Helm asking nurseries and primary schools to fundraise for us by holding a ‘Dress up as your dream job’ day!  The aim of the day is to raise money and awareness about our life-saving work helping disadvantaged young people gain life skills, SQA qualifications and work experience.

Nurseries and primary schools can choose to hold their dress-up day whenever works for them.  Helm would appreciate organisations running the day to run it as a fundraiser and encourage donations from parents and carers.  Every penny raised through this project will go directly towards our work with young people from Tayside.

If you register, as a thank you for your support, we’ll send you:

An activity pack for the children to do in the run-up to the event.

An A4 poster to stick up on your noticeboard, and a digital copy to distribute to parents online where needed.

Stickers and certificates to give to your young professionals on the day

Some guidance for you about running the day with some creative ideas and activities you can use

We want the day to be a fun, positive experience for everyone involved and we’re mindful of the financial pressure many families may be facing, and the extra strain that dress-up days can put on them. To make sure it’s a fun day, we’d suggest encouraging parents to be as creative and crafty as possible, they don’t need to buy new outfits for the children to enjoy the day!

If you’re interested in taking part or would like more information, get in touch with the Fundraising Team by emailing hello@helmtraining.co.uk.

If you’ve already run the day to support Helm and would like to donate the funds, please visit Dress Up as your Dream Job day – JustGiving or contact the Fundraising Team on hello@helmtraining.co.uk for alternative ways to make the donation.
