Get Involved Schools And Colleges

Last year 82% of our work was with children and young people aged between 5 and 16 years. Supporting children and young people is at the heart of our work

It is thanks to fundraisers, like yourselves, that we were able to help young people across London and neighbouring boroughs cope with mental health challenges. Roundabout’s dramatherapy sessions are helping children who are anxious, having a challenging time with peers, suffering bereavement, dealing with trauma, experiencing family difficulties, preparing for changes and many more issues.

Students and staff at your school can help us continue to provide this support by fundraising. 

We identified your charity as having links with our school, as we place great emphasis on the performing arts here

Fundraising Ideas

We really want you to have FUN while you FUNdraise so why not take inspirations from these ideas and some of our previous fundraisers.

Hold a mufti day – dress up as your favourite story character and ask your fellow students to donate £1 for not having to wear uniform!

Coin Trail – bring in your loose change and see how far round your school your trail of coins reaches.

Storytelling Night – stories are at the heart of our work, you could hold a storytelling evening at your school. Wear your PJ’s, sell some snacks and settle down to listen to an evening of shared stories.

Hold a cake sale – here at Roundabout we love cakes and try to make sure somebody bakes them for every meeting! You could invite classes or year groups to take it in turns to hold a cake sale, or why not hold your very own Bake Off competition!

Quiz night – we especially like tasting rounds, where you have to identify the flavour and make of crisp or brand of chocolate. Traditional questions do work just as well!

Put on a Play – many of our dramatherapists trained as actors before training to be dramatherapist, we love going to the theatre. Why not perform a play or hold a talent competition and hold a collection for Roundabout

My friend and I have raised £10 for your charity

Two school friends asked their classmates for spare tuck shop money to donate
