Schools, colleges and universities like to be part of their local communities and as a local charity caring for local people, we can offer a link that encourages students to think about the problems people are facing right on their doorstep. We do, of course, do this in a sensitive and age-appropriate way and there are many exciting and enjoyable ways that students can be involved in raising money to support patients and families in the local community coping with a diagnosis of life-limiting illness, for example:
Organise an event
A fantastic way of supporting us is to organise a fundraising event. This could be a non-uniform day or a charity week where teachers and students can make a donation to support our services. Alternatively, you could follow in the footsteps of Tring Park School and dedicate a night of your school performance to Rennie Grove, with the proceeds from the ticket sales coming to us.
Groovy Shoes Day
The next Rennie Groovy Shoes Day will take place on Friday 23 June 2017 and once again we'll be encouraging everyone to take part and wear their grooviest shoes for the day in return for a donation of £1. Find out more.
Charity of the Year
Selecting a Charity of the Year gives everyone involved a chance to really understand the cause and see the difference you’re making. It’s a great way to boost morale, promote team work and raise your profile because everyone wants to know how you’re getting on. Our volunteer Ambassadors will happily provide a talk to help your staff and students decide on who they wish to support. We can also provide marketing support for your fundraising efforts, as well as publicity online and in the local press.
