Get Colourful

Categories: Community

Get your school to wear colourful clothes and raise money to help very sick kids and their families. 

Sign up for your Get Colourful pack.

How to take part

  1. There is no set date for schools to Get Colourful so you can hold it to suit your school calendar. Though, as a suggestion, why not hold it just before the Easter break as a dress down Thursday or Friday?
  2. Spread the word and ask pupils and teachers to Get Colourful by dressing up in their loudest, brightest clothes in exchange for a donation.
  3. When the day's over, collect the donations and send them to our fundraising team.

It’s easy and we'll support you every step of the way. 

There are also lots of other colourful ways to help your school boost its fundraising. To help with this we’ll send you our fundraising guide containing lots of bright ideas when you sign up here

For parents and pupils

Get your school involved by signing up to receive a Get Colourful pack that you can share share with your teacher, alongside telling them why you think the school should support Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

If you need any more examples, we've shared some of the amazing ways fundraising makes a difference to patients at our hospital. How could anyone say no?

For teachers

Register now to receive your Get Colourful pack containing everything you need to run a colourful dress-down day - and more. We'll provide you with posters, a fundraising guide, balloons, buckets and educational resources (including lesson plans) to help the day get going.

If there's anything else you need we’re always here to help!

Keep supporting Evelina London

We provide school speakers to help teach children about Evelina London and we can help you organise a visit to your school. Be inspired and find out more.

If your school wishes to keep supporting Evelina London beyond its Get Colourful day, you could consider making us your charity of the year. Get in touch to find out how by emailing
