Hats and Shades
Hats and Shades is the perfect way of encouraging pupils to be safe in the sun whilst also raising funds to support local children with cancer, and their families.
The campaign encourages schools and nurseries across Northern Ireland to hold a Hats and Shades Day throughout the summer term, giving pupils the chance to wear their favourite hats and sunglasses for the day, while parents kindly make a donation to Cancer Fund for Children.
What you get
Each school will receive a free fundraising pack when they sign up, including:
Schools Visits – Due to Coronavirus, our usual school visits are not as simple as they once were. We now have specially made videos which explain the work of the charity and how your schools fundraising will help us.
Why get involved
Although we don’t see a whole lot of the sun in Northern Ireland, it’s still important that we teach children from a young age about how to take care in the sun – from wearing high factor sun cream, to covering up with a hat and a long t-shirt when playing outside, and especially when the sun’s rays are at their strongest in the middle of the day. Hats and Shades is a campaign that aims to educate children about the very simple steps they can take to stay safe in the sun.
Setting up your own event
Planning your own event is a great way to support us.
Whether organising a gala dinner, head shave, fun day or football match, there will be an event to suit you, and we'll be here to support you every step of the way.Read More
