We love working with children and hearing their creative ideas about how to raise money for us. From running break time tuck shops to doing a sponsored playground walk there is something for every age to get involved.
Due to the nature of our work some schools may have students who have used our service so the children know what a difference our charity can make and want to make a difference to the lives of other children.
Whatever the connection we would love you to get involved – whether it’s a one off event or becoming your chosen charity of the year please get in touch.
We can come and participate in assemblies; we even have our life sized bear mascot – Jeremiah who can make a special guest appearance. We can participate in school fetes and support any other event that you have in mind. It’s over to the children to be creative, have fun and make a difference.
The staff and pupils at Beechwood Primary School have raised funds for us and wanted to share why:
At Beechwood Primary School we have raised money for Jeremiah’s Journey several times over the past few years. We have done this through running the School’s Challenge in the Plymouth Half Marathon and collecting sponsorship money, the children ran most of the mileage in a lunchtime school running club and then ran the final mile with all the other schools on the actual day of the marathon around Plymouth Hoe.
We chose to raise money for Jeremiah’s Journey as they have been involved with a few of our families with bereaved children, particularly after the tragic loss of one of our pupils, in 2008 as a result of a gas explosion.
Grief and death is a tough topic to face for anyone, but for children it is even more confusing and difficult to understand. We are happy to work alongside such a wonderful charity to support these children through their time of loss.
