Join schools across the UK for a game like no other
Throughout June, thousands of children in school playgrounds across the UK will kick, bounce or carry a ball round an obstacle course that they’ve designed. The first ever Soccer Aid Playground Challenge is a brilliant way to get your whole school active, having fun and raising money to help children around the world – and it’s so easy:
- Get started by signing up for your FREE schools fundraising pack
- Get creative and design an obstacle course with your pupils
- Get ready for kick off!
Need any more info? We’d love to hear from you over email at email@example.com or call us on 0300 330 5580.
Can’t do June? Don’t worry! The UK government will double every £1 you raise before 6 July, so just make sure you kick off before then!
Every child has the right to play
Sebenele is 14. He lives with his mum in a village in Swaziland, southern Africa. Last year, he was severely malnourished.
Now he is better and stronger thanks to support from Unicef.
“Last year, I was sick. When I was sick my body stopped growing but now I am growing and I feel well every day. Now I get enough food.
I’m playing football and many games that I couldn’t play last year. I go to a Unicef-supported teen club where I can meet my friends, play games and they teach us how to take care of ourselves. I make sure I’m a good boy and I help to take care of my mum.
When I finish school I want to be a nurse because you can take care of others as well as afford to eat.”
