Host a ‘street party’ at your school to mark the end of World War One
3 charities, 3 colours, 1 cause... £1

Hosting your very own ‘street party’ at your school is an excellent way for students to soak up historical facts and figures of the First World War in celebration of Red, White & Blue Day. To help your day run smoothly, we will provide each registered school with a welcome pack, a variety of fun and educational lesson plans, competitions, stickers and to top it off, a ‘build your own’ paper aeroplane, tank or battleship activity.

The official Red, White & Blue Day is on Friday 5th October, but feel free to use any day which suits your school’s calendar. We’re encouraging school children to come dressed in the patriotic colours and donate just £1 to our 2018 fundraising campaign.

The Last Post - Magdalen College School Chapel, Brackley (November 2017)

Red, White & Blue Day is an annual fundraising campaign that raises money for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.

Money raised will be split between the three long-established charities that all have close ties with our Armed Forces.

Children can make a difference whilst enjoying creative activities that make learning fun”.
