Free fundraising resources
Free teaching resources to rally pupils to become part of a fundraising movement involving Children in Need are being offered to schools.
Champions of Change aims to inspire children to take charge of their own fundraising while developing life skills.
To help encourage students to take part, teachers can now sign up to receive one of 8,000 free kits provided by BBC Children in Need and Lloyds Bank.
The resources, which will be available from September, contain lesson plans built around the national curriculum to motivate the children to take on responsibility while having fun raising money for charity.
The programme was trialled last year in more than 50 primary and secondary schools.
Wendy Aitken, headteacher of High Coniscliffe CE Primary School in Durham, which participated in the trial, said: “The children loved the lessons and taking responsibility for all of their fundraising activities – and we managed to increase the funds we raised compared with previous years.”
