Fundraising ideas for children

For safety reasons, always discuss your plans with a parent or other adult member of your family and ask them to ensure that you are adequately supervised. Although we have suggested some fundraising ideas below, feel free to use your imagination and create new challenges of your own.

“No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.”     GIL SCOTT-HERON


Charitable status

ChildCare Malawi is unable to register with the Charity Commission because our annual income is less than £5,000. However, we are registered as
a Small Charity with HMRC, which entitles us to claim Gift Aid on eligible donations.
