Your school can make a difference to children and young people in hospital by fundraising for ECHC!

Whether it's a non-school uniform day, a sponsored walk or something totally different - we can support your school or nursery to fundraise for ECHC - watch our video and download our fundraising ideas to get inspired! 

If your school is involved in the Duke of Edinburgh award (DoE) or Junior Award Scheme for Schools (JASS) you can find out more about what we offer by clicking HERE to visit our dedicated page where you can find fundraising and volunteering information. 

Eilish has spent a lot of time in hospital - Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity has funded the fun and entertainment that Eilish and her family have enjoyed through her long stays. 

When Eilish got back to school, she was determined that she was going to get her friends and teachers to fundraise for us.  And everyone enjoyed helping her!

We have a great fundraising pack, full of information, ideas and tips to get you started.

Even better, if you want us to come and tell you more, invite us to visit and talk to you! 

"We've done bake sales, dress down days, the school mile and so much more.  It's really easy and any school could do it!"
