Schools Seedling Challenge

Does your school have what it takes to grow £10 into support for local children?

We are calling on schools across Kent to help raise vital funds by taking part in our Schools Seedling Challenge to support local children in need of Dandelion Time’s support.

How does it work?

Simply let us know how many classes or groups in your school are taking part and we’ll send each of them £10. It’s up to each team how they grow the money into much needed funds for Dandelion Time. Remember you can re-invest your funds from one activity to fund another to grow the amount you raise!

When does it start?

You decide! All we ask if that you return the £10 seed investment with the money you have raised within an agreed time frame. You may like to take on the challenge over a month, a term or the entire School year.

Fundraising ideas

The challenge is designed to test pupil’s entrepreneurial, marketing and budgeting skills. From ticketed talent shows to read-a-thons and dress up days – there are so many ways you can get together to grow your seedling funds! Download our fundraising pack for lots of inspiration and ideas.

Please do get in touch with Kenresa kenresastratford@dandeliontime.org.uk if you would like us to present at your assembly
