Schools can run a Roald Dahl dress-up day to fundraise for charity
Schools are being invited to run a Roald Dahl dress-up day in support of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity to help children with complex lifelong conditions to lead a more marvellous life.
Launching the appeal on Roald Dahl Story Day on 13 September, the charity is inviting teachers to run their fundraising dress-up days on any day in the school year.
Hosting a Roald Dahl dress-up day is a great way to support the charity while having a lot of fun and celebrating the joy of reading and the power of spellbinding stories.
There are so many inspiring characters for staff and pupils to choose, from Willy Wonka to Matilda to Fantastic Mr Fox. Some may even get a giant peach or two turning up!
Teachers can register a Roald Dahl Dress-Up Day here and the charity’s schools’ team will be in touch with buckets of fundraising support and resources to make their Roald Dahl dress-up day event a truly splendiferous one. There are even some dressing up tips and a downloadable dressing up guide to be found on the website.
All funds raised will go towards supporting Roald Dahl’s specialist nurses and the work they do in improving the lives of children with complex medical conditions and supporting their families.
There are currently over 100 Roald Dahl nurses across the country supporting more than 32,000 children living with some of the most serious and complex health conditions in the UK, and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity is appealing for support in raising £1 million to establish more Roald Dahl Nurses to support more children.
