Nominate Rockinghorse as your Charity of the Year
Many schools now choose to nominate a Charity of the Year which allows staff and pupils to focus their fundraising efforts to a particular cause and something that the whole school can contribute towards. During this year, your school can pledge to raise a certain amount of money via a number of fundraising ideas and events.

Throughout the year we host various fundraising events such as our Dress as an Elf annual Christmas dress-down day, perfect for staff and pupils to get involved in.
