Schools Fundraising

Get your school involved and help us to give smiles to children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care.

Fundraising for Theodora is not only a great way to help us make a difference for poorly children, it’s also a way for your pupils to learn about giving and helping other children in need – a vital lesson that builds character and compassion.

We have a useful lesson plan which you can download here. It includes discussion points and activities which will help to teach your students all about the hospital environment, the Giggle Doctors and how your students can help give poorly children the chance to laugh and smile. In turn they can also learn that the hospital environment doesn’t have to be frightening place with scary looking equipment and painful procedures, which could benefit any future experiences.

SchoolsYou can also hold your own fundraising event, get the kids, teachers and parents involved in sponsored events or nominate us to become your school’s Charity of the Year. Check out our fundraising packs below for ideas and resources to get you started. 

If you’re students are interested in supporting us and would like to hear more about our work, we can even arrange for a Giggle Doctor to come and speak at your school assembly. They will be able to witness the magic of a Giggle Doctor visit and really feel the difference of their fundraising efforts.

Brilliant entertainment for our boy. Left him smiling and he forgot about being ill.

A massive thank you to Dr Hip Hap and Dr Flowerpot both who visited Byron on the verge of a melt down because he was  very scared about being in hospital again. Both Mum and Dad weren't far from tears also, knowing he would rather be doing what little boys do best. A few minutes after saying hi we were all laughing and having a wonderful time, and Byron now thinks hospitals are great fun.
