Schools and young people We think it’s important that children are aware of the world around them. That’s why for 20 years we have been visiting schools and youth groups to educate children about the damaging effects of some of the world’s oldest and most neglected diseases, such as leprosy.Fundraising is a fun way for children to learn about some of the issues that affect their world and gives them the opportunity to learn that a contribution, however big or small, can make a huge difference.Getting involved can also empower them as individuals and teach them valuable life skills such as literacy and numeracy, organisation, creativity and healthy living. Our comprehensive schools programme is delivered by a network of friendly community fundraisers, who have experience delivering presentations to a variety of age groups. They will help students understand and feel enthusiastic about the cause they are supporting. We’ll organise everything for you Your local Community Fundraiser will visit your school to deliver an educational presentation carefully tailored to your chosen age group.We’ll work with you to find a date that suits you and provide you with posters, leaflets and information sheets to reduce the administrative burden.You can arrange your own fundraising challenge or have one of our qualified workout instructors to come and do a popular Lepra Workout challenge.Children will collect sponsorship using one of our fun sponsorship forms and will return the money to the Community Fundraiser when they return to the school.We make sure that everyone gets something special to take home. This includes a badge for all those that participate, and every child who raises over £25 will get one of our fabulous bendy man alarm clocks.
