Presents for Pounds

Swap presents for pounds and make a difference for children, young people and their families impacted by cancer

Instead of receiving Christmas gifts from pupils, we are inviting school staff to ask parents to make a donation to Cancer Fund for Children instead

What will your school receive when you register?

–  Posters for your school to promote your are involved in the event

–  A Cancer Fund for Children donation envelope for every pupil

–  A letter explaining Presents for Pounds to parents

–  A personalised card for the teacher so they know who the donation is from


Whether the whole school is taking part, or individual classes or pupils, we can help you tick one present off your list this Christmas!

If you are part of a school parents WhatsApp group, why not suggest in it that you get involved in Presents for Pounds this year?

School Visits

You can request a visit from our Schools & Youth Fundraiser allowing the pupils to hear all about the work of the charity, and also organise a cheque presentation photo to celebrate the incredible donation you raise.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch today to enquire:

How will your money help?

This December alone, approximately 40 children and young people will be diagnosed with cancer across the island of Ireland.

We simply could not be there to provide the right support at the right time without amazing schools like you by our side.

From helping to provide therapeutic short breaks at Daisy Lodge in Newcastle, Co Down for families from across the island of Ireland, to helping provide support on the hospital ward during a young persons cancer treatment, or helping provide support in the family home to help young people deal with the impact cancer has had on their lives, your donation will make a massive impact and ensure these young people do not have to face cancer alone.
