Join us for a Hats and Shades Day this Summer
Hats and Shades is the perfect way of encouraging pupils to be sun safe in the summer 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:
- Activity Sheets
- Colouring Pencils
- Sponsorships forms
- Sun cream
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. Over the last 5 years, Cancer Fund for Children has helped to educate over 18,000 primary and nursery school children about the importance of sun safety and raised a staggering £52,000 to support local families whose lives have been impacted by cancer.
