School fundraising

Get your school involved

Are you a school, college or education group? Join us today and help transform the lives for our patients.

Often, it’s the smaller things that make all the difference for our patients, like distraction toys for children undergoing medical procedures, or newspapers in waiting rooms.

You make it all possible!

Schools fundraising ideas:

  • £1 dress down day.
  • Sponsored walk/run.
  • Bake sale.

We would love to come and talk at your school assembly to tell your school or class more about how we help children here at the hospital and how you can get involved and support us.

Florence Nightingale schools pack

In 2020 we celebrated two important anniversaries:

  • 200 years since the birth of Florence Nightingale – founder of modern nursing
  • 25 years since Southampton Hospitals Charity began supporting patients, their families and our staff.

We invite you to continue the celebrations by remembering Florence Nightingale and what an impact she had on nursing and our health, and help us to continue to do her good work wherever you are.

Did you know that we are part of the 999 Club?

Staff at Southampton Children’s Hospital have developed an initiative to reduce young people’s fears of treatment and admission – by inviting them into the emergency department.

Known as the 999 Club, it involves inviting groups of school children from reception year and above to visit the emergency department where they are able to meet staff, tour the facility and see inside an ambulance.

Any schools interested in becoming members of the 999 Club can email joyce.stebbings@uhs.nhs.uk for more information. At the moment obviously due to Covid-19, this initiative has been paused, but as soon as it is safe, we will be restarting it.
