Gold September


We are asking all schools to help raise awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month of September by having a non-uniform day on Friday, 22nd September allowing all students (and teachers) to dress as their favourite super-hero.

Having already had great success at Smalley Richardson Endowed Primary School alongside more schools wanting to take part, we are now reaching out to all schools accross the country to get involved and help make a difference.

By taking part, not only will your school have a great day, you will receive our school pack which consists of our charity box, our special Gold Ribbon pin-badges which the school can offer in return for a donation, our awareness leaflets to send out to parents subtly detailing the signs and symptoms to help raise more awareness, and other materials to help your day go smoothly.

To get started, simply register your school below and we will help organise the day for you. We will also supply a template letter for you to use to send out to parents. Below you will also find downloadable resource to use.

After losing one of our own pupils, Eddy, to cancer in April 2015, I have seen first hand how cancer effects their family and our school family too. We really need to do more to raise awareness and provide support for those brave children battling this horrible disease. Going Gold in September is just one small but important way of doing this.
