Shelter have launched their new education programme, providing free teaching materials as part of their ’50p Challenge’ fundraising initiative for UK schools. It has been a great project to work on knowing that the resources we develop will both educate and help young people.
There are over 112,000 homeless children in Great Britain today and simply by raising 50p your school can help to change their lives. Check out the website http://england.shelter.org.uk/support_us/schools to download the Assembly, and Lesson Plans for ages 4-11 years – all about home and what it means. We’ve also developed a fun totaliser poster and wall planner to support The 50p Challenge.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through their expert advice, support and legal services. And they campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to them for help. They’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
This year they want every child to really think about the importance of having a home. And with their help hopefully make this the biggest fundraising year yet, helping more children and their families than ever before. All they ask is that every pupil raises at least 50p for Shelter this year, but of course the more you give the more families and children we can help.
