Schools & Nurseries

Organise your own fundraising event

This could be anything from a bake sale, to a school disco, fancy dress or non-uniform day.

Get in touch with your plans and we will support you every step of the way.

You can request a member of the Dragonfly Cancer Trust team to be part of your assembly.


Take part in one of our events

Join our Junior Dragonflies at the Mini and Junior Great North Run for 3-16 year olds. This is a hugely popular event which takes place each year on the Newcastle Gateshead Quayside. If your child has managed to secure their own place and would like to join our team, please get in touch.

The Dragonfly Run is also a fantastic way to encourage pupils to take up running, as well as enjoying a great (and messy) day out!

Hold a Dragonfly Day

Registration per class (max 30 pupils): £10.00

Register your school or nursery to receive your Dragonfly Day pack which includes all the information and materials needed to hold your own Dragonfly Day.

Each pack includes information about Dragonfly Cancer Trust and can be tied in with any lessons you may be planning around nature, charities or PHSE lessons on the world we live in, depending on the age group taking part.

Materials are provided so that each pupil can decorate their own dragonfly peg to take home and hang up to remind them to be happy every day. Each pupil then collects donations to bring back into school to add to your school’s fundraising efforts.
