The playground challenge

Given the difficulties which schools, teachers and pupils are currently facing, we’ve decided to postpone our plans for the 2021 Playground Challenge. If you’re still up for the challenge, we hope to be able to provide you with some great ways to fundraise in the coming months, whether it be at home, school or in your local park.

We hope you and your pupils are keeping well and thank you for doing such an incredible job in such difficult circumstances.

“The kids absolutely loved it”

“The Playground Challenge is such a fantastic opportunity for us to get our pupils outside, have a run around, and remind us all how important it is for children to be able to play.

The kids absolutely loved it and, as a member of staff, I loved seeing our students engaged in something meaningful.

We are so proud they could be involved in raising money for children all over the world.”

Kem Cetinay visits his old school to take part in a playground challenge.

Langtons Junior Academy take on their Playground Challenge in June 2019.

“I like to play with toy horses, elephants and tigers.”

Brothers Ayas, 5, and Younus, 9, were forced to leave their home in Myanmar when conflict erupted. Their parents were killed by soldiers and their lives were turned upside down.

They now live in the Balukhali refugee camp. Their favourite place is Unicef’s child friendly space where they play football, play with toys and have lessons. Your fundraising could help provide toys, books and games for children like Ayas and Younus.

Your school can help make sure more children have a childhood full of play, learning and laughter. 

Your Playground Challenge will make sure children like Ayas and Younus have the childhood they are entitled to.
