We smashed our fundraising goal!

“The kids loved the Playground Challenge so much we organised a whole Soccer Aid for Unicef week. Every class took on the obstacle course, we held a pupils vs teachers/parents football match, a keepy-uppy challenge and loads of other activities.”

“It’s the perfect way to get the whole school together for a good cause. Everyone (including staff) had the best time raising money to help children all over the world – and we smashed our fundraising goal!”

The Power of Play


Childhood should be one endless playtime. But around the world, disease, conflict, hunger and poverty are disrupting play for millions of  children. In 2019, Soccer Aid for Unicef is stepping up to defend play – and the UK government will match every £1 your school raises, until 23rd July, doubling the difference for children’s lives.

With your help even more children can have a chance to play
