Schools and Colleges
We love working with our local schools and colleges and consider young people to be the future of fundraising. We hope that by engaging with young people now, we’ll help to inspire in them a real love of fundraising and a desire to support their local community.
Primary school pupils love our interactive Hospice Heroes presentation, where they get the opportunity to be a doctor, nurse, chef or one of the many other professions who work here at the hospice. It gently helps them to develop an understanding of the work we do and the number of services we provide in South Devon.
For secondary schools and colleges, we can deliver talks to small tutor groups or large assemblies – whichever works best with your busy timetables.
These talks can be a useful tool in Citizenship classes and as a follow up, we ask pupils to consider undertaking a fundraising activity, such as a mufti day, bake sale or even adopting Rowcroft Hospice as their Charity of the Year.
It’s not all about fundraising. We rely heavily on the generosity of people’s time too and are always looking for volunteers to help at our various community events. There are many ways your students could invest in the future of Rowcroft Hospice.
