​Young people have an important part to play in supporting Treetops Hospice Care and we really value our relationships with schools and colleges within our community.

How your school can help

There are many ways in which you can support us, including making us your “charity of the year.” Treetops can support you by providing fundraising resource materials to help you start your activity. Some fun ideas are non-uniform days, sponsored events and collections.

For example, you could:

  • promote your own pop concert
  • organise a sports day
  • turn your Christmas concert into a fundraising opportunity
  • ask your teachers if you can be sponsored to hold a non-uniform day or a more adventurous dress outrageously day!

Many schools have supported Treetops Hospice Care and their enthusiasm has been fantastic. We can provide speakers who will visit your school and talk about the work we do. Whether it’s the whole school or one class, everyone can get involved in the fun.

Charity committee

Why not set up a charity committee who will hold meetings, learn how to budget and plan an event or activity – with the ultimate satisfaction of raising money for a much-needed cause. Being involved in the team is like running a small business. It could even be included in the school curriculum as a school project or in The Young Enterprise Scheme. We can also write off hours for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
