and nurseries involved, happy fundraising!”
If you work in, have contacts at or your child attends a school or nursery in the local area, we’d love you to encourage them to take part. Click here
