Soccer Aid Playground Challenge is an event being run by Unicef to raise cash for children all around the world.
“On Friday 8 June 2018, thousands of children in school playgrounds across the UK will kick, bounce or carry a ball round an obstacle course that they’ve designed. The first ever Soccer Aid Playground Challenge is a brilliant way to get your whole school active, having fun and raising money to help children around the world – and it’s so easy:
- Get started by signing up for your FREE schools fundraising pack
- Get creative and design an obstacle course with your pupils
- Get ready for kick off!”
It takes about £5 to feed a child for a week in a Unicef centre – money raised by the school could go towards:
£28 Can provide and emergency supplies kit, including life-saving food to protect children from malnutrition.
£322 Can buy a water pump to provide clean, safe drinking water for a school, or whole village.
£1,164 Can build a child-friendly space where children can safely learn, play and receive care in times of emergency.
There are some incredible statistics about how Soccer Aid has already helped children over the last nine years.
Any schools interested, sign up and get your free pack of resources.
Note. Donations raised made to Soccer Aid for Unicef by 6 July 2018 will be doubled by the UK government, up to the value of £5 million, to support Unicef’s work for children in Swaziland and Lesotho.
