Your school can join in by asking the children to dress up in red, white and blue and bring in £1. Please go to the Register page and sign up.

We have produced an A4 poster and A5 leaflet that can be used to send on to parents. In addition we also have a Welcome Pack, ideal if you have never held an RWBDay before, as it gives useful hints and activities used by other schools that might help you decide how you will run your own event. We also have a poster, as part of this pack, that you can personalise to give the date of your day.These are now available from the Downloads section of our website. Anything new we produce will be emailed directly to you, once you have registered, so you will not need to register a second time.

In addition, our previous videos and lesson plans are still available - just go to the Downloads link on the homepage where you can print off the relevant pages. The videos can also be viewed on the RWBDay Youtube site.

We have also produced stickers with the Red, White & Blue logo on them. If you would like a supply to use at your event please email giving your address and the quantity you require.

Once again we are working in partnership with Easycoin to ask schools to get their pupils to bring in any foreign currency their parents might have at home in drawers. We have produced a poster, which is part of the Welcome Pack, which you can use to advertise this initiative.

You might also want to consider speaking to any local companies that you work with to see if they would like to get involved with your day. Perhaps they might like to match-fund whatever funds your pupils raise, or give a donation to add to your collection. Companies have corporate responsibility objectives and this might be part of their own plans to help the community.
